The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    Is alcohol metabolism rate relative to food metabolism rate?

    IE is the skinny ass guy with the speedy metabolism going to metabolize his alcohol quicker and consequently sober up quicker?

    Not necessarily. The two are pretty much unrelated, and their only commonality is the word "metabolism".

    How fast your body processes different substances is dependent on too many other complicated factors. In other words, just because your body burns an assload of calories a lot faster, doesn't mean your liver is able to process alcohol faster.

    From what I understand he will burn the calories faster, but not the alcohol.

    But it should also take less alcohol for them to get drunk, so maybe they would sober up quicker then

    Never looked into it but I really doubt it. Different metabolic pathways. I'd think it mainly depends on the amount of alcohol dehydrogenase a person has.

    Not related. It really depends on the person but food metabolism rate is not related to alcohol metabolism.
