drink beer? - drinking beer and eating chips

here's a game on TV, so you grab a beer and a bag of chips and you settle in. The chips leave you a little thirsty, so you grab another beer. After a while, you notice that the chips are almost gone and it's not even halftime. You jump in the car at the break, go and pick up a Burger King Whopper and a bag of fries and return for the second half.Of course, you have to drink another beer. OK, it's not "just the chips," but the calories n three beers (450 for "average" beers) don't add up to the calories in a Whopper (650), or an 8-ounce bag of potato chips (1,200),or a large order of fries (500)at a fast food restaurant. As noted elsewhere, if you drink one 12-ounce bottle of beer every day and don't otherwise alter your diet or your exercise regime then you can expect to gain about 15 pounds over the course of a year.Something has to give. We sure don't advocate giving up eating, but it seldom hurts to get more excercise or to to think about what you are eating.

This is true.We can not just eat and drink what ever we want with out thinking of all of the calories we are puting into our bodies. We too must also get excercise also.
