Alcohol has no fat but at 7 k/cal per gram. Fat has 9 k/cal per gram
and carbs have 4 k/cal per gram.
Alcohol makes the blood sugar rise very quickly and stops your liver
from metabolising fat because the alcohol burns a hole in it so it
stops what it is doing and repairs itself.
Wine is can be good for you if taken in moderation but an average
bottle of wine can be about 15% VOL. Spirits are much higher in
volume at 40% but you only use small amounts.
