Effects of Vodka?


#1

Now being a college student, i tend to attend a party or 2 every now and then. On top of dieting and working out, how much would drinking vodka + crsytal light affect my body in terms of calories/fat/carbs and all that jazz?

or should i just completely back away from the alcohol?

Don’t sweat it bud. Have a good time and enjoy yourself. Drink in moderation to socialize.

The article’s a few years old, but good:

Don’t overdo it. Or at least don’t overdo it to excess.

The worst thing vodka can do to your body is make you black out and bang a fatty.

I’ve been cutting for the last 8 weeks or so, I’ve lost 17-18lbs whilst getting stronger in my lifts. I would venture to say at least once a week during that time period I was from tipsy to smashed off sambuca shots, jagermeister, vodka and diet mixers.

Just make sure you keep the rest of your week pretty strict, you’re young and can take a beating provided you keep up the hard work.
