Absolutely, I dont binge on sprirts, alcopops, crap beer etc. to get hammered but I enjoy the taste or real ales (not lagers etc, i can drop that like a hat). When a beers made up the road from you, so lively, full of vitamins, tasty, its so enjoyable finding good pubs!
Its my choice, and my battle to balance :¬D Ive been really fat on beer... i felt rubbish, i now dont drink in the week as a rule and enjoy a beer at weekends... my cheat, if you will. Will i ever see 8 abs? i doubt it. Do I enjoy weight workouts, yes, its intoxicating in its own way and I still make progress people notice. Alcohol hates exercise, exercise hates alcohol... Im stuck in the middle :¬D Difference for me, I choose quality alcohol. If my real ales were alcohol/calorie free Id still drink it
At the end of the day you need to enjoy life too, if thats alcohol free, then kudos to you, but its not for everyone
