Default Cut back on Beer because the belly is too big?

Any one else cutting back on their beer consumption because they are gaining too much weight? I've gained 6 pounds so I have to stop drinking until I lose it again.

Sad thing is, I can't stop brewing the beer so I figure I would brew more porters and stouts that take a while to age since I can't drink it.

New years resolution - down the drain.....

I'll stop drinking beer when there's six feet of dirt between me and the nearest homebrew.

If I ever come down with dickey-do* then I probably would cut back. There is a fine line to balance between indulging in your passion and being healthy. Everything in moderation.

I work out enough that I don't gain much weight, and I've convinced myself that the extra calories are "bulking" calories.

Never! I just run a few more miles a week. The fancy new treadmills at the YMCA even tell you how many calories your burning. Two big beers is right around five miles.

Im going the other route and trying to be more active and eat more fresh foods. The beer weight is a real concern though. Im hoping I can make enough of an impact with other lifestyle choices that I dont have to regulate my beer consumption.

I am trying to run more, cut out High Fructose Corn Syrup (Its in EVERYTHING!), eat more whole foods, and work out more. (3x a week)

I noticed that when I went cold turkey for 3 weeks, I lost 6 pounds without changing anything in my diet or workout. Food for thought... no pun intended.

yep. Only one per day and maybe 2 on a weekend night. Also moderate portions, low carbs and exercise. Otherwise I'll gain back the 60lbs I lost.
