Stopping drinking made me lose?
I used to be a very heavy alcoholic for about 4 years. While I was drinking I kept very good size and shape. I worked and still lifted and looked good. I quick drinking and started focusing on a better lifestyle and lifting habits and have not seen incredible gains. Any ideas?

youre doing it wrong. youre supposed to drink 1oz rum per lb of lbm post workout to take advantage of that 30minute anabolic window
if youre dead set on no alcohol, then replace that with 5oz o'douls per lb of lbm post workout

Just don't go drink alcohol and then workout. You will make zero progress no matter how hard you work.

Maybe like when these bands quit drinking, and all of a sudden their music goes to ****. Seriously though congrats on quitting drinking, you're a better man than me. I've been known to put away a few.

I stay keto usually, but whenever I drink beer (usually vodka) I have very strong or PR lifts the next day

being sober >>>> being an alcoholic. some people just can't handle it and have to go all out numerous nights of the week, and that's no way to live, regardless of your strength/size.
but yeah, you've probably just got great genetics, and your body will use any calories it gets efficiently, so when you stopped drinking and eating healthier, you cut back on calories. just replace it with good, high calorie foods. luckily for you it sounds like you could eat just about whatever, whenever and your body will use it efficiently.
on a side note... when i'm hungover the LAST thing i want to do is workout, so i don't think i ever have.... although my friends dad used to do powerlifting in college and said his strongest lifts were the day after drinking... not sure how that works for everyone since alcohol is full of pretty useless calories and the notions of it being loaded with carbs is GREATLY exaggerated. i used to think all the calories in even light beer came from carbs... until i looked and say that 1 light beer has like 1% of your DV of carbs

Thanks to all, I like the different ideas. I wanna compete next month so I'm not drinking for the next few weeks regardless so we will see what I can do.
