I'm not a daily drinker, but I have a high tolerance. Maybe a couple days out of the month I'll get myself nicely buzzed on a Saturday night (it takes about 2-3 servings per hour to get me there, and 1 every hour after to maintain).
Yes, I know it is a grotesque amount of calories I consume... Especially when I go for my dark beers. Usually it's tequila shots or rum and diet soda. I drink water in between and keep fresh veggies on hand in case I want to munch. I plan my "drunk days" a week in advance, and over the course of the week, I eat at the bottom of my calorie range and squeeze in some extra exercise to make room for the alcohol.
I'm happy to report I haven't had a hangover from this, nor do I have any health problems as a result. I'm consistently losing about 1.8 lbs. per week, too, so it obviously hasn't hurt my weight loss efforts.
Just my $0.02 worth... Your mileage may vary.
