Empty calories thanks to wine with alcohol
Alcohol has all kinds of effects on your body. For example, you get a hangover due to dehydration. Moreover, alcohol contains mostly empty calories. This refers to calories that have no nutritional value. These calories add nothing to your diet, so the body burns it immediately. The calories you take in by other means, such as dining out, are left in your body this way. Once you ingest alcohol, the liver breaks it down into acetic acid. Because this is toxic to your body, your body is set up to start secreting this acid immediately. Only then does your body break down the calories you ingested earlier that day. Thus, the energy from acetic acid is burned before the energy from other nutrients. Since your body sees this energy as surplus, the products you ate earlier, such as carbohydrates, are turned into fat. Alcohol thus has adverse effects on weight loss.
