Alcohol

The ethanol group will consume a 30% energy restriction diet that will also include ~2.5 standard drinks, or 35 grams of ethanol, administered as 80-proof distilled spirits (e.g. 80 proof gin, rum, vodka, whiskey, or tequila). In the United States, one "standard" drink contains roughly 14 grams of pure alcohol.

No Alcohol

This group will not consume alcohol. Thus 0 kcal/d will come from alcohol
