In brief: How about a lot less
Alcohol (etoh) empties rapidly from the stomach.
Alcohol dehydrogenase in the stomach lining contributes to etoh metabolism. Etoh can not be stored by the body & obligatory oxidation takes place predominantly in the liver. 1 gram etoh gives 7 empty calories that provide only energy with no nutritional value. Poor diet (protein-calorie, choline, folate (folic acid) deficiency) contributes to liver toxicity.
