If you're looking for an excuse to enjoy a couple of glasses of wine in the evenings, look no further...
Because we're about to tell you some of the best news we've heard in a long time!
Scientists have just revealed, drinking two glasses of red wine before bed could help you lose weight.
Yes! Drinking wine = losing weight.
The study - which was conducted by Washington State University and Harvard Medical School - explains that there is a polyphenol called "reservatrol" in red wine that lends us a hand in the weight loss department.
This "reservatrol" converts white fat into "obesity-fighting" beige fat, which is much easier for the body to break down.
PLUS, the study also found the "reservatrol" suppresses your appetite as well!
Not a big drinker?
No worries, the magical polyphenol can also be found in some fruits, like blueberries, strawberries and grapes.
