​In the “who the heck thinks up these studies” department, researchers from Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston found that women (sorry guys) who drink moderately, especially red wine, have a lower incidence of obesity and weight gain.

Ladies, you may ask, what is considered “moderate”? As defined by the study, no more than two drinks in one day.

A serving of wine is 5 ounces, beer is 12 ounces and liquor is 1.5 ounces, but if you really want to stay thin, stay with the Cabernet… We’ll drink to that!
