Has anyone had a successful diet while not having to give up beer? 2017 I gained quite a bit of weight due to a more lax diet, more beer, and just trying to gain weight to powerlift. I got stronger but again, fatter. Right now I plan on doing a lower carb diet (not exactly keto but most of my fuel source will be fat) with some healthy carbs around training. I just want to know if having a beer or two every other day is going to make this fat loss journey pointless? You always hear about the metabolism thing with alcohol so I'm curious.
