I think if you get hammered on homebrew nightly you'll get your required
B vitamins too
That's the key, I think. The only reason I'm not a big fat slob is that I force myself to exercise and not drink (or eat) too much. Last night we went for our fast paced walk and bumped into a friend. We stopped to chat for a minute and he asked us if we're keeping in shape by walking. My husband and I both responded at the same time, "No, we're earning a beer". Today, I'm hand digging a small pond so I don't have to go to the gym.
I used to be able to eat and drink whatever I wanted and it didn't seem to matter. After 40, I noticed that I have to work much harder to stay fit.
