Have you ever felt hungry before bedtime, even though you have recently had your dinner?
You should know that you’re not the only person that feels that way – many of us feel the exact same thing. It’s hard to cope with hunger and the need to have a little snack at midnight.
Luckily, science has discovered the fact that wine is the perfect thing which helps you control your hunger at late hours!
It wasn’t long ago before this discovery was made. It was known that wine can help fight diabetes and improve your sex drive, but wine can also prevent midnight munches, which is amazing.
According to a study at Harvard University, where about 20,000 women were tested, most of the test subjects reported that the benefit of having a glass of wine every night is that this alcoholic beverage suppresses their cravings for snacks that are unhealthy, such as sweets, biscuits, and chocolate.
Instead, having a glass or two of wine made them feel full, thus keeping them away from the fridge and wanting more food.
The Daily Mail gave a report on that study, which lasted about 13 years, and the end results suggest that half a bottle of wine (that’s mostly about two glasses) every day will surely lessen the potential risks of dealing with obesity.
A few of the test subjects noted that the calories found in wine just don’t seem to make almost any impact on their bathroom scales, as they measure their own weight. They were so happy that they gladly said no to each and every one of those midnight trips to the fridge.
The key thing here is to be moderate, and that’s the whole point to this research. Even though awarding yourself with a glass or two before bed (which is a good substitute for chocolate and all other sweets), drinking too much wine can lead up to you consuming more calories than without consuming it at all.
It can even leave you hungover the next morning. So make sure to stick to two glasses if you want to feel less hungry and sleep better as well.
