I have heard about it negatively affecting T levels, but I have also heard it might have a positive effect on them. Sorry I know I am being very vague. Just something I read on another post around here recently was along the lines of "On the one hand they may hurt T levels because of X action, but they may support them because of Y action".
I did not realize the alcohol itself was the source of most of the calories. I will have to look and see if I can figure out why the alcohol calories would be neccesarily stored as fat.
Can you elaborate on it stunting muscle growth?
I had just been thinking that post-workout might be the best place to stick a drink, if alcohol is to fit into a healthy lifter's menu at all. Intuitively, given the place alcohol has had in history, it would seem that surely it can fit in somewhere.
Thanks for the feedback.
