So a guy is trying to lose weight and is looking for ways to cut calories. While he doesn’t want to give up alcohol completely, he knows his weekend six-pack isn’t doing his gut any favors. The solution? He switches to liquor because beer, as everyone knows, is sky-high in calories because of all the carbs. Problem solved!
Sound familiar? Over the years, I have heard this one over and over again. In an effort to lose weight, dieters switch from ‘fattening’ beer to wine or hard alcohol, believing the latter options are more diet-friendly. But are they?
