    As women catch up with men in the drinking stakes, their waistlines are also catching up with the beer belly, according to health experts.<br />
    <br />
    An English dietitian has given the apple-shaped body type a new name– the wineglass–due to the love of the drink.<br />
    <br />
    Jacqui Lowdon, from the British Dietetic Association, said it was the result of image-conscious women exercising to keep fit, and yet neglecting to cut back their alcohol intake.<br />

    Ahh Yes Dave,
    But, when the modern women goes out for a night on the turps,
    often it is sugar laden RTD’s (Ready To Drink spirits mixes) that they go for.
    The idea of "biggest bang for the buck" is what rules with these women.

    My partner is an Ambulance Officer over here, every weekend she is charged with the task of cleaning these Office Assistants, Business Executives and Magazine Editors off the pavement outside a Trendy club, after they have either got into a cat-fight, or thrown up on themselves or have simply passed out, due to excess alcohol intake.

    There is a lot to be said about self-control, men here got the message back in the early 1990’s about excess drinking, myself included, women can’t have been listening.

    Drink at home with a bunch of friends and a hot BBQ and a few beers.
    The best night is the one you remember fondly.
