Eat Better Food, Drink Crappier Beer
One of the most crucial methods for avoiding a beer gut is first understanding that these flesh-covered barrels of “you ain’t ever getting laid again,” are the result of a man’s entire diet – not just his beer consumption.
Even if you kick a beer habit and continue to eat pizza, nachos and every other variety of processed crap food available on planet, that nice side tattoo of the Virgin Mary that you got when you turned twenty-one is going to start looking like Kathleen Turner by the time you reach thirty-five.
Dietary experts say if a man drinks in moderation while also maintaining a healthy diet, as well as getting in a fair share of exercise, a few beers every once in a while will not make him look as if he swallowed the keg. But all of these components must be in place for the system to work. And if you are one of those guys who enjoys craft beer (200-500 calories per 12 ounce serving) as opposed to the domestics (100-150 calories), you might as well plan on quitting your job right now, building a home gym and paying some ruthless personal trainer to bust your balls everyday. Because that is what it is going to take to keep you as lean, mean and drunk as a man with no job can be.
Get WGW on Vodka Daily And Never Gain A Pound
Vodka is that one alcoholic beverage that you may have had an evil encounter with back in the day. Chances are too many shots of Dark Eyes put you face down on the bathroom floor, covered in puke and self-loathing on more than one occasion. It happens to the best of us. In fact, it is the violent repercussions that often stem from drinking vodka that leads most of us to almost exclusively being a beer man. But while this hellish liquor may not deserve it, any guy wanting to cut enough calories to prevent himself transforming into a sorry sack of flab in the future may want to consider giving vodka a second chance. It has fewer calories than beer (64 calories per 1.5-ounce shot), so there is none of this nonsense about trying “to limit consumption to two drinks.”
Cheers to that six pac you always wanted.
