MaHB Drinking: For The Last Time, The Beer Belly is a Myth
[Esquire Singapore] In my Man At His Best drinking column for Esquire’s October issue, I decided to dispel the beer belly myth once and for all. Here’s an excerpt:
Just like a unicorn galloping the length of a rainbow, there is no such thing as a beer-made belly. This muffin top that we speak of —that has been obstructing your commanding view of the can— is made up of fats that can come from anywhere. In the immortal words of Homer Simpson: Beer is the cause of, and solution to, all of life’s problems. It should remain that way, but be rest assured that the brew is not the main cause for that problematic flab. Read on unless you are a professional truffle shuffler.
Whilst poking your belly in utter disgust, remember the golden rule of fats overstaying its welcome: What isn’t burned will be stored. Beer or no beer, you can acquire a nice round bulge through a high-cholesterol, -carbohydrate and –calorie diet that your over-sustenance-purveying aunt would be proud of.
