Study finds drinking this alcoholic drink before bed can help keep the weight off

This is a game changer!

If you’re currently nursing a generous beer belly, you might want to consider changing your tipple.

New research suggests that drinking one type of alcohol in the evening can help people keep the weight off.

The bad news is, it’s not beer. The good news is, however, it’s even stronger than beer.

A Washington State University and Harvard study found that wine could be the latest tool in your arsenal to stop you piling on the pounds.

According to the research, wine contains a chemical called resveratrol, which works in the body by stopping fat cells from gaining more fat.

The same research proved that drinking half a bottle a day can help beat obesity by 70%. We’re not sh*tting you.

The team found that drinking wine at night also helped people feel fuller and reduced the chance of late night snacking – which is one of the biggest culprits to weight gain.

The research was then backed up by a second study from Harvard’s weight gain study of 20,000 people – which revealed that out of all of those that gained a large amount of weight, none of them were drinkers.

So bottoms up, to keep your weight down.
