    Not what I was expecting, but is there a lesson there? This happen to anyone else? I thought it might go down since booze has so many calories.

    Drinking what Beer? I read a book a long time ago and in it stated that the brewerÂ’s yeast in beer reverses the metabolism in most people...so if it was fast, it would slow it down and vice versa.

    You've probably replaced those empty calories with something healthy.

    Always a mistake.

    I've never quit drinking.
    Now I've got another reason not to.

    You're probably just getting dehydrated, start drinking more water. Yeah, booze has a lot of calories in it but it also has alcohol that the body wants to get rid of as fast as possible by "voiding" (Peeing). But in doing so you also lose the water you need so just replace it with more tap or bottled water.
