  • I don't disagree that drinking alcohol can inhibit weight loss, but to say there are NO nutritional benefits is clearly false. What about the studies showing that moderate drinking (1Xday) is beneficial to heart health? or the positive effects of moderate alcohol drinking on cholesterol or diabetes? The article was very one-sided, so any conclusions were hard to take seriously. - 7/16/2013 1:30:51 AM

    I actually have the opposite problem. I have lost 22 lbs since January 1, 2013 while drinking a few glasses of wine a night. I know that drinking will slowdown weight loss and has other side effects therefore I decided to quit drinking three weeks ago. Since then I have only lost 1 lb and my weight loss has slowed down. I am looking for a possible explanation and possible solution I might try. I don't want to start drinking again and I have not changed my diet plan outside of not drinking. Can anyone help me? - 4/3/2013 4:02:19 PM

    Alcohol will stop the burning of all other fats for a period up to 16 hours or longer. A swiss study 25 years ago publishing in the NEJM based on research where they hooked up the people after drinking to masks and monitored thier expiated gas levels indicated that they were burning the alcohol first not anything else. IT all makes sense It is cleaner and more available than everything else and needs no conversion.

    Alcoholism Fetuses subjected to large excessive drinking by their mothers while still in the uterus require considerably more tests to habituate and also exhibit a better variation in test efficiency, a new medical research has revealed.... - 2/1/2013 3:35:36 AM
  • So it sounds like the reason I'm unable to lose my stubborn belly fat is probably because I drink too much. I have a habit of having a rum and diet pepsi every night (or two) and I've known for a long time that i need to break that habit. Maybe after reading this article I'll be able to cut back and finally lose this fat that has deposited all around mu midsection. - 1/28/2013 9:37:39 PM

    Is there a citation/source for this information:

    "When the body is focused on processing alcohol, it is not able to properly break down foods containing carbohydrates and fat. Therefore, these calories are converted into body fat and are carried away for permanent storage on your body."

    This part doesn't make sense to me since the body must fully digest food and break it down before it can be stored as fat. I would love to see a reference to the scientific research. Thanks! - 12/26/2012 6:18:06 PM

    ok this really doesnt help me much ..yes we should drink we know , but people like to socialize , so how do we minimize calories while still being able to mingle and have a few ? - 11/28/2012 1:02:07 PM

    This article is 100% spot on. I don't drink very often, but, when I do go out for a "girls night" I absolutely, run into every one of these problems with drinking. And the next day, in order to try to "cure" the hangover, I tend to eat not so healthy in order to ease the hangover. Which of course never happens. Thank you for the insight and article. - 10/15/2012 1:55:27 PM
  • Phew! I'm glad I don't drink atall! - 10/14/2012 1:22:18 AM
