I gained 20kg when I stopped smoking a couple years ago and then hovered at around 92kg for a couple years. I went on Atkins (fatkins) after Christmas 2012 and have lost 6kg...the weight loss is slow because I am still drinking, just red wine and bourbon. I have had a homebrew on three occasions and usually pull about 4oz once a night. If I had just stopped drinking completely, I'd probably be back down to where I want to be weight wise....but nope lol

Yes. Drinking packs on the pounds. I'm currently on the second week of a 4 week teetotal. Together with lots of gym and a lot less food. The results are dramatic and rapid.

There's no other way folks... less calories in more calories out. The math is simple but the execution is torture.

I drink around 3/ day on average. Eating more fresh food and some regular exercise though helps keep things in check.

If you feel like you need to shed some pounds then it is probably time. Other than that I would have to say ask a Dr. Personally I care less about the numbers and more about living a healthy lifestyle. Eat right and drink merrily.

When you feel like crap or you don't like looking in the mirror anymore. Mine was a little of both.

I also use small shifter glasses for beer during the week. Same # of glasses, a lot less beer.
