A recent study at University College London found that how much you drink has less to do with the size of your pants than how much you drink at one time.
Apparently those test participants who consumed 80 grams of alcohol at one time at least once a month have waistlines 1/2 inch bigger than those drinking the same amount of alcohol spread out over 7 days.
According to WebMD (where I found this story), 80 grams of alcohol is like 1 bottle of wine, a 6-pack of beer or 6 shots.
Despite the extra inches, the binge drinkers weren’t found to weight any more than the moderate drinkers. They just retained more belly fat.
Having trouble losing that gut? Lay off the binge drinking.
