New study says wine won’t pack on the pounds for women



New research suggests that moderate female drinkers have a lower risk of obesity than teetotalers and are less likely to gain weight than those who drink mineral water. The study shows that a calorie from alcohol has less impact on a women’s weight than a calorie from food. 

After studying almost 20 000 women over a 13-year period, researchers in Boston, USA concluded that the non-drinkers gained the most weight, while the women’s overall weight gain decreased as their alcohol intake increased. It is thought that the liver develops a separate metabolic pathway to break down alcohol, with surplus energy turned into heat and not fat.

Unsurprisingly, red wine caused the least weight gain, while beer and spirits tipped the scales to the heavier side. The study, published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, thus seems to confirm that there is no clear correlation between alcohol consumption and weight gain, thereby dispelling a common dietary belief that weight gain is linked to alcohol intake.
