Study reveals drinking two glasses of red wine before bed may help you lose weight

Stop feeling guilty about having that second glass of wine!

Wine has always held a slightly loftier position on the health totem pole than other alcohol options, but now science just may have proved it once and for all. 

Two studies conducted by Washington State University and Harvard Medical School, have found that consuming two glasses of red wine before you head to bed could help you lose weight. 

Researchers honed in on the appetite-suppressing, fat-cell-fighting chemical Reservatrol, which is found in most wines.

The study was conducted over 13 years with around 20,000 women and found that those who consumed two glasses of wine daily (at least one glass at a later hour) were 70 per cent more likely to experience weight loss.

So, as long as it's consumed in moderation and as part of a healthy and balanced diet, you probably don't need to beat yourself up about a glass of wine here and there - science says!
