Over a four-year period, these factors had these effects on weight:
• An alcoholic drink a day, 0.41-pound increase.
• Watching an hour of TV a day, 0.31-pound increase.
• Recently quitting smoking, 5-pound increase.
• People who slept more or less than six to eight hours a night gained more weight.
None of the study participants were obese at the start, and their weight was measured every four years. On average, participants gained "nearly 17 pounds over the 20-year period."
