Serge Storms: Training Log

That article and another that popped up when I searched alcohol on T-Nation seem to think you can drink in moderation without negative effects. I think they settled on .5g of alcohol per kg of body weight.

Another takeaway for me was that alcohol doesn’t necessarily cause you to store fat, but it prevents your body from using it as fuel because it’s too busy dealing with the alcohol. Your plan to limit fat intake while drinking is great, but if you’re on point for your total calories for the day then it might not matter so much.

On a final note, fat seems to absorb toxins and helps us stay on our feet. I’ve been told to consume fat if you’ve drank too much and you’re trying to recover before you succumb to the constant spinning room experience. It’s unconfirmed at this point.
