I believe what he is saying is that when you drink, your body focuses on getting rid of the alcohol, so whatever you eat while drinking pretty much just gets stored and not used as fuel. but i have been known to be wrong on occasion

But you have to think of the fact that beer doesn't just contain alcohol. It also contains carbs and protein. Look up the reaction the the body uses to degrade alcohol. It takes more energy to perform than it yields so it actually "burns" calories. 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.
