Could be the stuff that goes along with beer. The dozen wings, large fries, bag of Doritos or potato chips. Or the fact that middle age men can't have a 5000 calorie a day intake, like a physically active 18 year old. (X-Box does not count for physically active)

"You are drinking it in more quantities than wine or liquor, so you tend to have more caloric intake"

So they are not a myth then.  Good article.

"You are drinking it in more quantities than wine or liquor, so you tend to have more caloric intake," says Sohani. "You are talking about a difference between several hundred calories a night and a couple hundred." Follow the logic here

...

Several is more than a couple?

Uh, er, I'm not sure that alcohol is the main source of calories in beer.

In good beer, anyway.

I quit drinking (mostly beer) and lost over fifty pounds.

Was awful being fat.  Ankles hurt, knees hurt, back ached, easily out of breath, nope, nothing to recommend being fat.

WinoRhino: CowardlyLion: Hang on--there are people stupid enough to think that in the first place? Please tell me there's at least heavy overlap between such a group and truthers.

My sister-in-law believes that (not sure about the truther stuff, though.) She's always talking about how she "lost weight" but "not from where she wants to."  We tried to explain you can't lose weight from specific areas of the body but she insists she is somehow genetically predisposed to carrying extra weight in her face and stomach.


Well, she is.  Which is why she'll lose weight there last.

Came here to point that out, really misleading study. You need more beer to get drunk than you would need liquor, so it makes you fatter than other types of alcohol.
