Does beer make you fat?

Hershey Bomar | Apr 28, 2006 02:47 PM

Everyone knows what a beer gut looks like.

Everyone jokes about beer making you fat.

I don’t see the logic in this. And I want to know if there is any truth in the belief that beer makes you fat.

I’m happy drinking light beer. I’m happy with low carb beer. A few a week. But I’m currently trying to lose weight and the few beers make me feel guilty. Feeling guilty about something so trivial makes me feel like a wussy so I’d like to learn the truth.

What I kind of assume. NO beer doesn’t make you fat. Men easily gain weight in their gut. Maybe the gut is the first place men gain weight. The kind of men who drink beer enjoy snacking with their beer. Beer makes you impulsive and you snack more.

Beer is a scapegoat.

What do you think?
