Can this be true? Can red wine actually be good for you and help you lose weight?
The answer is yes! In moderation.
Like most things, over indulging can lead to overconsumption of calories and in this case alcohol.
Alcohol in small quantities can help you to relax, improve mood and sex drive.

Too much alcohol can harm your liver and kidneys and bladder. So drink up but keep it to 1-2 glasses a day!
Does red wine help you lose weight?
Red wine contains Resveratrol. A polyphenol found in some fruits including grapes.
Resveratrol is one of the polyphenols that has been shown to help burn fat by turning white fat into brown fat, the fat cells that burn energy and produce heat. This is important not only for weight loss but over-all health.
White fat is stored by our bodies and causes us to gain weight. It also holds toxins. Once converted to brown fat it helps us to lose weight.
All polyphenols found in fruits and veggies are important for nutrition and can help with this process but resveratrol is the main polyphenol found in wine.

Red wine for health
The benefits of drinking red wine are pretty well documented.
The nutrients found in red wine are known for increasing levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol and protecting against artery damage.
This is good news for your heart!
Are there better alternatives than wine for weight loss and health?
Science shows that fruits such as grapes, raspberries,strawberries and apples all contain more polyphenols and specifically resveratrol that wine.
This means that consuming these fruits is and even better idea than drinking wine.
This is great news for those that can’t or don’t want to consume alcohol.
Do I recommend red wine for weight loss?
Personally, I like a glass of wine a few times a week.
I also like to make smoothies with grapes, raspberries and strawberries.
I would definitely incorporate these fruits into your diet for weight loss whether it’s in the form of wine, eaten by themselves or incorporated into smoothies or other recipes or all of the above.

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
