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!
This had to go in my favs. I enjoy a drink every now and then and just knowing the calorie intake is very helpful. I've always cut down extremely for breakfast and lunch if I knew I could possibly have a drink that night -- now I can follow calories a lot closer, Thanks!
