How a glass of wine a day could help you lose weight

Giving up alcohol in order to lose weight is one of the most annoying parts of being on a diet.
However the results of a new study have suggested that drinking a moderate amount of alcohol every day could actually stop us putting on weight.
According to scientists at the Navarro University in Spain, people who drink wine and diet could lose weight more easily than people who abstain, or those who drink other types of alcohol.
A spokesperson for the researchers explained: “Light-to-moderate alcohol intake, especially of wine, may be more likely to protect against, rather than promote, weight gain.”
The researchers said they analysed the results of 31 studies and did not find a link between moderate drinking and weight gain.
