Cut out beer, shots better?
Turns out no.
I have been trying to cut back on calories a bit, easiest was to quit drinking beer. (not much of a drinker to begin with though) I'm a big fan of whiskey though, I didn't think there would be much to it. To my surprise, a 1.5oz shot is 97 calories. I don't see how.

alcohol = calories
1. drink light beer
2. Tequila is the lowest calories per oz. (35?)
3. Stop drinking
4. Change your eating habits. Cut fat grams per day to 20 or less. Include more fresh fruits and veggies instead of candy or snack cakes.

Why are you trying to cut calories? For weight loss? If so, the problem is going to be with any type of alcohol. The body metabolizes it into sugar I believe which will not bode well for any type of weight-loss regimen."If anything worthwhile comes of this tragedy, it should be the realization by every citizen that often the only thing that stands between them and losing everything they hold dear... is the man wearing a badge." -- Ronald Reagan, in the wake of the deaths of 4 CHP troopers in the Newhall Incident, 1970

Love beer + Hate running = they cancel each other out.
So now I run five days a week on the treadmill and drink only one day a week. Usually better quality beer or sometimes some Gentleman Jack. You can't out exercise a bad diet. Minor adjustments have helped me a lot.

More of just a half-assed diet thing. Just trying to eat better in general, so I got to looking at the calories on some things. I'm good on "meal" eating, I usually cook a low fat meat and 2 for dinner, some non-sugary cereal for breakfast and a sandwich for lunch. My main problem is with snacking. Especially since I've gone on 3rd shift. The alochol thing started when I actually looked at how many calories are in a beer. Surprised the hell outta me and I thought that just some good sippin' whiskey would be better.
I did not know that the body turned alcohol to sugar.

Whiskey is high in congeners.....
Beer is in the middle
Vodka (Good Vodka, not Mr. Belvedere) had little
Granted not low in calories but a night of Vodka verses the others, you will feel better in the morning
Vodka is roughly 65-85 calories per oz.
I personally like my microbrew, high in flavor, calories and other things to make me feel not so nice the next day. But like anything, moderation will go a long way in losing weight, instead of a 6 pack, drink 3 really fastSomebody Please, what the hell is that smell?
