Why do you get a Beer Belly or Gut

man with beer belly holding lager A beer belly or beer gut is one of the bad side effects to drinking regularly. This apple shape occurs because calories from alcohol are not stored in the body, but used immediately as energy.

The body wants to get rid of alcohol as soon as possible - it's a toxin, so it rapidly sends it to the liver to detox the body.

This is not good because instead the body stores calories from other sources - fat for instance! This tends to accumulate around the belly - not a good look.

Figures from the Department of Health reveals that drinking five pints of beer a week has the same number of calories as eating 221 doughnuts a year.

To burn off a pint of beer you need to run for 13 minutes or swim for 20 minutes.

Beer or lager calories can add up fast if you're out for the night - try a low-calorie soft drink for a change - it's healthier too. Work on that six pack on your abs instead of the version with tins of lager - you'll enjoy the admiring looks you'll get much more than a headache from the night before!
