    alcoholic beverages

    What would be the best choice for an alcoholic beverage.... beer, liquor, or wine?? I have heard beer and liquor are high in calories but dry wine only contains like 40 calories per 4 ounces???????????

    red wine is good for the heart (in moderation) I'd go with that. But unless you are seriously cutting for a show or something 3 drinks of anything isn't going to hurt you really.

    Depends on your goals, bro. If your talking a cheat day every blue moon I guess I would say Bacardi and Diet Coke...no carbs....but, IMO at least, it can't go without saying, excessive binge drinking is way too hard on your body to not negatively affect your training.

    1 glass of wine, 1 beer, or 1 shot of liquor are all healthy to consume daily. The key word here is one.
    I prefer Scoth on the motherfvcking rocks when i'm out drinking. And beer when i'm out to dinner. Wine is for girls.

    as long as your not on cycle, go for it. persoanlly i like my drinks on the rocks to avioid any sugar or hidden calories. make sure you drink plenty of water. i would stay away from consuming a lot of beer cause that shit stacks that fat on, atleast for me it does.

    "Alcohol use is associated with low testosterone and altered levels of additional reproductive hormones."

    Low testosterone , weak in the gym.

    "Continued, excessive use of alcohol can damage the liver is various ways including the development of a fatty liver."


    "The presence of alcohol impairs the absorption of essential nutrients because it can damage the lining of the small intestine and the stomach where most nutrients are digested. Alcohol also requires some vitamins in its metabolism, and it interferes with the absorption and storage of some specific vitamins."

    I.E.: No PROTEIN synthesis

    "Alcohol can impair sexual function, even though it may increase your interest in sexual activity."

    Just say NO!

    Really doesn't matter too much about the carbs, that just the icing on the cake. The real killer is the alcohol.

    but a glass of wine (A GLASS) or an oz of liquor will have have ZERO effect on your training, and is probably pretty comparable to a massage for your mind......getting wasted should not be an option, but cutting or bulking, have some wine with your final meal..........
