I struggle to see the problem with this. I love beer and I drink copious amounts of it. I'd like to know how much less food I should consume to maintain a world-class supermodel figure.

Just so long as bottled water still informs me that it contains zero calories. I wouldn't want to get confused about water, after all.

Hmm, one a day for women, two for men, but how many for toddlers? The step-kid can handle three of those little airport bottles of Goldschlager before passing out cold. He'll usually out for at least 3 hours, which is more than enough time for the old lady and I to bang one out then get up to the 7/11 and back for some smokes.

I would be OK with this. ESPECIALLY if they were forced to list the alcohol content clearly as well. Seems that the only beers that actually list alcohol content prominently are Imperials that are a bit over the top(>8%).

Can we PUHLEEEZE work in an exemption for bottled water into this law? Im sick of seeing the "tits on a boar" listing on those bottles. If its 0% across the board, do we REALLY need to list it? how about a simpler substitute of "this product has absolutely no nutritional content whatsoever."?

/sorry Russian Imperial Stout I had an inkling you were around 10% ABV when I noticed my mouth was burning a bit due to the alcohol content.
//not that I minded as you were incredibly, INCREDIBLY tasty.

chitownmike: Meh, my x once pointed out that I regularly drank my 2000~2500 cals. That's why she's my ex

That's what your ex-liver said, also.

"And just as there are warnings on tobacco products, Waldrop said, the alcohol label should include safe consumption levels: one drink a day for women, two a day for men."

Only two drinks a day? If I wanted to drink that little I'd go to Sunday Mass.

dahmers love zombie: Mrs. Love Zombie and I used to frequent a bar back in college. The day bartender would not let us pay for drinks. He was so lonely there most of the time that he was happy for the company. He invented a drink that we dubbed the Hollering Orgasm (his name was Holler). It consisted of vodka, Kahlua, Baileys, Amaretto, Frangelico, and cream. We would have, oh, about five of those each, then go back to the dorms and schtup our little brains out for hours. Which was a good thing, since I figure each of those babies was around 800 calories.

/drunk story bro

Well, I hope you let him join in a few times, at least, considering how lonely he was and how he was providing you with free drinks.

Probably won't change my habits...the only fat calories that I count when drinking are the ones that waddle through the door on ladies night. And there are always far too many for my liking.

Pocket Ninja: I'm trying to imagine my response if someone with whom I was sharing drinks declined one because of caloric content.

This can be avoided by drinking exclusively MGD 64.

If there was one on that bottle of rum I finished this weekend, I may have drank more in moderation.
