Drinking Wine Before Bed Could Help You Lose Weight

One study is claiming that wine and weight loss go hand-in-hand.

Looking to shed a few pounds? According to science, some nighttime wine might just be the solution.

A study out of Washington State University from July 2015 showed that wine and weight loss go hand-in-hand, thanks to a substance called resveratrol. The compound, which is found in red wine, was shown to help convert 'white fat' into "beige fat." (The latter is easier to burn off.)

As far as when it's best to sip on that vino, a separate 2012 study concluded that a late-night glass of wine curbed snacking, which, in turn, aided in weight loss (but, it should be noted that the study involved bees, not humans).

So while this news may tempt you to keep a bottle of red on your nightstand, not so fast—doctors are typically wary of recommending that people start drinking wine, since too much alcohol can obviously have harmful effects on the body. It's also worth noting that there are much more efficient (and potentially healthier) ways of reaping the benefits of resveratrol.

"Many of the beneficial polyphenols are insoluble and get filtered out during the wine production process," said Professor Min Du of Washington State. Instead, he suggests snacking on blueberries, grapes and strawberries, all of which are natural sources of resveratrol.
