  • There are two ways of breaking down alcohol in the liver - one way (for people who drink average amounts of alcohol) is not energy cost-effective - ie you will gain energy from the alcohol consumed (do not forget that many alcoholic drinks are mixed with other drinks often adding calories from sugar), no matter your metabolism - no exact metabolic figures can be given as each person breaks down foods and drinks at different rates according to many factors. -the second way (for alcoholics) costs the body a bit more in calories burnt to break down the alcohol, but you will still derive calories from your mixer. Also, if your liver is operating in this way - you have got greater problems than your diet and weight concerns. Alcohol in moderation does have health benefits, but weight loss is not one of them.
