Default IF and Beer Drinking on Vacation

Ok I am trying to put together my plan for vacation (leaving tomorrow if you didn't know ).

I am an avid offshore fisherman and we have a real simple rule. You have to have at least one fish in the boat before you can crack open your first beer. So to solve this somewhat difficult dilemma we get up at 6:30 am and head out. Once you have left the dock the very first thing you do is stop and catch bait. I am somewhat partial to the belief that the first bait fish that bites a hook and hits the deck qualifies as a catch, allowing everyone to have a celebratory beer. Just for clarity to the uninitiated, the fish we catch for bait offshore are larger then a lot fish my buddies relegated to inland lakes catch to eat all the time.

So here is the rub, beer has calories so does that mean that I need to use a different protocol for feeding other than IF while I am in the Keys? Because I am sure based on what I said above you get the general idea that we probably will have beers open oh I would guess somewhere around 6:45 .

Because moderation is absolutely imperative I will not be switching to liquor until we have the boat safely docked at the marina. This is why I thought IF would work. I would in my mind ignore all the calories from the daddy pops and then feed whilst drinking my Sailor Jerry and Don Julio Anejo.

Last point which I feel compelled to share is that the beer being consumed will be some flavor of Mexican / south of the border beer. I have found that the beers coming up from down south tend to taste really good on a boat when it is 90 degrees and the sun is beating down.

I know this is a difficult task to come up with an eating protocol for such a difficult situation but I am absolutely confident that you guys can help me.

I'd buy a can of tuna the night before....as soon as you set anchor....attach to hook and reel it in....then celebrate....

I hope my humor was evident in the first post. I plan on eating and drinking well mainly Paleo but very very well!

There is no humor when it comes to beer....I take that very seriously.

I've got a similar dilemma facing me this weekend.

Going Diving for 3 days and the medical advice is not to drink the night before diving. Protocol suggests that once your air runs out you should switch to beer and decompress at the bar.

I'd say something, but I'm drunk.

Stoopid IFing.

Drinking while IFing is cool....no pesky food in the stomach to slow absorption. When you're only slightly above lightweight status like me, 2 beers on empty serves up a nice buzz. I recommend you go with 24 hour food fasts, but only about 6 hours (have to sleep sometime) without beer.
