    A twelve pack in a week? That's a swallow more than two a day. I don't see a problem here. When we're talking about a six pack a day, then there's an issue...

    Maybe.

    Did you stop to think on it?

    What other factors might be involved?
    Calorie intake?
    Starting point?
    Activity level?
    Genes?
    Prior athletic history?

    Gosh. Did you think at all before posing the question?

    Do you think you provided enough information for an intelligent answer?

    It's all about the math dude. You can, if everything else is tinkered to take in the calories/glycemic index, etc.

    However, given that your friend isn't interested enough to dig for the information himself... then my answer is that it can, but probably won't, happen.

    LOL.

    Yeah, it sounds like he's a lazy bum, so, given the lack of a plan, lack of ambition, and lack of any further information, your friend is primed to be a DUMB fat ass.

    LOL.

    Plan for success.

    Great point!

    ROFL.

    I've known guys who ate at McDonald's every day, smoked dope until dawn, and drank until they fell over and worked out, and looked like a million bucks, but, could they sustain that?

    Miller light?

    Beer is a guilty pleasure. If you are going to indulge, indulge in something more palatable than that shit.

    I agree. The OP's question is grounded in one of the greatest misconceptions that still persists, even among fit people. That a calorie found in beer is different than a calorie found in, say tuna. Yes, yes, I know there's a difference between carbohydrates and protein and fat.

    But the fact of the matter is, if you are starving to death, whether you get a calorie from beer, chocolate or tuna, while you may not get the same nutrients (or none at all), a calorie is still a calorie.

    So...chuckystud is right. Here's the simple equation, all other things being equal:

    Weight change/fat change = [Calories In] - [Calories Out]

    If you are an athlete with lots of muscle mass, then the Calories Out part will be large, even your resting use of calories will be larger. If you are a couch potato and out of shape, then the Calories Out will be tiny.

    That said....if you are an athlete, have lots of calories out, yet you still don't have a six pack (I agree with the other comments on the other thread about this), you can get that six pack by eliminating calories thoughtfully...meaning empty calories, like those in alcohol.

    I've known many a Big 12 / Big 10 football player who had pizza, and beer, as staples of their diet, and they weren't fat. They were STUDS.

    Beer, wine, alcohol is simply calorically expensive. Considering that working out four days a week where you can burn extra calories three light beers is still a lot. Each one is around one hundred calories and they're all empty. You need real, nutrient calories in order to work out effectively!

    If you get it intravenously, you get the buzz without the calories. Just be sure to use clean needles.
