July 4th weekend is upon us, and for a lot of us, that means barbecues and booze – which makes this new study so timely.

Seems there’s a reason we always want to eat everything in sight after we’ve had a few drinks: Alcohol causes the brain to be more sensitive to the smell of food, which, naturally, makes us crave it. And it seems that this phenomenon affects women more than men.

Great so not only is the booze packing on pounds for us ladies we now eat more then men when drinking.

Maybe the solution is plugging our nose?
