I've always preferred beer over other distilled drinks. I never sensed any logic in it except for one small thought that distilled drinks are harder than beer so I'd be getting more drunk. Thus, drinking beer would mean I'd be drinking, but not getting too drunk. However, after some years, I realized I was developing a pot belly. Well, I was an emotional-eater, which could be one reason, but whenever I used to drink beer, I used to realize my stomach getting that flat round shape. Does drinking beer really cause a pot belly?
