Drinking alcohol now and then isn’t bad for you, is it?

A few months ago I received a book called “The Two Martini Diet” (Authorhouse, 2008), in which Jerry Sorlucco documents his success at losing more than 100 pounds without forgoing his daily cocktails. He doesn’t break new diet-book ground: Sorlucco follows well-established practices such as controlling portion sizes, eating plenty of fruits and vegetables, and managing his calorie intake and expenditure to accommodate those drinks. I’ve kept the book on my desk because I’m intrigued by the interplay between healthful eating and alcohol consumption. Is it really possible, I’ve wondered, to incorporate alcoholic beverages into a healthful diet and lifestyle, or are those of us who hope it is possible just fooling ourselves?
