Red Wine: A Teacup

Some studies show that red wine, in moderation, can help ward off a host of medical conditions, including some cancers and heart disease, as well as signs of aging. You need to keep it to one glass a day if you’re a woman, though, and no more than two glasses a day if you’re a man. And remember: A serving of wine is just 4 ounces. “A visual comparison for 4 ounces of wine is a teacup, a small juice glass, or the size of your fist,” Begun says.
