That, mixed with the fact we play 2 times a week pickup, which they down a 6 pack before that game too now imagine the calories in that! Personally, im gettin into shape also and i stay away from gettin drunk before playing, im more or less using the time for the extra cardio excercise.
This is definately where I feel I am doing the most damage to my body. On one hand I am doing my body good in playing a hard game, but then we are drinking before and after the game too (although usually a light beer), plus we go to the bar and eat alot of Wings/Nachos and cheese.
For now, I will use this as my reward at the end of the week.

Diets are a bit hard sometimes, you really have to know what your doing. You gotta start by seeing how much calories your body burns in a day, then try to see how much you eat in a day.
If you don't train much, its better to eat less then you burn, as a result you'll start losing fat.
If you start training a lot, I was reading that you actually need to eat more then your burning, it sounds messed but it was true for me.
I would go into greater detail, but that might take a while, so if you need any help just to see how much your burning or diet plans, let me know
I think my first step is to cut the garbage out of my diet and just eating healthier in general. I've downloaded some diet guides and basic level fitness videos to get started!
Thanks for the support guys!
