We all know that drinking too much can be one of the worse things you do to your physique: It deminishes testosterone production, makes you feel like shit the next day.... and of course, every gram of alcohol has 7 cals, wich is a lot, especially considering the amount of alcohol one is capable of drinking.
But I was wondering: How does the body handle alcohol? Does it just convert it into fat that is later stored in adipose tissue? Can it be used as a source of energy? Also, why is it that the body stops using fat as energy when alcohol is present?
