This article has been very informative, thanks. I too get the munchies when I have a drink and I thought that there was something wrong with me, but come to find out I'm not the only one. That is good to know.

I'm trying hard not to drink, bc I get tend to get the "munchies" ! lol When I do drink, it's always Rum and DIET Coke, so at least I'm not hurting myself too bad there.
Actually, DOGTURTLEWMN, neither of those things are true (wine does not help you lose weight or build muscle). Some studies have shown a correlation between people who have 1-2 drinks a day and maintaining a healthier weight, but there's nothing about the properties of wine that CAUSE that to happen. There tends to be confounding variables like: most people who drink 1-2 servings/day have healthier habits in general. In terms of building muscle, physiologically that it doesn't make sense that any properties of wine would enhance that process. Coach Nicole

I heard recently that red wine helps you lose weight and build muscle. When I was a Weight Watcher, I had a small glass of red wine every night & lost lots of weight. I am doing it again, and I am losing when I thought I stopped!
