    I don't drink, but I do believe your sanity is as important as anything else in training. that is why I still eat pizza.

    I have a glass of cabernet almost every night. Gave up beer awhile ago.
    I don't think having a couple of beers on the weekends will hurt either.

    200+ calories in every beer, 110 in a glass of red wine.

    you need to ask that question to someone who looks like you wanna look like not people you dont know. Awesome results require awesome sacrifices. What are your goals??

    actually I don't drink anymore. I've only ever really drank wine and that usually would be with my surf n turf meals--yummy. I 'ld have to say I have an average of 3 glasses a month. I know that whatever isn't good for your body isn't going to help get you results so I am quite strict with my diet and only cheat when I really feel I have to.
    I was just asking in curiousity to see what people thought was a good amount that you could drink while still maintain your physiques.
    Thanks for the responses

    It all depends on what you drink . If your drinking Mudslides you'll have problems but i enjoy the occasional vodka tonic with no guilt . You gotta cut loose every once in a while .
    Good things come to those who WEIGHT !

    Actually, I believe regular Budweiser is around 160 calories and light is around 110.

    I have cabernet every weekend, doesn't seem to hurt.

    Prince how can you drink Budweiser, might as well drink piss. Just my opinion. Get a good German dopplebock, or a good stout. Something with some flavor.

    I hate when people say that, it's just what I prefer as do millions of other people.


    I do drink other (darker) beers once in awhile, Red's, Ale's, etc., although I do not really care for stouts they are too dark.

    I advise the jury to disregard I said it. Sorry Prince.
