Had one tonight. I dont drink anymore. Tonight was the first one in almost a year. I searched the web but cant find any facts on it. calories, fat, carbs etc...
Anyone know of the top of their head?

A hard lemonade should hardly have any effect on you man, don't sweat it. Hey I respect your decision not to drink, but you don't HAVE to be so strict about it...excessive drinking is bad for you, but one drink every once in a while is actually GOOD for your system I hear.

Alcohol is known to raise the HDL (good cholesterol) as well as increase the metabolism (in moderation, of course.)

A common myth is that alcohol causes a "beer belly" when in fact, we all know this is caused by eating too much and not exercising.

Just count it as a beer. I doubt it has much more than 150 total cals. Don't sweat it if your concerned for health reasons. And if your concerned for abstinence reasons. Well, don't sweat that either, just don't do it again.

I have read in different places that the typical "beer belly" is caused by hormonal imbalances, ie increased estrogen to testosterone ratio, that begins to develop in most men around the age of 40 or so.

I read that Alcohol can raise estrogen levels too.

I would say that most beer bellies are caused by the fact that when you consume beer, it is on top of most people's already 3000+ calorie diets, adding in another 2000 calories or so per day.

I agree that the excess calories from alcohol will attribute to fat gain, but I am referring to the "beer belly" that is common among older people. Most people just add fat all over but I am specifically referring to the people you see with a large amount of abdominal fat in relation to other parts of their body. I found this interesting and it relates the point I was trying to make earlier about decreased testosterone to estrogen ratio.

I read some articles on beer bellies. But I still think it mostly excess cals. You can drink and stay in shape. If your active enough. I drink alot and I am better shape then most people.

Also your blowing this way out of proportion. Why worry about a couple hundred cals so much. Unless your preparing for a contest I see no reason to be that strict. 1 drink in and of itself will not put you over the edge.

When I drink, I drink at LEAST 12, often up to 18-20. That's not a few hundred calories...

I hope this is only ocassional. VERY ocassional. Otherwise, calories are the least of your concerns.

At one point in my life I was drinking that much 4-5 times a week. Now I'll only have 3 or 4 when I go out. Maybe once every 2-3 weeks. Outside of that, nothing.

drew...last two quarters it was probably 3 times a week. Now I only try to drink once every two weeks or so, since I'm cutting. Next school year I'll probably be drinking at least 5-6 every night...and on the weekends, twice as much :eek: It'll be fun though :D

the problem with beer is the eating of unhealthy food that people eat along with it, and the next day of being lazy and not doing excercise...oh and all the empty calories...

i try to cut down my colllege level binge drinking to at most twice a week

The food you eat when drunk is what makes you fat. A frozen pizza at 3:00 am is not good for you. Since I got stricter about that it hasn't been to bad. Still every now and then I eat something I should. Eating bad food when your drunk is like sleeping with nasty women when your drunk, it seems like a good idea at the time.

When I was younger, the sure cure to over-drinking was to force myself up at 5AM for a 5+ mile run. Do that enough and you not only help to burn the calories, but you also don't want to drink so much anymore.
