Nice write-up on athelete diets and rocking vegan style in Health & Nutrition Programs Posted July 18, 2014 You guys are funny!!! I thought putting all the veg in your tequila neutralized the effects -- like peeps getting Big Mac extra value meal supersized with a diet coke.... I don't know about one or two drinks equaling 2 weeks lost. Mike Dolce who does nutrition/training for UFC fighters commented on a pod-cast that a 'cheat day' (maybe it was a cheat meal? I forget) can undo 2 days of good nutrition and working out. That makes a little more sense to me than 1 beer or unit of alcohol knocking away 2wks of training...unless except that 1 unit of alcohol leads to a plate of nachos, or wings, or both, and other similar crap bar foods. All things in moderation! And in the event I go a bit over that moderation point...there's always extra stuff to do tomorrow to make up for it... Haha.. cucumbers are hydrating! So they help balance the tequila! Maybe he's speaking personally. Maybe he's just one of those people that can't handle much alcohol. If one beer knocked out 2 weeks of training for me I'd never have accomplished anything. LOL Personally I think anything done in moderation is fine. And if it's not done in moderation then yeah I try to combat the negative effects of it as best I can. ok this may make me sound like I need AA but ... I actually have systems for when I drink. One I never drink on an empty stomach, I always follow it with lots of water, I drink through out the night even after I go to bed! I also juice cucumbers, limes, celery and ginger after a night of drinking because I think it helps flush the alcohol out and prevents stomach issues the next morning.
