I'm in college and I've got 3 roommates that go out pretty regularly 2-3 nights per week at least.
I usually go 1-2 of the nights because being a downer sucks.
Well in my town if you go downtown drinks are virtually free, everywhere is like 5 dollar cover and either free beer/liquor or dollar beer/liquor. So pretty much everyone is drunk and its just awkward to try and go downtown and not drink...
Unlike them however my metabolism is naturally fairly low. I've gained muscle and a little bit of fat over the past 7 months.
I eat about 2k calories a day sometimes less and that allows me to maintain.
I workout a good 5-6 days a week, lifting 4-5 days a week and doing cardio 4-5 days a week a mix of cycling and running.
My question is if I cut my calories to about 1,200 before I go out can I get away with drinking a good 10 beers. After I go out and drink I always wake up in the morning grab a big bottle of water and hit the gym for 1-2 hours of cardio.
