How do you get a beer belly?

Beer contains calories. If you are consuming more calories than you are burning, you will gain weight. See attached article for more.

Switching from regular beer to lite beer would save substantial calories and carbs:

Beer (reg) 153 calories 13 g. carb. 0.00 fat

Beer (lite) 103 calories 6 g. carb 0.00 fat

80 proof liquor (vodka, gin, tequila, whiskey, rum

97 calories 0 g. carb 0.00 fat

Wine (red)125 calories 4 g. carb 0.00 fat

Wine (white)121 calories 4 g. carb 0.00

A good choice might be liquor, which contains only 97 calories and no carbohydrates. However, beer is less fattening than most non-alcoholic beverages. For example it has more calories and carbs than regular cola.

It's also important to exercise regularly to burn calories and maintain muscle tone. Sit-ups are especially helpful in firming abdominal muscles.
