The 2 week experiment reached its end Sunday night and I weighed myself yesterday morning first thing. In two weeks of drinking red wine every night before bed I lost 1.8 lbs. This brings my total weight loss to 11.6 lbs in just under 2 months. Not bad, not bad at all.
Again there’s no real way to tell if the red wine made a huge difference or not and I still worked out and counted the calories of everything I consumed, even the wine. We’ll see how I do in the next 2 weeks and compare when I just have a glass of wine occasionally.
So after my my last glass of my detox tea a friend sent me this link. I joked maybe I should try drinking 1 or 2 glasses of red wine every night for 2 weeks and see what happens. The more I thought about it the more it sounded like a fun and interesting experiment. I already enjoy having a glass of wine with dinner, doing that every night won’t change my routine much and if anything I should sleep well. So last night after boxing class I went to Trader Joes and picked up 6 different bottles. The cashier of course asked when the party was because the only other things I bought was some mozzarella, tomatoes (for my greek pita pizza dinner, see that post here), honey, mangos and olive oil. I told him I was doing a experiment and he agreed that drinking 2 glasses of red wine a day was a pretty good experiment.
So here we go! I started last night. Cheers!
