I struggle to stomach alcoholic beverages after eating a heavy meal so when I want to drink, the best I can manage is a light meal. But I am concerned what impact this might have. I know the more food you have in your stomach prior to drinking reduces the rate at which alcohol is absorbed into the bloodsteam but does eating less food before drinking have a worse impact on the liver? I am thinking because I can only manage a light meal, I will have less food in my stomach so alcohol will be absorbed faster and does it mean my liver can get more damaged as it has to work harder since alcohol is absorbed faster?
