    Default Good idea; Bad idea. Post workout beer?

    No, I'm serious. This sounds like such a bad idea to me, because alcohol is catabolic, so it's not what I want to be feeding my muscles after a workout, right? Obviously it would accompany a good post workout meal. Along with lots of water and stuff. I've already had like 30-40oz of water in the 15 minutes I've been back from the gym.

    But sometimes a beer would just be soo good

    Default If you REALLY want one...

    ...go ahead and have one, but no more than one, and not all the time. (I'm a believer in moderation, not asceticism). Also, you can drink something like Guinness which has, I believe, the highest food value & lowest alcohol of any beer out there. It's also a good idea to have your beer/wine/whatever with dinner as food will blunt the impact of the booze.

    The carbs are really high in a beer and you're not going to get much nutritional value from it. (I bet that's a big surprise.)

    Of course, life is short... once in a while have a beer. (of course, half a can would be less damaging... but I know that's not gonna happen!) Just keep in mind that it's a once-in-a-while treat, and it will work against your workout. When you finally break down and have that beer, drink it slow and savor it. (It'll probably taste a whole lot better if you haven't had one in a while.)

    Now youre talking. First, how is beer catabolic? Catabolism is a cumulative process, not caused by the intake of beer!! People are so concerned about this catabolism thing, dont be!!

    I am 7% bodyfat and drink beer daily; b/c I love it!! My very good friend who is 4.5% bodyfat drinks 6 beers after each workout and usually continues this throught the night and posseses an amazing body. Its amazing how people drink, get cravings, eat like a pig on junk, then blame the fat gain on the beer. LOL. ))

    If you want a beer, by all means drink one, 2, hell drink 6 but DONT succumb to the cravings caused by the alcohol; however, if you follow the WD you wont have to "succumb" to anything but overeating.

    Default Mark... please explain...

    Can you please tell me how you can drink so much beer and it not interfere with your workout progress? Please explain in layman's terms for us idiots. I'm intrigued.

    Thanks.

    Crap science. They say that the beer drinkers show a "slightly better" hydration effect. WTf is slightly better? Also what is this hydration effect? Everything in the article is anecdotal, not science.

    No science to back the following statement up but...

    When I did a lot of long distance running (trained for it around 4 times a week) I often had beer after my longest runs (usually 10-15 kilometers) and I haven't found anything that gives me my energy back faster. Seriously.

    It's not exactly what I take after a regular strength session though, good food is more than enough for that IMO.
