Any advice or philosophy for alcohol consumption?
As a twenty something, I've manage to live a very healthy lifestyle Monday-Friday. However, the weekends tend to involve drinking with friends, which is hard to give up. I can't help but imagine that I would achieve "six pack abs" if not for my appreciation for beer and friendship. Thoughts? Realistic practices?by: evanjlevy
Best bet to get the six pack is to drop the booze, I think.
However, I've found that drinks like gin/vodka/tequila are better when you are trying to thin out. My favorite is gin with seltzer and some lime juice.
As someone with an appreciation for good craft beer, it can be a real challenge to give it up. When I found out my favorite beer was more than 250 calories PER BEER, it became a little easier. Mostly I stick to clear beverages like vodka and soda water if I'm out drinking and I space them out by alternating between alcohol and just soda water and lime. No one can tell when my drink is alcoholic or not.
