Impact of wine on training
 
I am aware that beer and other alcohols have a
very detrimental effect on the body with regards
to weight training.

Does the same hold true for wine?

This is purely from a training perspective, not scientific. but a member from my gym in AMAZING natural body building shape reckons if he has to drink he always makes it wine/champagne. Reckons he bounces back quicker and doesnt suffer bloating compared to beer and what not.

The olden day way of cutting up was to drink wine precontest as a diuretic aid.. however wine for normal training is basically an excuse to drink.. the only useful part is reversterol in the wine which is a grape extract and these days can be bought seperatly.. the only real reason to drink if do weightlifting is because you dont want to give it up

As with many things, in moderation. A glass of wine occasionally isn't going to hurt you.

Our bodies to not store alcohol sugar as fat. So from a fat cutting aspect, its the other calories that you worry about. I remember once calculating roughly that Wine stores about twice the fat of Liquor, and beer stores twice the amount of wine. Obviously light beer is better than dark. And be careful of those high calorie mixers.

And even though alcohol sugar is not stored as fat, they do get metabolized, and therefore displace the metabolism of other sugars in your system than may be stored as fat.

Also I find drinking leading to lowered inhibitions which could let one slip in their diet.

So if you are really serious, then just quit drinking, or moderate it; as others say in this thread.

Correct me if Im wrong, but what I remember from reading was that Alcohol was the first thing the body will metabolize. Even before Carbohydrates. When you drink a ton of alcohol, of course this is metabolized first and carbs/proteins/fats sit in your system.

From my view point, its really the snacking and eating after all the drinking that wrecks havoc on the body. I've quit drinking all together to really tighten up, but when I did drink, I'd drink a few and be sure to just have a protein shake w/ water before bed. Never really had any negative effects on my training.

Men's Health recently stated that a glass of wine has the "Best combo of antioxidant activity and heart-healthy protective effects".

However, this Mayo Clinic article, which is much more comprehensive, states that all in all it's still alcohol and retains alcohol's detrimental effects just like beer/liquor.
It talks about many of the things mentioned in this thread:

Ultimately I agree with those that say to drink it every once in a while in moderation. What I learned at Uni was any type of alcohol contains 7 calories per gram, but aren't really nutritious, like fats, carbs, or protein.
