Wine and Weight

Dieters - here's something to drink to. According to the May/June issue of Weight Watchers Magazine, "recent research found that people who had one or two alcoholic drinks per day were 54 percent less likely than teetotalers to be obese." Before you drink that whole bottle however, it's worth noting that the same article also said that those who have more than four drinks a day "increased their risk of being obese by 46 percent." So stick with one or two glasses at most. A glass of wine with dinner is not just civilized... it's good for your diet!
