diet & alcohol

Besides the fact that it is more satiating to eat your calories
rather than drink them, they are also mostly sugars, and
definitely empty calories. A study at the University at
Buffalo revealed that infrequent drinkers who splurged on
four or more drinks in one sitting have more belly fat than
those who consume only one a day. It seems that high quantities
of alcohol switch the body to fat-storing mode, particularly in the
abdomen. Fortunately, you can enjoy more than one drink-guilt-
free-by sticking to wine or spritzers. The same study found that
hard-alcohol drinkers had the highest risk of developing belly
bulge, whereas wine drinkers had the lowest.
