But most of us believe beer does in fact lead to beer bellies
A recent study -- commissioned by the beer industry -- claims drinking beer doesn't cause beer bellies. But most outside the beer industry are skeptical.
Dr. Carol Wolin-Riklin, a registered dietician at UT Health Science Center in Houston, says drinking beer does cause beer bellies, but it might be more what you eat while drinking beer.
"If you're sitting around the bar drinking longer you may be more likely to eat the bar food."
KTRH beer guru James Simpson, a thin man, says there's no doubt beer drinkers like pizza and wings and nachos with their beer.
"Oh, I mean absolutely, they're like peas and carrots; they complement each other quite well."
Simpson says the key is to drink in moderation -- and you need to exercise. He says don't drink so much you're hung over and can't work out the next day.
