    Beer is evil

    Last month I decided to cut beer out of my diet in preperation for an upcoming team Duathlon. I have not been riding any more miles or doing any more exercising than usual. My diet has also remained exactly the same. In 4 weeks, I have lost 10 pounds.

    I am with you OP. If I cut out beer I drop 10 pounds in a month and a half. If I replace it with wine I only lose 5.

    I miss it though. Damn Microbrews and their highly caloric nectar!!

    Yeah, I did love my beer. I really don't miss it though. The results outweigh any cravings for a beer.

    just highlights the fact that most people with weight to lose are only usually out of balance by about 100 calories a day. One (good) beer is going to be more than that.

    yeah, I can't understand how some people can drink quarts of beer on a regular basis. don't they see what going on in the mid-section?

    Ben Franklin did not believe in god and this quote is making fun of the rest of us for believing in god...

    Agreed. Research shows that beer hydrates better than water!

    I love beer and exercise hard so I can keep drinking it without looking like I do. I'd sooner give up ice cream.

    That's odd ... I always understood he was a Deist as an adult; while he did not participate in organized religion, his belief in God was fundamental to his beliefs/actions.

    Not that I care one way or the other.
