    Have you guys lost weight on paleo? Could it simply be a result of lower body mass?

    And another thought: I think I remember reading that a lot of foods naturally ferment into a small amount of alcohol during digestion. Perhaps grains are a major source? If so, cutting them out would reduce your exposure and eventually tolerance? Just an idea...

      In periods where I have been VLC I'll get intoxicated more quickly and get killer hangovers from just a few drinks (2-3).
      When I eat more carbs, I can tolerate more alcohol, and I generally don't get hangovers.

        There is some evidence that people with NASH got it exactly because their gut bacteria creates more alcohol than people who don't get NASH*.... So NASH is more non-oral than non-alcohol. My guess is that clearing out the grains and carbs does lower the bacteria created alcohol... But my guess is that this is why I get sober faster.

        *And some other biological susceptibility- people tend to think alcoholism = liver disease but it doesn't, about 1/8 of alcoholics get liver disease, same ratio as people with other risk factors like obesity.

          Noticed this as well. I'm a significantly cheaper date since going primal.
