How do I get drunk and not get fat? - Page 3

post #31 of 76
I've heard that in addition to empty calories and carbs and such, alcohol actually decreases the body's ability to burn fat. Has anyone else heard this? I'd love to read an actual article about it rather than rumor.

This is actually wrong. Laziness leads you to $40 bottles. Excellent wine is easy to find for plenty less. You just have to know where to look and how to see past marketing.

somehow i think cuffthis knows his wine john. somehow i suspect that the marketing free $40 wines he drinks are the ones that hover around the price range of $80 with marketing....

I wasn't debating his wine knowledge. I was disagreeing with his point about cost, which is flat out incorrect.

But if you're still in college, racing cars, going to tractor pulls, Nascar, wearing Oakley's with suits, then okay drink up. Where's the keg, dude?

Oh come on, not REAL beer. Sorry but mainstream lager-derivatives are NOT beer in the true sense (swill really). Just avoid the typical rubbish. CHimay is good but there are better trappistes. Unfortunately Matt, those WILL be more fattenning (especially Trippel- three times the fermentation means three timnes the sugars to be broken in to alcohol). And there can be immense complexity in beer, btw. I'll have to agree though - wine or hard alcohol if you want quantity.

A bottle of Chateauneuf du Pape from Mont Olivet is 11 euros, Charvin must be like 15 or maybe 18 now. Sometime wine cannot get any better than this, like in 1990 for instance. See, I'm fairly competent in wines too http://www.tgjp.com !luc

Im a beer drinker. I like it the beer.

Beer maketh fatmatt.

So what can I switch to when I am out and about that will not cause weight gains? I know all alcohol is basically a bad thing for your weight, but what can I drink that will at least minimise the damage?


Here's what you do: Move to Puerto Rico, hang out with me on my terrace and drink Medalla all the time. It's only got 89 calories a can, but has a full flavor taste. I love the stuff.

The best way to drink and stay thin is to drink hard liquor - vodka, gin, whiskey, scotch, etc...

If you must drink beer, Miller Lite & Michelob Ultra have the least amount of carbs if I recall correctly from my drinking days. Amstel Light is pretty low in carbs and calories also.

I'd rather drink diet water.

Every day after work I'm picking up a large Japanese radish, slicing it up and eating it raw along with a pitcher of club soda with 2 jiggers of gin mixed in. I used to bake the radishes and sprinkle salt and pepper on it, but that's too much work. Eating it raw is great after a workout, and along with the pitcher of water, I'm in and out of the bathroom all evening. I guess the radish has a lot of water in it, too. Very low calorie homemade happy hour

Château Campuget Cuvée Prestige 2001 Nimes-Langeudoc

This dense wine possesses Côte Rôtie-like flavors of violets, crème de cassis, licorice, and spice box, medium to full body, a beautifully pure flavor profile, an enticing texture, and a long, 30-second finish. This terrific offering tastes like it should cost 2-3 times the price.

90 points (Wine Advocate)

Price: $14

for a nurseable drink in hot weather i go for a pint of white wine spritzer, soda not fucking lemonade, cheap dry white like pinot grigio or something and some ice. dry, quenching, at a 40:60 booze:soda mix about as alcoholic as beer, and i'm led to believe less fattening than beer.

thinking about it i don't know why it would be less fattening than beer....i bought it though.
