    Had 3 beers yesterday and some red wine.

    I went to a celebration of life for a person that I know. They had beer and dry red wine. It was Merlot.

    I had three Stella's and about 6 glasses of Red Wine. I felt that yesterday was a good time to treat myself to some drinks. We only live once and since I am very strict and follow a very clean diet and workout every single day, I allowed myself to relax and not worry about bodybuilding for a day.

    Will this effect my gains? If it does what will I notice tonight when I work out?

    Am I overreacting? I am working really hard at getting my core as strong as possible. Im in the gym 6 days per week ( 1 1/2 hours up to 2 hours per day) and will be in the gym every day this week so will the drinks even make an impact on my progress this week?

    u shouldent work out every day, u seem a bit obsessive. you drank one day....., do you really expect us to know how it will affect you? its one day. i would relax a bit. life is too short, just keep in moderation.

    I do it everyday far cardiovascular health. Work a different muscle group each day as well. So basically what you are telling me is that one day is not gonna make a difference.

    Well glad to hear that.

    Now since you are here, I would like your personal opinion. How often does a person have to drink to slow down protein synthesis where it would really affect their gains? Now I do understand how advanced they are in bodybuilding plays a significant role. For example, a person starting out will put on muscle easier than a guy who's been lifting for years. That means a person in the beginning can get results by not being as strict with their bodies. Correct?

    Also, how much/how often would they have to drink to put on added fat even though they are in the gym pretty much every day? Your thoughts please.

    In your opinion, how much fat can a person realistically gain overnight? A gram maybe?

    Im nuts I must admit. I just need someone to flat out say its a waste of time to worry about losing gains if I end up having some drinks on a rest day.

    I am worried that it could really mess things up.

    I want to build muscle and don't want a day of rest with a few beers or glasses of red wine to take away my progress. Is it even possible to really affect gains and cause fat gain that would keep you from forming a nice six pack if you worked out 6 days per week and had a few adult beverages on a Sunday Afternoon?

    I have read that if you drink, it will take away your gains and slow down the muscle building process. True?

    How much would you have to drink to stall muscle building?

    I really cant answer that question. I dont drink much anymore at all. I was not worried about about diet back in the day now I am.. I look at this way you can have cheat day... If you are too strict you will not not make it.

    Moderation is the word of the day.

    What defines moderation to you guys? Once a week?

    You should chill the f out, you're making me nervous just reading this. If you are a regular drinker it can impair protein synthesis. There are other factors at play that can contribute to it. What's concerning to me is you said you drank one night and you're worried about halting protein synthesis, it's like saying you at Wendy's today will I be fat tomorrow, think about it. Protein synthesis doesn't stop, your body is always building and repairing, at the musculoskeletal level it can impair growth because I believe alcohol blocks (brain fart, can't remember ) anyway, relax
