Don't be a Fatty on St. Patty's

I do not have a drop of Irish blood in my veins, but I love St. Partick's as much as the next Connor O'Connor. Especially after visiting Ireland, I feel I have established roots within its green grasses.

The title of this post is not intended to be as harsh as it sounds... I just liked it because it rhymed; But, there  is a minuscule of true behind it regarding the amount of alcohol consumed. If you're Irish, you drink. If you're not Irish, you drink. St. Patrick's day is essentially an excuse to get a wee bit sham-rocked in a judgement-free environment. It's the day of green beer and good times, so by all means drink away. But, if you're like me.. I (1) don't drink a lot as a rule and (2) don't want to consume 1,000 + of liquid confidence. There is a way to enjoy yourself without while being cautions of your caloric intake. If you're mentality is "it's St. Patrick's day, I don't wanna worry about what I drink" then more power to you, Happy St. Patrick's Day and you'd probably want to stop reading here. If you are trying to enjoy yourself while being conscious of your diet, read on my friend.

Guinness is my beer of choice. It's dark, rick and fills me up. In all honesty, it's not as bad (calorie-wise) as you'd think. But what about the other beers? I present you, my St. Patty's Beer Survival Guide.
I found this on FitSugar, I love the brand and they always have the best health and fitness tips (@fitsugar).
