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.

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.
