  • Chronic consumption of substantial amounts of alcohol is not associated with the expected effect on body weight. Isocaloric substitution ofcarbohydrates by ethanol results in weight loss, and addition of ethanol to an otherwise normal diet does not produce the expected weight gain. This energy deficit cannot be explained by maldigestion or malabsorption but has been attributed to induction of the microsomal ethanol oxidizing system (a metabolic pathway that oxidizes ethanol without associated… CONTINUE READING
