The Beer Vs. Jogging Debate

Beer Bottles

I remember reading some time ago this study that 3 bottles of the golden brew can help control cholesterol as well as jogging (I apologize for the lack of documentation, but I’m sure I read it somewhere). Well, theoretically, there is some grounding to this claim. Moderate guzzling of beer increases the body’s high-density lipoprotein (HDL) which are also known as “the good cholesterol” in some books.

But does this mean that beer should replace exercise? Well, definitely not. While beer raises HDL levels, beer just packs a lot more calories. Exercise raise HDL and burns calories. So don’t you even wonder why exercise gives you sexy abs and not a beer gut.

Doing both doesn’t really doubles the advantage. So the bottom line: drink moderately and responsibly and there’s no substitute to exercise.
