    Whisky or Bourbon are well worth the calories. :)


    Not only that, but a reasonable pour of a good whiskey is usually only about 150 calories. Not a hard thing to fit in to your daily allotment!

    It appears that I may need to start skipping breakfast (is that bad for me?), in order to get my proper allotment of whiskey each day.

    Just have a shot *for* breakfast then you needn't skip. What are they teaching kids these days, anyway?

    So I'm kicking back last night savoring a long, lingering finish of my Jameson 18 Year Old Limited Reserve, feeling warm and happy and I casually rotate the bottle to look at the back label..... and it says it contains alcohol!!! I was devastated by the trickery... I mean the lovely front label (all shiny green and gold and black) says absolutely nothing about alcohol... NOTHING!!!
    Did you know if you distill your own, it has no alcohol, and no calories.

    Lol. Cinnamon toast crunch thread. Good one.
    There was this hipster *kitten* restaurant we used to get drunk near in SF. I think it was like Blue Plate, or Blue Light, or whatever. They tried to capture the feel of the old Woolworth's lunch counters.

    Get this, cinnamon toast crunch french toast. It was almost like an Xzibit meme. So good when fully tossed.

    The good news is, once you drink enough, none of it matters! At least not for me!

    Check my diary and you'll see that I am (very) aware whiskey has calories, but the alcohol thing is news to me! Any chance we can get alcohol listed as a macro? I'm certain I could hit that number!

    Every darn day! I'd knock it out of the park!

    And THAT folks.

    Is an actual strong first post. :)

    I'm in for a daily ethanol dosing goal.

    I'm in...a long time ago I met a lonely man named Whiskey. He would not judge me. He would only listen to me and my slow moving disjointed ramblings. Many a bottle has been consumed, and my liver gently aches because of it.

    Now I have to fit it into my macros!?

    What percentage of my calories should be from alcohol?

    wait- so you're saying alcohol ISN"T a macro???

    While you seem the kilted slant, I invite you to the hills of Kentucky, to explore a small place called Rowan's Creek. Quite excellent.

    I never turn my nose up at good Kentucky bourbon... I have had Knob Creek, but never heard of Rowan's Creek... will put it on my list.

    Not sure if my black label had any alcohol or calories but I did get a PB on chin-ups last time I partook, so actually improves sports performance.

    Seriously considering it as a workout drink :smiley:

    I want peanut butter.
  • I think I need to do my own research on this...I'm gonna need some volunteers to be my test subjects. Any takers? I'd also like to find out what affect "said alcohol" has on the mind and actions before and after consumption. Should be interesting research...
