Guess you could try that ultra light michelobe beer. I don't drink personally, gave it up last year with smoking. They go hand in hand for me unfortunately.

As a fellow beer enthusiast, I can attest to the fact that it does have an effect on the abs. But the good news is that in turn equals a better and longer workout and THAT leads to feeling accomplished and better about yourself : )

The problem with beer, and most alcoholic beverages, is that it's a junk food. That is, it's simply empty calories with no nutritional value whatsoever. That doesn't mean you can't drink it, but it does mean you should eat less calories throughout the rest of your day. Make sure, however, that you are still receiving adequate amounts of protein and carbohydrates; people tend to foolishly cut these out along with calories in their diet. But more importantly, what is your fitness goal? Do you only want a six-pack, or do you want to be in good shape? Also, is a six-pack to you really worth putting one of your passions on the back-burner for? Really, you don't need cut abdominals to look good or be in shape. I know plenty of people who have body-fat above 10 percent, but they could run circles around me. And mine is around 3 percent!

I can give up a lot of things, but drinking is a no go. I work in a bar, and its just part of the environment i am constantly around. I have cut back, massively, and will have the occasional sober week to jump start a new program but im a drinker, and thats that. What ive started doing that has really helped me is instead of my normal cocktails, i do straight vodka. Vodka is the lowest calorie alcohol. If straight is too harsh, you can always had a spash of no calorie flavoring, like mio. Since your a beer drinker thoguh, thats tough. Seeing as your only real alternative is "light beer" which taste anything like a well crafted brew.
