How fast can I develop a beer belly, and how fast can I get rid of it?
It seems as though once men and women reach their mid-30s, a beer gut will just pop up out of nowhere. It develops slowly over time, and then just sort of snowballs out of control. And getting rid of it is no easy task.
A beer belly makes mobility difficult. Going for walks, hikes, or runs with one can lead to insane psoas/back pumps that make you not want to move anymore. Then, any sort of physical therapy is impossible because your massive stomach is now in the way. It takes an immense amount of determination and discipline to get rid of a beer belly, which is difficult, particularly for the lazy people this usually affects.
What's the best way to get rid of a beer belly, but still enjoy a drink once in awhile?
Introduce some high-intensity interval training into your life and eat like a caveman. That beer belly won't survive. Healthy eating habits will also help suppress the late-night drunchies, which, alone is a huge factor to the beer belly. Next, drink vodka or tequila, or a lower-calorie beer. Just be mindful -- if you overindulge in some Red Dogs, just know that you're going to have to hit a workout really hard to burn that off.
