While alcohol does get processed ahead carbs, fats and protein, this is largely irrelevant in terms of weight loss.
What matters for weight loss is the overall balance between calories burned and calories consumed over the entire 24 hour day. The body has several different energy systems, and where energy is coming from at any particular moment is irrelevant - over the entire day things will balance out.
Alcohol certainly has calories, and will form part of your overall intake. But going to the gym will burn off those calories, regardless of where the energy is actually coming from.
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
