does alcohol make you gain weight?

21 Oct
Alcohol has empty(no nutritional value)calories and if you drink enough and don't burn them off then yes you will gain weight.

Yes, but some kinds more than others, for example, beer has a lot of calories and will make you fat real fast

It certainly can.  You don't burn off alcohol sugar, so if you consume it regularly,  don't be surprised if and when you start gaining weight.

No but it doesnt let your body perform its digestive functions as it should so it is linked with gaining weight just not directly

1. You consume a couple of alcoholic drinks or more.
2. Your liver metabolizes that into acetate.
3. Your body uses the acetate for fat as fuel.
As a result, your body will burn less fat.
Alcohol consumption causes:
1. A decrease in vitamin and mineral absorption: your liver is too busy converting alcohol to acetate to bother with the vitamins and minerals that you're consuming. Detoxification takes a while.
2. A decrease in protein synthesis of type II fibers. Muscle building is slowed down by at least 20%.
3. Dehydration. Alcohol is a diuretic.
4. A decreased quality of sleep. You might go to sleep more quickly, but your sleep will not be sound or long.
5. An increase in appetite.

I've been cutting down to a drink a week.

I actually used beer to gain weight. I drank a 6 pack a day for 2 months, then stopped and started working out. It put me right on target.
THANKS COORS!

26 Oct
No way! That is a heck of a way to gain weight. Must've been fun
26 Oct
It was, i suppose. I weighed 128 lbs at 6`. The downside is i am prone to headaches. So i had one almost every day for those 2 months.
27 Oct
Haha maybe I'll pick up drinking beer again. I've hit 160 led and can't gain anymore.
