    Liquid calories don't count.

    It's science.

    You just need to redefine working out. Those 12 oz curls when done with enough repetitions is a hell of a workout. How many people work out to the detail of working out their livers.

    I think I worry more about the alcohol intake than the calories. Calories can be burned.

    I've seen more talk in the past two years about this girly calorie nonsense showing me what a fad beer has become.

    By my calculations I had about 1,845 calories of beer alone on Easter. So... that explains a lot.

    next glass is an app that is based off of lab analysis and will tell you calories among other things

    I remember reading back in the day that you can take ABV x Ounces x 2.5 and that gives you a pretty good calorie count. Obviously not on the money, but very close. That's what I've been using.

    I'm going to flip it around and feel proud of myself for being only mildly overweight given those numbers.

    The depressing thought is really that I could apparently easily lose weight even while gorging on pizza, steak and chocolate if I was simply to stop drinking beer every night.

    Beer calories do add up, so I just try to balance out my eating a bit more. If I have 3-4 beers and take in 800-900 calories, I will try to eat about that much less throughout the day.

    So far my weight has remained the same, which is a good thing. Especially considering how much more beer I drink the past few months. I actually lose a few pounds since I started... lol

    I don't see this being a good think in the long run. You are taking nutritional caloric intake away, and replacing it with empty calories from beer.

    I only drink about twice (maybe three days) a week and I am a fairly big guy (6'6" and 250lbs) so replacing 800-1000 calories out of the 2500-3000 or so I eat daily is hardly a problem. I also eat a lot of good food and avoid fast food and most junk... So on the days I drink I try to eat a lot of vegetables and such... Spinach, steamed veggies, stir fry, grilled chicken, etc... Or if I happen to splurge at the brewery or bar or whatever and get pulled pork nachos or something, I will try to make up for it the day before and after :slight_smile:

    Beer isn't entirely empty calories. Or rather, the part with the calories are empty, but the rest of it is full of B complex vitamins.

    Previous attempts of mine to count calories have never worked. The logic works into a fallacy that weight loss is purely about net calories, and that burned calories are some kind of fixed constant so if your intake is lower than this constant you will automatically lose weight.

    That isn't how weight loss works, your body has different caloric needs on different days, and if you take in too few calories your body will burn fewer calories. If you give yourself a specific caloric allowance, then you're second guessing all your body's systems designed to regulate calorie intake. On some days you'll get too many calories and on other days you'll get too few.

    I tried calorie counting for months, was hungry all the time and didn't lose a pound. Then I decided, just maybe stop drinking coke and buying muffins at dunkin donuts and otherwise keep my diet exactly the same, and I lost 20 pounds immediately. Don't worry about counting beer calories. Just maybe reduce the number of situations in which you drink.

    I'm trying to get from 180 down to 165 so I decided to stop keeping beer at home and only drink when out with friends. Working so far. I don't have to worry about how much I drink on any particular day because I know I'm going to be drinking much less overall.

    I'd love an app for this honestly. Would be crazy to see the legendary calorie days especially when the 10-14% stouts are coming into play

    If this is even close to accurate, I am a calorie-burning super human. Thank you Lord.

    I've always thought beers should print their calorie count on the label just like non-alcoholic beverages. I doubt that chart is always accurate

    I like to believe there are no calories in beer and it´s all a scam from the water industry.

    I enjoy charts like these! Now I feel like getting a snap gym membership, so I can wear some skinny hipster jeans on the treadmill while my pot belly hangs over, and sidle along sipping from a 22oz bomber while watching the food network feed people deep fried pork belly... calories shmalories.... are there calories in beer?
