Alcohol – is it fat, protein or carbohydrate?

Alcohol is not fat, protein or carbohydrate. It is yet another source of energy but not nutrients in any form.

“Alcohol supplies seven calories per gram, about halfway between fats and protein/carbohyrates. It is processed by the liver and turned into fat for storage,” says Barbara Ravage, author of Guide to Weight Loss.

Now, you know where beer bellies come from. 

I should limit my alcohol intake now.
