This may sound too good to be true, but who are we to argue with science?! No one, that's who.

So ladies, prepare yourselves for this one.

According to a recent study, which was published in Marie Claire today, researchers from Harvard and Washington State University have revealed that the practice of indulging in a tipple or two before bed does not, in fact, hinder your weight loss mission, but may actually help your mission more than you ever thought possible.

It has been established that wine contains something known as resveratrol - a chemical which stops fat cells from gaining more fat.

In a report which appears to negate everything we've ever thought about weight loss and alcohol consumption, scientists have asserted that the consumption of two glasses of wine a day may help beat obesity by a whopping 70%.

Further to this, a study conducted by the University of Denmark has established that individuals who drank on a daily basis boasted similar waistlines than their sober counterparts.

Excuse us, we need to sit down for a moment.

According to the study, drinking wine before bed time stops you reaching for a late night snack by keeping you feeling fuller for longer.

If, however, you, like us, become a slave to the cheeseboard when you've a glass of wine in one hand, then you may want to dismiss the results of this study entirely.

Sigh.
