Well maybe. Or at least you can have lots of fun drinking and damage limit its effects!
If you are low carbing, red or white wine (3-4g of carbs per glass), Champagne and Prosecco (only 1.5g of carbs a glass) are the best.
Likewise for intermittent fasting, 5:2 or of course 3:4 Dinner Only Diet, the dry wines are a mere 125 kCal in a generous glass, 570 kCal odd in a whole bottle and champers and Prosec just 98kCal in a glass.
Drinking wine the night before a weigh in might also help- from dehydration. That one just for weigh in emergencies.
Beer- many say not so good, especially for guys, oestrogenic effects could mean beer belly and moobs!
Of course the nanny state will remind us drinking too much is bad, kids. Not sure if the professor on FB stating a bottle of wine a day is fine is correct, but like his style.
And while your body burns the alcohol calories off it can’t burn fat at the same time. But I am sure you can find a happy balance, right?
