    Alcohol stops fat burning until its ALL cleared from your system. Save it for refeeds.

    Yep...a whole lot of rec drugs that are a lot better for your body and liver if you choose to partake. And for the occasional glass, stopping fat burning for 1 of twenty four hours (about the time necessary to clear 1 drink) is not too horrible.

    Probably a dumb question, but if Alchohol slows your metabolism, couldn't that be advantageous right before bedtime to delay evening catabolism?

    I had thought about that before...like when I would go out partyin with the friends thinking that since you wouldn't be eating anything for hours it might help slightly (just having a few). But I think thats really overthinking the situation. IT does reduce quality sleep, lowers test levels, and screws with the liver. If you want to have fun...be responsible and find a few other rec drugs that are better...hint hint.

    Wine is very good for you and has its place in moderation.

    Not if your looking to get shredded


    Dieting in general isn't healthy but your doing it!

    I knew it, I just knew it!! Noo, you can't let us be, can you?! Bobo has to come in and play the evil clown, taking away all of our goodies, all of our possible fun while dieting. I just want to let you know I'm not talking to you anymore.

    Does that mean that we don't need to add 4ad to our 1-test, if we drink a glass of red wine (which is better than white) a day ? LOL

    Now wonder, I'm more bloated on my t1-pro .

    PEACE
