Another point to keep in mind with the calorie counting: Appearently it
takes about 23/100 calories of carbohydrates to convert them into FAT on
your body. It takes only 3/100 calories to lay down fat (e.g. butter or
vegetable oil). I am sure the numbers are generalizations, i got them
from a recent issue of Longevity. So, regardless of the effects of
alcohol on your metabolizm, if you eat fatty food you are going to be
more prone to laying down fat.
