    Beer or Whiskey






    I got into a conversation with a fitness friend about alcohol today and how I miss whiskey LOL. He informed me that people get fat off of beer, but drinking hard liquior like whiskey or tequila is fine for you diet wise. Ummmmm......that's not correct is it?
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain...

    Dehydration caused by alcohol would still occur whatever you drink i guess, which is also pretty damaging. Not to mention placing a load on your liver, kidneys etc.

    I'm not talking about becoming and alcoholic LOL, a drink every now and then. Right now I'm on a no carb diet....does whiskey count as a carb?

    Wow. good luck bud. I tried the no-carb thing and was waking up to night sweats, irritability and low energy. I thought I had a disease or something for a while. Whiskey contains sugar I believe, and does count as a carb.

    I actually feel better and I'm more energized on no carb diets. The only time I really feel crappy is during my carb up LOL. Thanks for your input in here!

    Awesome Jodi!!! But it should still be a no-no for someone going no carb though correct?

    For no carb it is fine but it's got an awful lot of empty calories and it halts fat burning.

    according to a website i just found
    per fl oz. vodka(smirnoff) has 19cals 0 carbs
    per fl oz. whiskey(JD's) has 79cals 0 carbs
    per fl oz. beer(budweiser) has 12cals 0.9g carbs

    so if you have one drink of whiskey your baggin 80cals (plus your mix...unless you do it straight up) one bottle of beer is 12.2oz which means you are takin in 146.4 calories and 11g of carbs.

    personally i can drink about 24 beer on a good night. And if im drining vodka maybe 20-22oz

    if you do the math that means im having about 400cals a night from the vodka. if i were to drink 24 beer it would equal over 3500 calories.

    this being said i only drink like this about once a month....or i try

    Yes, this is true. The liver can make ketones out of alcohol as sad as that seems

    No it is sad. It's not really promoting healthy lifestyle now is it?

    if you're going to drink then you might as well drink what ever the hell you like, because none of it is really conducive to bodybuilding and dieting.

    1 gram of alcohol is about 7.5 empty calories.

    this is true but i think for the common person that just wants to be "in good shape" alcohol is a part of life that you might not want to cut out.
    being 19 years old im not about to skip drinking with my friends because my bf isnt 8%. comes down to priorities, and for me
    were here for a good time, not a long time

    What about a couple of cases every weekend.... Think that will be conterproductive?

    Or maybe it is the couple of 26's of Crown on top of that, that is stalling my progress.

    Alcohol lowers your testosterone levels. So how could either really be that good? I guess 1 shot of teq or 1 glass of beer once in a while won't hurt nothing. Remember Beer has Sugar in it. So if it's a beer make it Mich ultra.

    But again like previously stated they all dehydrate you and affect your gains, I read somewhere that you should limit your drinking to like once a month
