Contrary to popular belief that beer could make you add a few pounds to your body, a new study claims that drinking beer could make you lose weight. Experts also add that exercising is not really the answer to weight loss.

CBS Pittsburgh reported about this study made by scientists at the Oregon University saying that drinking beer just might help you finally lose weight. Scientists sampled 48 mice, which they separated into two groups.

The first group of mice received about 30 to 60 milligrams of xanthohumol and the other group was spared from the said substance. All of them were given the same high-fat diet for 12 weeks.

The Inquisitr said the result showed that the group of mice that received xanthohumol lost weight. They even noticed that 80 percent of those mice's cholesterol was also reduced.

The same result could happen to dieters only if they would drink about 3,500 pints of beer within 24 hours. The microbes forming in the gut are responsible for such drastic weight loss.

There were initial reports about a study related to this about microbes and apparently other food including chocolate and cheese are huge contributors to weight loss. Just like those, beer has elements that would enhance the kinds of microbes and their amount that would make it easier for anyone to lose weight. As soon as these microbes start doing their job in the abdominal region of the body, dieters won't have problems dealing with their weight loss issues.

Researchers also included in their study their observation regarding exercising as an activity that plays an irrelevant role in weight loss compared to eating and drinking. Despite this study, a lot of people are still skeptical about drinking beer could cause weight loss.

Are you one of those? Or are you rejoicing because finally, you can drink beer and lose weight at the same time? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below.
