Yes alcohol has a calorie content, however in order to detoxify the alcohol it costs more calories than the actual alcohol molecule creates.
So if I drank everclear and didn't eat until i metabolized all of it, I should lose weight, as it is 95% alcohol? Id bother to look it up, but my life would be alot easier if you would just link me to these facts. Miller lite=only 3.2 carbs and 1 g protein btw.
