We have all been there, you finished dinner, but don’t stay satisfied until bedtime. Your hunger starts creeping up on you. Do not worry, you are not alone. Many of us have the urge to snack in the evening and studies have found a great solution: wine.
That’s right … you read that correctly.
Recently, a few studies have discovered that wine can help diabetics and improve your sex drive, but the findings also suggest wine is a great choice to prevent midnight munchies. Linda Monk is a 47-year-old women who has had success losing 6 pounds in 3 weeks. She attributes the success to having a nightly glass of whine that suppressed her cravings for sweet and salty snacks. Linda feels sated after a moderate portion of wine so she no longer goes overboard on late night eating. Apparently red wine is the preferred choice.
The Daily Mail reports, a study that was conducted over 13 years at Harvard University found that amongst a group of 20,000 women, the women who drank half a bottle of wine each day lessened their risk of obesity. Half a bottle of wine is the equivalent of two glasses of wine. Linda and other women are apparently living proof of the study.
Samantha Merrit, a 40-year-old women, also enjoys her wine in the evening and claims “the calories don’t seem to have made an impact on the bathroom scale … Now, I can happily say no to a dessert and I treat myself to a glass or two around four nights a week.” Merritt says she not only has a decrease in appetite, but also less anxiety and finds it easier to sleep.
Now, keep in mind moderation is still crucial! Having a glass or two of wine before bed may be a good substitute for snacking on chocolate, but drinking too much wine can lead to consuming more calories than a late night chocolate binge … not to mention making you feel pretty hungover for work. Make sure to only have 1-2 glasses if you want curb your cravings, sleep a little better, and feel less deprived while dieting.
