Alcohol and Keto

Here's an interesting article from MDA that details the effects of alcohol on ketosis (fat burning).

Your thoughts? Comments?

In view of the fact that glucose and alcohol are to a certain extent metabolically interchangeable I find it quite plausible that alcohol can interrupt the use of ketones as fuel. So not much news here as far as I am concerned, apart from the fact that alcohol provides us with so-called 'empty calories' and is therefore to be avoided. In spite of all this I will still drink the occasional glass of vino. Curious to know what others have to say about the subject.
