Patients often ask about alcohol. When alcohol arrives in the body if the insulin level is low, the alcohol is burned to carbon dioxide. On the other hand when alcohol finds the insulin high, the alcohol is stored as fat. So alcohol makes fat people gain weight, but does not make skinny people gain. It’s not fair I know, but fairness is a human ideal, not a divine one.
