Can my fitness plan be compatible with beer?
Topic: Can my fitness plan be compatible with beer?
July 16, 2019 / By Belinda Question:
I'm a dude. I run 3 to 5 miles 6 days a week. I also lift 3 times a week. I weigh 158 pounds and and 6'0". I am in great shape. However, I am also 23 and I feel the need to enjoy my youth while I can so me and my friends go out and drink a lot. Sometime a lot, most of the time 3 or 4 beers. I probably drink 20 to 30 beers a week. I have a 6 pack but it isn't as visible as I would like it to be. I plan on tweaking my diet a little so I look good for the summer. Would I still be able to drink beer a decent amount to achieve desired results?

It really depends on what kind of beer you are drinking. A 12oz Budweiser has 145 calories. So you are taking in 2900-4350 calories a week in beer alone. One pound is 3500 calories.
I bet if you cut your beer consumption in half, at least, you'd get pretty close to what you are looking for.
Here's a chart for calorie content in some beers: http://www.beer100.com/beercalories.htm

sorry dude... soda sucks.. beer sucks... all alcohol and sugary beverages (processed) suck.. calories aren't the MAJOR issue but they are part of it... the big problem is.....
all sodas and alcoholic beverages are high in triglycerides...
these sugars are like lipids (like cholesterol) but not as hard.... the more triglycerides you intake the more the body will strore.... unlike cholesterol... triglycerides add on the pounds....
the larger your belly the more triglycerides you have...
if you are worried... stop intake alcohol and all sugary drinks and candies.... breads.. pastas......oils.... eggs.... dairy...
and get a blood test to see how high your triglycerides are.
i have a triglyceride issue.. i had to cut out 90% of my drinking.. i'm happier.. thinner.. not much acid reflux anymore...
you probably don't hydrate properly either... or eat right... more junk you take in the harder it is to keep your mid section down.
more fresh foods.. more whole foods like veggies, fruits... fresh juices... lesser processed junk.
no frozen.. no canned.. you want meat? get it from the butcher, fresh.. no more packaged junk or fast food.
cutting out the chemicals... also helps...
and being regular helps also.. higher triglycerides and constipation go hand in hand...
drink that water too....
and cut back on the alcohol... and junk.
Did you say you want to be fit? or just kinda fit?
Going out two times a week and having three or four beers is one thing, but 20 to 30? Dude, each beer is like eating half a loaf of bread! How would you fit THAT into your fitness program?
It might be 'better' health wise if you drank 20 - 30 shots of vodka a week!

Nope, sorry to say 1 or 2 at the most per week (not per day!) is all you can really have to have no ill effects on any fitness program.
I read several weight loss/fitness books and one said no more than one per week and another said no more than 2 per week.
So to be such a party pooper. lol

if you dont want to cut the number of beers down to half or even drop it at all, go to lower calorie or lite beers. then at least you'd be taking a step in the right direction

If you want to look good for the beach then get out the dumb bells. There are many lifts you can do. Curls, bench, shoulder press, flys, upright rows, lunges, split squats etc etc etc. Supplement with pushups, pullups and crunches or sit ups. Generally three sets of 10 to 15 reps with a minute of recovery between every other day or at least 3 x per week.
Diet, lose the chips and empty carbs. Eat a little protein at each meal and cut down on bread, pasta and potatoes. A protein shake drink half before your work out and the other half right after your workout. You will start to see results in 4 weeks.
