It would be great to drink all the beer you want and not have any of the effects. Although getting some of those effects often will be a good reason for drinking it. Drinking a few beerscan be very relaxing but also give you a nice little buzz sometimes. However, it may also give you some negative effects like help in making you fat.
Certainly, a couple of drinks during the weekend or for some type of infrequent special occasion most likely won’t affect your overall fat one way or another. Of course, this really is assumes that you do some exercise once in a while. If you are trying to lose weight, these few beersmay have some type of impact but not anything major. Still, any choices you make regarding drinking or eating will either help or hurt you every time.
Obviously, having the ability to enjoy life may include having a few drinks with your friends or family once in a while. I certainly cannot hold that against you? You really need to balance your life to get some enjoyment every once in a while.
However, drinking more than a few drinks of beer or alcohol everyday could be a great deterrent from keeping your current weight and/or reducing it. It’s hard to avoid consuming a couple 150 calorie beers every day without it affecting your fat content. Most people who do this don’t have the necessary bodily activity to burn off all these calories daily. Furthermore, these calories don’t have a lot of nutritional content.
Let’s look at just how many calories you could consume by having a couple beers everyday for a whole year. Two beers every day allow you to consume 300 extra calories everyday. This amounts to a total of 2100 every week. Extend this further to get a years amount of almost 110000 calories. This will actually come out to be around 31 pounds of fat gained annually. For most people, this will be rather difficult to lose.
Beer and alcohol helps prevent the burning of fat (using fat for the body’s energy). When person consuming it metabolizes the alcohol, the process assists in preventing him or her from appropriately metabolizing fat.
Think of the calories inside beer as no more than empty calories that actually take the room of calories you should have in their place. Although there might be some nutritional value inside, it is minimal. It will be much better to have some good food value calories that help your body instead of hurt.
Whether you are attempting to lose weight or not, drinking too much beer or alcohol will be self-defeating. It might be okay to drink a few during the weekend. A few means maybe one or two but not much more than that. Remember that whenever you’re taking in drinks or food, except for water, you’ll be ingesting calories. They don’t have to be fat calories to become fat in your body.
If you look at almost anyone that drinks a lot of beer everyday, you’ll see that on average many of them gain a lot of their fat in their stomach. Most experts see this generating fat around the mid-section as very problematic for overall health. They say it is a symptom of possible future heart disease.
So the next time you think about having more than one or two beers during the week, you might want to think differently. Instead of developing a craving for drinking down a beer, you might want to start trying something a little more healthy like eating fruit or vegetables. It might sound funny to tell someone that normally likes to drink beer to instead eat something like an apple, but if you really try, you’re bound to find some nutritionally sound food that will satisfy you.
