It's crazy Rhett, it's almost like people enjoy different quantities of different things, like there's not one specific magical number that constitutes the quantity you should have of every possible thing.

I hear you can fill your e-cig 20 times and its like you've only had one cigarette!
I had 10 baby carrots earlier as a snack, and I am not looking forward to having to eat 10 veggie burgers for dinner. :(

So now you're defending how much "fatties" eat?

You've turned a new leaf.

I was unaware either Yada or Jaded are "fatties".

Six 5% pale ales are about 900 calories.

Six 7% IPA's are about 1260 calories.

Regardless of whether they are "fatties", that doesn't seem like an effective nutritional intake. Drink like that, and eventually you'll be an "unhealthy" and most probably a "fattie". Am I missing something?

Drink a 6-Pack a Day & Still Get Six Pack Abs

I can google too.

A Six-pack A Day Is A Formula For Cirrhosis

http://articles.sun-sentinel.com/2000-09-18/lifestyle/0009180364_1_cirrhosis-lupus-six-pack



Putting all of the above aside, consider the liver. A man who drinks six to eight 12-ounce cans of beer every day on a regular basis can almost count on developing liver cirrhosis within 10 to 15 years. Cirrhosis is a scarred, nonfunctioning liver that bestows a most unpleasant life and an early, gruesome death.

It's not how I would choose to use my calories, but it's not out of the range of possibility of someone doing this, I don't know, once a week or something like that. Say your TDEE is ~2,400 calories and you only take in 2,200 calories a day Sunday thru Friday. Your splurging on 1200 calories of beer on Saturday is, from a purely caloric viewpoint, mitigated by the modest daily caloric deficit you ran all week.

That's a completely different issue, albeit a valid one. I think you're willfully conflating "drinking a six-pack of beer" and "drinking a six-pack of beer every day on a regular basis" though.

Yes, I get that a six-pack every day is different than binge drinking. Still, binge-drinking isn't exactly healthy living either.

From the binge drinking wiki with multiple cited sources:

Quote
There is currently no worldwide consensus on how many drinks constitute a "binge", but in the United States, the term is often taken to mean consuming five or more standard drinks (male), or four or more drinks (female), over a 2-hour period.

If you kill a sixer in an hour, yeah, that's probably binge drinking, but a six pack over an afternoon/evening really isn't, in my mind.

The [DC-Beer] listserv is all on fire about where to get cucumber beer.  Is this for real, or is it like asparagus water?
