Do you need to give up drinking alcohol to lose weight?
A subject of much debate over the years, the answer is…not necessarily. Alcohol is full of “empty” calories, calories without any other nutritional value. That said, research continues to show that light to moderate daily alcohol intake (2 drinks for men, 1 drink for women) has no impact on weight or waist circumference. Drinking alcohol may actually help promote good health in other ways. However, binge or heavy drinking is linked to weight gain and a host of other health issues. What you drink (wine, beer, spirits) may also make a difference.
