It’s a heavyweight proof. The beer belly seems to shout out loud: Look at me, drinking makes you fat! But why? A scientific study from Czech Republic, where beer is not exactly unpopular as a beverage, showed no correlation between the BMI (body mass index, ratio height : weight) and the individual beer consumption.
Brace yourself: According to this study, ladies with moderate beer consumption are even slimmer than non-drinking ones! In fact beer has fewer calories than many fruit juices. Also fewer calories than chips, pizza or hamburgers.
Hands down- it’s exactly this kind of food you are craving after a proper drinking binge, no? Beer makes you hungry, and reduces your self-control. So perhaps this very combination is the actual reason for the beer belly?
