    Question Lagers and Beers






    Im curently trying to lower my body fat, but am very partial to Lager and Beer. Are they a big no no as far as diet is concerned. Im doing quite well at gutting the fat out of my foods, so i was just wondering about what i drink.

    Any answers??

    Thanks.

    I've heard that beer will raise your estrogen levels/lower test levels.
    I think Arnold was an avid beer drinker. Personally, I like to drink a few beers every once in a while. At times, I'll look leaner from drinking (the morning of). Probably because of the diuretic characteristics from the alcohol.
    Don't go overboard with anything.

    Just empty calories. One or two every now and then won't kill you, but not everyday.

    i believe because the alcohol dehydrates your body, so you area retaining less water

    I disagree with any beer bashing. What you need to do is compensate for your beer cals by eating a bit less or hitting cardio particularly hard on that particular day. If you can't work out hungover, you may have a problem.
    If sense were common, everyone would have it.

    Thanks for all your responses, im glad to hear that beer & lager arnt completely off the menu. As long as a couple of social drinks & maybe one piss up a week is acceptable, im a happy man. I tend to hit the cardio hard the day after a big one anyway.

    Cheers
    Chris

    Back in the 70's Dr. Alex Shulgin brought MDMA (Ecstasy) to parties and would hold up a little baggie of white powder he called "a low-calorie martini."

    If it were legal today I can just imagine the ads - "Perfect for low-carb diets!"
