Men are you tired of hearing about how flat your stomach used to be and how the heaviest thing you lift now is your gut over your belt? If so, thats about to change, as I (drum roll please) am about to show you How to Get Rid of the Beer Belly without Giving Up Beer! Now let's get down to defining what a beer belly really is and determine if it is really caused by beer.

So, what is a beer belly? A beer belly is defined as a lump of fat thats taken up residence between your chest and what used to be your waist. Is it caused by beer? No. Science has proven the beer belly is fat caused by calorie build up, resulting from unhealthy diets and sedentary lifestyles. The abdomen is where men have their greatest deposit of fat cells so, if the body takes in a lot of calories and neglects to burn them through exercise, the body deposits that fat right in your stomach.

Now you know where the beer belly or should I say the hot wings belly comes from, next you have to decide what you are willing to do to reverse the curse. You can start by working on those fat cells that are spreading themselves on your stomach. Beer is not the direct cause of your waistline expanding, but it can be a factor. Alcohol makes you hungry, think Hot wings and Beer at Hooters (I mean the food is why you go, right?), so if you stopped drinking youd be taking a good step towards cutting down your calorie intake.

Get rid of the beer and you also get rid of the increased appetite. However, this article is about losing weight without getting rid of the beer, so that will not be included in our weight loss efforts. But you can switch to a lighter beer with fewer calories and in addition you can exercise more than you drink so that you are burning more calories than you are drinking. Some of you may think that exercising extensively is too much hard work, so that won't be included in our diet program either. But we will look at the best beers for your belly.

The first thing that probably comes to mind when you think of low calorie beer is the light beers that don't taste very good. This article was written for real men who would never dream of drinking one of those girly light beers.

First we have the nice and dark Guiness Draught; this beer is not light and with only 125 calories and 10 carbs, you don't have to worry about your belly. It's also full of flavor so you don't have to drink tons to make up for a bad taste. Second we have Beamish Irish Stout; it's light on calories with only 131. Finally, we have Busch which only has about 133 calories and around 10 carbs. So drink responsibly and get rid of that gut!

Now you know How to Get Rid of the Beer Belly without Giving Up Beer. So the next time she tells you to get off the couch and lose some weight, go get yourself a cold Guinness, pop the tab and tell her your working on it right now!
