Women Who Consume Alcohol Gain Less Weight: Study


A study recently released by the Archives of Internal Medicine shows that initially normal-weight women who consumed a light to moderate amount of alcohol gained less weight than their abstaining counterparts. Researchers charted the drinking habits of 19,220 American women "aged 38.9 years or older who were free of cardiovascular disease, cancer, and diabetes mellitus and had a baseline body mass index within the normal range of 18.5 to less than 25" over the course of 13 years. Approximately 60 percent of the women reported drinking lightly or moderately and the remaining 40 didn't drink at all. The results showed that 41.3% of the women became overweight over the 13 years and 3.8% became obese. The non-drinkers gained an average of 9 pounds each, while the regular drinkers only gained 3 pounds.
