The Latest Diet: Drink Beer! (No Problem!)

I feel like I’m always reading some new study about the best kind of alcohol to drink to help maintain your figure or even lose a few pounds. Last I remember, I was celebrating the study that found that red wine keeps you slim. But apparently that is no longer the case. The latest study done by the Campaign for Real Ale (I’m sure they have no vested interests) found that swapping your two glasses of red wine for one pint of beer could help you lose about 10 pounds a year. Why? Because beer has a lower alcohol content than wine. So it is lower in calories. In other news, a study done by me has proven that not drinking at all and exercising regularly will make you lose the most weight. Sigh. [The Sun]
