The effect of alcohol on resting metabolic rate

  • Kathryn Rosenberg (a1) and J. V. G. A. Durnin (a1)
Abstract

1. There was a significant increase in oxygen consumption in ten women after small intakes of alcohol.

2. No significant difference was found between the average increase in metabolic rate over 3 h after an isoenergetic meal of food or of food plus alcohol. However, during the last half of the 3 h postprandial period, the increased O2 consumption was significantly greater after the meal including alcohol.

3. Possible explanations for the contradictory results in the literature are discussed.
