Just don't do that all the time if it doesn't fit into your plan.

Now, go forth. Eat and lift.
yeah to be honest the drinking bothers me more than the eating in a purely health sense, but I don't want to get crazy about it. I figure once in a blue moon when I see a couple of my old buys from high school it's justifiable. Got to keep a balance between work and play

hormonal effects from drinking are only if you're like, drinking super excessively. go out and have fun.

Worth a read: http://www.leangains.com/2010/07/truth-about-alcohol-fat-loss-and-muscle.html

When I was tracking calories i had "lifting day calories" vs. "rest day calories". I ate an extra 500 cals on lifting days.

Connected on LinkedIn to a PT that I used to use back when I was clueless. She just started a discussion asking about a nurse client that has trouble getting food in while working. Some of her trainer buddies' responses are lulzy:
Quote:
She needs to change her attitude about eating at work, so that she doesn't end up binging when she gets home. She is a nurse, so you may want to appeal to her with information about basic nutritional science she may not be aware of.
During an 8-hour shift she probably should consume a full meal in addition to plenty of healthy snacks.

As we all know the body's reaction to not being fueled properly is to slow metabolic processes so that the body runs on less calories. This will result in her body holding onto fat and metabolizing muscle. When she binges in this state she will store more calories as fat. She will continue to change her body composition in the wrong direction (less muscle, more fat) if she doesn't start eating regular nutritionally balanced meals.

She may not be able to control her work/ sleep schedule, but she can control her eating.
Processed foods and supplements are not the answer unless it is the only way to get her to eat due to time/convenience concerns. In this case steer her towards healthy options.

And for gods sake absolutely don't let her eat based on a low-carb/no-carb diet, or fasting! Unless you want to get Uber-fat and have greater weight control issues in the long term. She needs all the carbs she can get running around on a long shift for both her body and her brain!

Focus on getting her to eat; when she begins to have the energy to exercise, you can start to think about shaving 250 calories a day from her diet for weight loss if she needs it. If she exercises in the state she's in right now she probably will cannibalize her own muscles. She needs to EAT!

If you're able to fix the eating problem get her on a resistance training regimen so that she can build some muscle and raise her resting metabolic rate.

Man, just drink, have a few beers and don't get plastered all the time.

Some of you guys really like to over think very minute things.

I used IF to cut about 15 lbs while injured last summer. Maintenence on workout days, -20% TDEE on rest days. RPT for my workout.

Wouldn't mind losing the 5 lbs i've gained back + a little more to to get TK shredded but I'm more focused on being active/physical therapy/maintaining what i've got/building back my legs (I lost a lot of weight there because I could only do iso leg work with the injury).

When I was wearing bodybugg, my workouts would burn about 350 calories in a 1 hour weight lifting session.

I'd imagine the calories spent sitting in front of a computer for an hour wouldn't be much less than that.

I never sweat those epic cheat meals. My training is always in check so I figure its my body saying yo bro feed me some caloric heavy nasty shit so I can recover quicker.

Yea is it counting total activity or just activity above base calories (how would it even know your base calories)
