Little is known about the role of alcohol in determining change in body weight.
In this paper, the authors examine the relation between alcohol intake and body weight in 7,230 US adults aged 25-74 years who participated in the First National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (1971-1975) and who were reweighed 10 years later (1982-1984).
Both cross-sectional and prospective analyses were adjusted for age, race, height, education, health status, smoking status, diet status, physical activity, and total nonalcoholic caloric intake.
At baseline, women who reported at least one drink per day weighed 2.3 kg less than nondrinkers (95% confidence interval (CI) - 0.4 to - 4.2).
