why do they say that alcohol has hidden sugar in it?
I constantly see this idea referenced- that alcohol turns into sugar when your body breaks it down. But I have never found any source for that idea on the internet or anywhere else. Does someone have a link they know of?

Kreb's cycle will show how you get sugar out of alcohol
Glycolysis is the sequence of reactions that converts glucose into pyruvate with the concomitant production of a relatively small amount of ATP. Glycolysis can be carried out anerobically (in the absence of oxygen) and is thus an especially important pathway for organisms that can ferment sugars. For example, glycolysis is the pathway utilized by yeast to produce the alcohol found in beer. Glycolysis also serves as a source of raw materials for the synthesis of other compounds. For example, 3 phosphoglycerate can be converted into serine, while pyruvate can be aerobically degraded by the Krebs or TCA cycle to produce much larger amounts of ATP.

this is helpful- so in layman's terms how much sugar is deposited in the body after drinking a glass of wine for example?
