    Alcohol intake lowers the hunger-stimulating hormone grehlin according to a recent study.

    Grehlin is a hormone that stimulates appetite.

    Research has also found that alcohol stimulates appetite.

    Alcohol lowered grehlin by 14% after 30 minutes, 18% after 60 minutes

    However, this study found that alcohol lowered levels of grehlin by 13.9 percent after thirty minutes, and 17.5 percent after one hour.

    The amount of alcohol used was 0.25 grams of alcohol per pound of body weight.

    This would be approximately 1.1 ounces of alcohol for a person weighing 120 pounds, 1.4 ounces of alcohol for a person weighing 154 pounds, and 1.8 ounces for someone weighing 200 pounds.

    (One ounce equals approximately 28.4 grams.)

    Subjects: 8 normal-weight people

    This study was performed on 8 healthy non-obese people.

    This paper could explain why women who consume alcohol tend to weigh less

    Some studies have found that women who consume alcohol have lower body weights than women who do not drink, and the more alcohol they consume, the less they weigh. This does not tend to be the case with men, especially in men who drink beer.

    Other papers that I have seen tend to ignore these observations or try to explain them away, suggesting they are nonsense.

    The current paper, showing that alcohol lower grehlin, could explain why this is.
