Be Nice to Mr. Liver - David Robson - Alcohol's Effects On Body Fat. Can We Have It Both Ways?:

"Alcohol, whenever taken in, is the first fuel to burn. While that's going on, your body will not burn fat. This does not stop the weight loss, it simply postpones it, since the alcohol does not store as glycogen, and you immediately go back into ketosis/lipolysis after the alcohol is used up."

I love the fact that college students think that they are "living it up" right now by binge drinking.. Like our liver is just this regenerative organ that can be detoxified or something. We are doing permanent damage to it when we drink so much.

I do drink a lot on occasion, however you won't catch me chugging beers on a regular basis.
