    no. alchohol slows your metabolism down so you gain fat faster.

    plus beer has calories

    if you already have the leanest and muscular stature to have six pack abs (and not just a skinny dude with abs) and then you start drinking heavy, you may be able to maintain it. But if you are trying to develop your body in order to get the that level (having a six pack) then that 🤬 will be hard as hell. alcohol (and coke, syrup, opiates, etc for that matter) 🤬 off your testosterone levels bad and makes developing muscle very hard. alcohol also shuts down protein synthesis and raises insulin levels until the protein, carbs, fats that you have ingested are more likely stored as fat than used the way they would normally be if you hadn't took the drink. it also dehydrates you and pulls water (glycogen) out of your muscles as well. I drink maybe once every month or two if i go out to a venue or something but I used to drink alot more. from my personal experience it's a lot easier to get my body right without it. the way my body is now, if I started drinking alot more, I doubt that I'd lose what I have, but I also doubt that I could make gains either. also, all bets are off if you doing juice tho.
    if you do wanna drink, the best way to do it is to not eat at least 4 hours prior, load up on vitamins before and after, drink gatorade (electrolytes), and a gallon of water (over time within the next day)

    To be honest threadstarter... our society protein intake is way more than enough

    If your not working out constantly.. extra protien turns into fat.

    false...protein and fat are 2 entirely differtent things....

    Not for me, other with ridiculous genetics could probably accomplish this feat however.

    Eliminating visceral fat is a 🤬 as it is.

    Do a lot of cardio.

    stay clear of beer...wine is good, i have heard of instances where dudes only drink hard stuff like 151proof 153proof vodka and the like and maintained the six.

    Came here to say this.

    You're going to need to not only burn off the calories you're putting on from the alcohol, but also find a way to get rid of the estrogen that is in the beer. Yes, beer contains phytoestrogens due to the barley. Not only will you lose your abs b, but you'll grow 🤬 . I hear that''s how lady zee got so 🤬

    THat's kinda like asking "can I lose weight while eating Long John Silver and KFC every other day. Yes and No. Depends on how much you're drinking and how your fitness routine is.

    Its possible but you're making it hard on yourself. My philosophy is to work as hard as you party. So if you want to drink six packs, you better be running miles and doing hundreds of sit ups daily.

    that wouldn't have anything to do with a six pack though. a six pack is visible because of low body fat. you can't really bulk up a 6 pack, but workouts do make it look a bit better.

    gets a little harder as you get older, but hell yea you can be a drinker and have a six pack, as long as you work hard enough

    U can maintain it but not with beer. Clear liquor since it has less calories than dark liquor and beer. If you plan to drink on your off day of your workout plan, majority of your foods should be lean proteins with little fats and no carbs. Try to eat most of it when your about to drink. If you dont, youll end up pitching in the Jack in the 🤬 late night run. Drink plenty of water before you go to sleep. I did this during a cut.
