Moderate Amounts of Alcohol May Help Women Stay Thin, Study Finds

STOP! In the name of beer…and other alcohol. A recent study has found consuming moderate amounts of alcohol may help women stay thin. Alcohol and thin in the same sentence?! You never thought you’d see the day!

AOL News reports that in the new study published in the March 8 issue of the Archives of Internal Medicine, researchers followed 22,000 women ages 39 or older for 13 years, tracking their weight gain and alcohol consumption.

“Compared with women who did not drink at all, those who consumed some but less than 40 grams per day of alcohol were less likely to become overweight or obese,” a press release from the Archives of Internal Medicine stated. “Women who drank 15 to less than 30 grams per day had the lowest risk, which was almost 30 percent lower than that of nondrinkers.”
