Shostie: Well, no. A glass of wine now and then isn't going to make you fat.But if you're downing a six pack of beer every night, you're gonna get fat.
alaric3: I read that as: Drinking is science.
oldwolf49: I get all my sciencey stuff from some online rag that quotes some idiot that didn't go to college but has opinions. Don't you??
machoprogrammer: It's calories in - calories out. That is it.
ReapTheChaos: Calories are calories, regardless of where they come from. You take in more than you burn, you gain weight. It's that simple.
vactech: It's funny how much resistance I get from people on this
max_pooper: Alcohol has more calories per gram than sugar or protien. If you are a heavy drinker you are either fat or you eat very little.Thermodynamics, how does it work?

cptjeff: vactech: It's funny how much resistance I get from people on thisThat would be because it's a gross oversimplification, and ignores that what type of food you put in affects how many calories you wind up burning, and that the chemical processes we use to break down food amazingly don't actually work exactly the same on every chemical structure on the planet.It's not that simple. The world is never that simple. Claiming that it is makes you look like a dumbass who can't process complexity.
meow said the dog: It does do the making of the mother of the submitter of this to appear as the less unattractive as the person. LAUGHTER OL THIS IS THE JOKINGS. Nothing will provide the beauty to the bigger person who did the vaginal firing out of the cervical cannon to submitter of this.
Enigmamf: max_pooper: Alcohol has more calories per gram than sugar or protien. If you are a heavy drinker you are either fat or you eat very little.While alcohol has 7 calories per gram, typically one consumes a diluted mixture, generally not more than 40%. A 40% ethanol/water mixture would have 3 calories per gram, less than are in carbohydrates or protein.
revrendjim: This is how people can starve to death on an all-protein diet regardless of how many calories they get.
vactech: Why is alcohol content not important? Do are bodies just burn up the alcohol better, or something?
revrendjim: That said, I drink a lot of beer and my waistline is expanding at an alarming rate.
vactech: machoprogrammer: It's calories in - calories out. That is it.Came here to say this. It's funny how much resistance I get from people on this; women who have suffered every diet fad known to man, dieticians that don't want their professions marginalized.Also, the calories come from the alcohol content. Light beers have less calories than the 5-8% varieties.
RookStar: Drinking does make me fat, or feel fat in a way. Not from the beer itself. But from all the damn pizza I eat. Or if I drink on an empty stomach cause and I feel bloated and get the beer shiats the next day.
revrendjim: Furthermore, some food calories require an expense of energy to turn them into a usable form (i.e. glucose). This is how people can starve to death on an all-protein diet regardless of how many calories they get.
