Riddle me this:

Eight men were given two drinks of vodka and sugar-free lemonade spaced 30 minutes apart. Each drink contained less than 90 calories.

...
Researchers found that for several hours after drinking the vodka, the whole body lipid oxidation (this is a measure of how much fat your body is burning) decreased by a massive 73%.


But then:

The body stops burning fat or even carbohydrates. It resorts to burning only alcohol until alcohol is completely depleted.


If they consumed such a small quantity of calories from the alcohol, how did they burn nothing but alcohol for "several hours"?

Does this conclusion strike anyone else as odd?
