    Beer gut?

    I had a very interesting chat with a phys ed trainer yesterday.

    I stopped drinking beer and switched to red wine when I started working out in February.

    I had always thought that beer guts were caused purely by the sheer volume of beer expanding the stomach wall, which is only 50%(ish) true.

    What I didn't know is that if you have ANY undigested starch in you (rice, cereals, pasta, potatoes, bread, etc), beer expands those as well.

    This comes from the Mayo Clinic:

    Digestion time varies between individuals and between men and women. After you eat, it takes about six to eight hours for food to pass through your stomach and small intestine. Food then enters your large intestine (colon) for further digestion, absorption of water and, finally, elimination of undigested food.

    In the 1980s, Mayo Clinic researchers measured digestion time in 21 healthy people. Total transit time, from eating to elimination in stool, averaged 53 hours (although that figure is a little overstated, because the markers used by the researchers passed more slowly through the stomach than actual food). The average transit time through just the large intestine (colon) was 40 hours, with significant difference between men and women: 33 hours for men, 47 hours for women.

    Chin, chin.

    And have you lost the gut ?
    I have a mate, who rarely ventures out anymore and when he does he will just have a couple of glasses of red wine, no beer. He solely lives on steaks, fish and shit loads of brocolli .
    Even though he has got his 6 pack back, he looks gaunt and ill, like a crackhead.

    Yep. A 15 minute session on a cross-trainer 4 or 5 times a week for a month or so demolishes it.

    I lost my gut by going veggie. I still drink 10-15 bottles of beer a day, do no excersise and have lost 14 k's in a year and it's still slowly coming off.

    Red wine and a cross-trainer can kill that gut, Dillinger.

    Forget about dieting (unless you eat fried and/or sugar-added foods) and abdominal exercises like crunches (sit-ups).

    In the meantime... an outstanding effort, LOL!

    I never said it was healthy, just that I lost my gut.

    14 kg's in a year ? wow.

    To be honest, I've put on in the same year nearly as much as youve lost. I went from 79kgs up to 90kgs. Although I still reckon those last scales I got on are faulty

    Why does the disposition of the trainer have anything to do with it?

    At 600-odd calories a bottle, it probably could.

    It would have been easier to show us where it wasn't.

    Indeed.
    Walking is surely underrated and not given the credit.

    Consistent movement is a key.....rather than an indolent lifestyle.
