That's a good point, I might not be able drink 8 or 9 anymore. Well a six-pack might just be perfect. I still want to be able to wake up and hit the wieghts early Monday morning :)

Now I wish I WOULD NOT have had those 9 beers on the Super Bowl!!! The week after the Super Bowl was the ONLY week that I didn't lose between 2 and 3 1/2 pounds. My diet and excercise has been spot on EVERY day of the last 7 weeks except for the 9 beers that I consumed on the Super Bowl. So I have to assume that the beer slowed my metabolism for that week.
So I personally would recommend not drinking on free days at all or atleast not until you are at your goal weight. Once at your goal weight than you could drink moderately once or twice a week and still maintain whatever your goal weight is. That's the approach I'm gonna take once I get to where I want to be. But the key is "moderation", afterall if we were all eating and drinking in "moderation" we wouldn't have gotten in the bad shape that has brought us to this wonderful website.
Just posted on another thread regarding free day alcohol...post follows:
Got to counter the alcohol impact point again...have had between 8 and 12 lite beers each free day...just finished week 6....down 4 pounds this week and 21 overall. 49 years young, 5'11", 213, 25% body fat...down from 30% 6 weeks ago...do not believe my free day beers have cost me any more than any other calories...actually, I think if I ate those calories in pizza and wings I would be much worse off.....
