I lost weight accidentally!

by Robert

I have read various times that alcohol is not fattening and may, in fact, help in weight loss. At least in my case, I have pretty convincing evidence that this is not true.

A year or so ago, I decided to cut back drastically on the alcohol I drink, as it seemed to have a much bigger effect than it had in the past. I was not overweight. I started by stopping drinking alcohol completely. After a few months, I noticed that my trousers seemed to be loose round the waist-band, but I felt fine and was not ill. I bought a weighing machine and discovered that I had dropped 10 kilos! Amazing!!. When I worked out the daily calories I had cut out by not drinking and multiplying this by the days that I had not drunk any alcohol, my weight loss came out exactly right, at 3,500 calories to the pound.
