well some say its empty carbs and not to count it and just wanted a better opinion but thats good for me because i can drink a sh*t load of beer, energy drinks, and gatorade to help me get my daily carbs and calories

There are a lot better sources than those for extra calories.

u mean food though right, it's just a huge convinience to be able to drink your carbs and calories because its hard to put down more than 5 or 6 meals a day

"Empty" refers to calories with no nutrional value (ie vitamins, minerals, etc). I would suggest drinking dense protein shakes with milk, whey, oatmeal, powdered milk, eggs, fruit, etc. Basically put healthy things in a blender and drink.

By the way, I wouldn't suggest beer as a good way to get more calories.
