How much is too much?
Current thinking is that it is much better for your brain and your body to space your drinks out over the week rather than consuming everything in one sitting (binge drinking) and to have at least two nights off every week. Three, preferably. The question is how much is ok during these spaced out sessions? The main sticking point with ‘moderate’ drinking is the definition of it, whichs seems to be different wherever you look. Maybe the Department of Nutrition at Harvard made the safest play by calling moderate drinking ‘the point at which the health benefits of alcohol clearly outweigh the risks’? We think so. But how much is that exactly? Well, sadly, the research says it’s not a bottle of wine a day; it’s more like a small glass, say 125ml. So, make that bottle last a week, and you’ll be living at your peak!
