Study: A Glass of Wine Before Bedtime Equals to 1 Hour in the Gym

Did you know that even a couple of glasses of your favourite drink could have some impressive benefits? Study says that a glass of wine before bed can be a great way to lose those excess weight? Read on to find out more!


A study from Washington State University from July 2015 reported that wine and weight loss go hand-in-hand. This is due to a substance called resveratrol. The compound, which is present in red wine, was shown to help convert “white fat” into “beige fat.” (In which the latter is easier to burn off.)

This good news is supported by scientists from Washington State University and Harvard, who have discovered that your nightly glass of wine (or two) can actually assist with weight loss .

As per studies, you can help prevent weight gain by 70% from drinking at least 2 glasses of wine a day, and red wine is the best choice because of the resveratrol.

But, for best results drinking wine has to be in the evening, and this sadly does not apply to a lunchtime glass.


This news may tempt you to keep that bottle of red on your nightstand, but, doctors are typically wary of recommending that people start drinking wine, because too much alcohol can obviously have harmful effects on the body. Also, it is worth noting that there are much more efficient (and potentially healthier) ways of getting the benefits of resveratrol.

“Many of the beneficial polyphenols are insoluble, and therefore, get filtered out during the wine production process,” as per Professor Min Du of Washington State. He suggests snacking on grapes, blueberries, and strawberries, all of which are known natural sources of resveratrol.
