One serving of an alcoholic beverage is the amount which provides approximately 12 grams of alcohol.

Alcohol should be limited to 1 serving for women and no more than 2 servings for men on days it is consumed. Daily consumption is not recommended. During pregnancy alcohol should be strictly avoided. Alcohol is not a nutrient but it does provide calories. Its effect on metabolism is to increase fat storage. Excess weight gain is a common side effect of too much alcohol consumption. Alcohol excess can also effect fertility.
