Moderate Drinking Helps Keep the Weight Off

Apparently drinking doesn’t have to lead to a beer belly!  A recent study finds moderate drinkers gain less weight over time than heavy drinkers and people who don’t drink at all.  Moderate means like 2 drinks a day for a guy or one drink a day for a gal.  Scientists are still trying to figure out why this is true, but say it could be because when you drink, your heart rate goes up, which burns more calories.  Still, researchers say you shouldn’t take up drinking as a weight loss diet.
