Alcohol & Protein in DUI Defense

There are conflicting sources as to whether it is most beneficial to consume predominantly protein and carbohydrates, as opposed to carbohydrates and fats, prior to consuming alcohol. Regardless of which source is accurate, it is better to eat a balanced meal, rather than specific foods, because a full stomach will reduce the rate of alcohol absorption into the bloodstream.

Best Time to Eat. There is a greater reduction in BAC levels when eating is involved. However, timing is crucial. Eating one-half hour before consuming alcohol has a greater impact on slowing alcohol absorption than a two-hour distance. As the period of time extends beyond two hours, the effect on alcohol absorption decreases; after four hours, previously consumed food has no effect on alcohol absorption. Thus, it is best to continuously snack while drinking.

Client Reviews
William Moore saves the day once again... I can’t thank him enough for helping me get my life back on track...You’ll be glad he’s on your defense team, I guarantee it. Eric Bailey
William is an amazing lawyer on the first day he took my case from a felony to a misdemeanor. He always answered my calls and text messages, never a problem. He was always the one in court not sending someone else, unlike my last lawyer. 10/10 would recommend. If I ever have any other problems, he will be the first person I call. Shane B.
