Over the past 3 months I have been monitoring my body-weight reasonably carefully by weighing myself most days when I get to work after I ride in. One of the most interesting features of the data I compile in my head (Extremely scientific I know) is that after a weekend that involves a lot of drinking, I put on quite a fair bit of weight.
However, this weekend gone by I seem found that I didn’t put on any weight and if anything actually lost it. I certainly drank alot, but the day after, I played a game and a half of fairly intense volleyball. From this rock-hard evidence I am going to suggest that it takes about a day for the energy of beer to metabolise into fat. I’ll keep an eye on it.
