    Say, for example, that you drank nothing but vodka and water for a month, you would not starve to death?
    Hmm, that sounds like a great plan! 2000 calories per day of vodka, unlimited water, and a daily multi. We'll also allow for unlimited black coffee and aspirin.

    Let us know how it goes, you might have the answer to the 'next wave' of paleo! It is one solution to those annoying "liver issues" - just kill the damn thing off. - actually, destroying your liver might help one to lose weight, too - that's a big old organ.
    If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/

      I know that for me, eliminating alcohol is required to drop fat. Even drinking a couple of glasses twice a week is enough to halt any progress.

      I'm giving my liver/metabolism 7 weeks alcohol free and so far I can already see a difference.

        It will still take a bit more than a month to starve together.
        My guess is that vodka doesn't have any amino acids nor fat.
        Are there any alcoholic drinks with fat? Good heavy beers might provide some aminos but don't know how to get the fats from alcoholic drinks....

          I'm finding the same thing. I'm doing much better having traded in my occasional evening glass of wine for a kombucha. And, I think you're right. It is not so much about the extra carbs/calories in alcohol as it is about making your liver work overtime to process it out thereby taking the liver's time and effort away from metabolizing other food.

            I made bacon vodka... it must have had some fat.
