exactly why is alcohol so bad for bodybuilders and what effect does it have on the body. I realize the dehydration part. So is one every now and then bad also?

Alcohol itself robs the body of nutriants and minerals. Which are vital for muscle repair and recovery. It causes dehydration which in turn will cause muscle break down.

Now if when you say alcohol you mean Beer ...... well just look at how many calorie are in a beer.

It also suspends the beta-oxidation of fats in the liver (ie "fat burning") since the liver needs to redirect all of its energy to ridding itself of this cumalitive poison (alcohol)

So why is wine supposedly better than beer to drink, and as far as the calories...I need alot of them.

You don't wanna alot of fatty based calories. If you want alot of calories, good clen food is the answer. Stay away from Alcohol ... especially beer. tuttut

if your eating calories simply for calories then ... sure .... go and eat icecream all day. All you'll get is fat.

Quality food builds quality muscle.

calories are calories right....whereas it's the other ingredients that make the difference? Is this right? Isn't calories just energy any way you look at them?

No, there are 3 types of calories. Protein, carbohydrates, and fat. Balance them.
