    Its all about the same calorie or carb wise (liquor). Mix with some non calorie mixers. Whatever you prefer. I'd say this is a better option than beer.

    You already know its going to hurt your gains, so I won't speak to that. Just keep it in moderation. Hydrate well before and after. Popping a multi before bed and some water will work wonders tommorrow.

    You'll take a lower carb and cal hit if you stick to liquor, particularly clear liquor, but then you may also be inclined to drink more actual alcohol, which is worse for you than getting the excess calories, but I tend to think liquor with a low-cal mixer is probably the best way to go. Have fun!

    I'm calling it right now that somebody's going to chime in and say "Neither!" Good God we know. And yes, that was just some preemptive chewing out for the prudish among us.

    In my opinion, those who can't put off the social drinking completely (ME!), liquor with diet soda is the better choice. You tend to drink more beers (8+) compared to a few mixed drinks. Then again, I think those should be limited to begin with.

    Drink red wine . It is the only alcohol that does not suppress"T" levels.

    I'd like to know the reasoning behind that, because I know I've heard it said before, but I fail to see why ethanol from one source wouldn't do the same thing as ethanol from another.

    I see it this way... Bulking drink beer... Cutting Drink Licks

    The problem with liquor is some people can't take it without mixing or chasing and you end up having like a full pop or w/e you chase with so if you can do it without chasing grab the white rum... Though i find i get way too hammered when i drink hard licks and also i find you actually get a hangover i dont really get hangovers from drinking i just don't sleep very long when im drunk for some reason so im tired and some times still drunk the next day
    Legalize it and I will advertise it!

    Odd. Alcohol tends to dehydrate most people. After a night of drinking I look cut as hell, despite probably having SLIGHTLY more bf on me.

    my calorie counter says:

    30ml of barcardi, bourbon, rum, scotch etc w/ diet coke is about 70cal.
    spirits have alcohol content of 40% roughly.

    a can 375 ml of full strength beer is 140 cal
    low alcohol about 62 cal
    alcohol content of about 1-10% (depends on brand)

    3/4 can beer /about 30 ml spirit = 10 grams alcohol

    So it depends on how many you drink but beer has more calories per serving this way with same amount of alcohol.
