The Booze and Coffee Diet

What, no cigarettes...?

"A study says people who have one alcoholic drink a day are 54 percent less obesity-prone than teetotalers are. (But those with four or more drinks a day are 46 percent more obesity-prone.)

Another study indicates that among people who weigh too much or drink too much alcohol, those who drink more than two cups of coffee a day are only half as prone to chronic liver disease. Each study involved more than 8,000 people.

Cynical take: Wash out your fat with liquor, then rinse out your liquor with coffee."

Yeah, me too. Since I am back on the Frappacinos, I am getting the
good caffiene fix along with my normal 1.5 to 2 manhattans per day.
Damn, I feel healthier already.

A licker is a terrible thing to waste.

Harry Truman started each day with a shot of bourbon and a brisk walk. Had a second shot just before bed.

Good President he.
