  1. With MGD being 64 calories, it says that miller chill is 100 calories per bottle. And i have heard that MGD is well over 100 calores per bottle

  2. MGD 64 is 64 calories, while regular MGD is probably well above 100 cals.

  3. Hey whats the nutrion plan for P90X consist of???? my email is above so can you please e-mait to me.

  4. You can find sample diets of mine on this site. Look in the “My Diet” section.

  5. So a question about your serving size for the beverages…. For example your rum and diet coke. A diet coke has zero cal- how much rum are you using? 1 oz? Most drings generally come with 2oz rum for 12oz soda….

  6. Varies b/w 1 and 2 ounces.
