New Delhi: Most people are in the habit of washing down their dinners with a glass or two of red wine. If you’re one of them, then this one’s for you!
If you drink red wine after your dinner, then you’re actually doing your health a favour. Yes, it’s true!
While many people assume that drinking alcohol before bedtime is bad for health and can result in weight gain, a research suggests the opposite.
One of the reasons for this is that red wine suppresses our cravings for sweet and fatty foods that we are normally tempted to consume after meals. In fact, red wine makes you feel fuller and satisfied.
Secondly, if you substitute a glass of red wine for a bowl of ice cream, cake or cookies, chips, etc., your calorie intake will also reduce automatically to a great extent.
Alcohol produces zero glucose and red wine scores very low on the glycemic index, which means it is not very fattening.
Although, it is essential to note that excess of anything is bad and moderation is the key to good health. Furthermore, if you are going to drink a glass of red wine at night and expect to lose weight, you have to forego consuming other calories.
The video you are about to watch, explains the benefits of drinking red wine after dinner in detail.
