Stanford folks studied a bunch of bariatric surgery patients in their alcohol consumption. They discovered that their tolerance went down. I remember when I lost my 50lbs(a few years ago) I couldn't handle caffeine and gave up coffee drinks right away. I also noticed that I couldn't drink as much before getting tipsy.
