A new study from Spain has concluded the association between alcohol consumption and body weight may appear only with heavier drinkers, but light-to-moderate consumption may actually protect against weight gain.

The researchers have concluded that "the type of alcoholic beverage might play an important role in modifying the effect of alcohol consumption on weight gain," with more favorable effects generally seen among consumers of wine.

The overall conclusions of the authors is that it is currently unclear whether alcohol consumption is a risk factor for weight gain, but if so it appears to occur mainly among heavier drinkers.

They also state that "light-to-moderate alcohol intake, may be more likely to protect against, rather than promote, weight gain.
