Alcohol itself is bad...Lowers test...Really depends on what you mean by heathly...
Between beer, red wine and vodka, beer is the worst because of sugar and carbs...Most vodkas contain 0 carbs and 0 sugar...Red wine contains nutrients from the grapes, but has carbs and sugar...Basically, Red Wine has more good things and bad things vs. vodka...A shot of vodka will usually contain 90-150 calories, red wine calorie count will vary greatly between brands, but one glass is usually the same calorie count as a shot of vodka...IMO, if your going to drink, go for vodka, but like I said, all alcohol is bad (UNhealthy)...

bacardi and diet coke.
btw if you're on cycle the alcohol affecting your test would be like comparing apples and oranges...its still not good for you at all, but dont' worry about it affecting your test lvls.

I usually drink vodka if i am going to drink. I also do this on my cheat day and no other time do i consume alcohol.
Alcohol does nothing for us in terms of our goals, i look at it as part of my cheat.

Alcohol does lower test production. And the only choice would be red wine one glass per day. All others including clear alcohols convert to sugar period.

Sugar does not lower test levels, however alcohol at 7kcals per gram indeed does.

vodka by itself is probably healthier of the choices. Unless your an alcoholic, usually you'll mix it with a fruit drink, especially at a restaurant or club, and most of the time, you just dont stop at one. The sugars add up, not to mention the overall calories that dont benefit you at all, and presto, you have an insulin spike that will last alllll nite. Coupled with late nite at the waffle house and you've pretty much blown a whole weeks worth of dieting. So if you have to drink, be a man, down the vodka straight!!!!
