What are your thoughts on drinking non alcoholic beer from time to time? Or even alcoholic. I've been paleo for a little over a month but still occasionally have a beer to help boost my milk supply (I've breastfed my 15 month old since he was... (more)
This isn't totally a paleo question but I find that the wisdom and practicality of people on this forum often surprise me. So, what's your take? Have any of you done extensive, technical research 'round the web? For me, I'm pretty sure "none"... (more)
Although I usually try to avoid gluten, I occasionally will have a few beers. I've never been tested for celiac so don't know if I'm gluten-intolerant but have noticed that when I have lighter-colored beers I tend to wake up the next day feeling... (more)
How many people go with the 80/20 paleo rule. I.e. eat paleo 80% of the time and sad foods 20%. It seems to be a common recommendation from cross fitters. Just curious if the benefits are near as good as doing 100% paleo. Although I think I'd... (more)
I am brand spanking new to Paleo. In fact I just started today. I have a question that I'm sure has been asked 1000 times on here, but here goes anyway. I LOVE beer. I brew beer, I drink beer, I am passionate about beer, and I am the... (more)
Do paleo and keep the beer if you want to. A couple cliches to help you along the way: Don't throw the baby out with the bath water Perfect is the enemy of good Good luck!
Hi Fellow Paleo-ers! Listen, have you been paleo for a while (ive been for 2 months) and if you try to consume a grain, even the tiniest little piece, you get a reaction similar to anaphylatic shock but without your throat closing? I have always... (more)
thanks for the reply, same exact thing happens to me. BTW, ive been tested for celiac as well as that was negative. Last night i wanted to try a little experiment. I ate one cookie. And before i swallowed it the skin on the roof of mouth peeled... (more)
Are the gluten free beers the best option for someone trying to stick to the paleo diet? When I drink I usually drink vodka or tequila but sometimes I'd love to have a beer and not feel too guilty about it. Are there any beers that are an 'ok'... (more)
Inspired by this post (that got closed), I decided to re-address the issue. I followed autoimmune paleo for approximately 8 months, and while the 2 first months were significantly better than any of the previous diets I tried (raw veganism,... (more)
I work in the brew industry and drink beer as its part of my livelihood, I also homebrew cider. When out at events or tastings I just keep to small amounts, 4-6oz. pours, sometimes 2oz as it allows me to try more offerings. Alcohol in general does... (more)
Does beer make anyone else absolutely ill-feeling? In my case, I had one small beer after three weeks of eating Paleo, my husband (Paleo as well) had two and we both awoke the next morning to feeling as though we had gone on a Vegas-style bender,... (more)
I can't really tolerate alcohol since going paleo, but I miss the color (I know it doesn't make sense but I love the way light shines through a glass of white wine or champagne) and flavors of beer, wine, and cider. I get a buzz from one glass of... (more)
I have pinned down some of my food problems. After having chronic anxiety for a couple of years I've reduced it significantly through my new diet. As I've said before, sleeping like a baby! So... I've given up all grains, corn, sugar, most dairy... (more)
My stepdad has always marinated steaks in beer, my neighbor does it, and here I am with two pieces of meat to marinate and one of my roommates beers thinking to myself... "WILL THIS THROW ME OFF?!" Does marinating pieces of meat in beer cause... (more)
In a strict sense no alcoholic beverage is Paleo, since paleolithic people did not have access to wine, beer or whisky which are all products of the agricultural age. Nevertheless I know that many people in our own Paleo community do not have... (more)
Does it make sense to think that the fermentation process in creating alcoholic drinks (even beer) does a little bit to reduce the negative effects of the grains, etc. that are in there?
I did a search, but I could not find an answer to this. I am relatively new to paleo but the only appropriate drink for being on the boat out on the water is beer and I can not/am not willing to let it go at this point. It is my one vice, so... (more)
Since I've been on Paleo, every time I drink a beer (draft or bottled--doesn't matter) I get no buzz at all yet within 15-20 minutes I come down with a wicked headache that settles in around my temples and no amount of ibuprofen can quash it.... (more)
There are a few things but if I were you take a few weeks off beer and then try one that is gluten-free and see if you get the same result. Could be an allergy to hops, yeast or grains. Also, look at the labels on the beers that you reacted to and... (more)
I enjoy a couple of beers three or four times a week, but I've come to realize that I really need to stop drinking the stuff. I wonder if going cold turkey would be better than trying to gradually wean myself off? Or would you recommend not going... (more)
Ok, I know gluten free beer isn't strictly paleo or even loosely paleo, but there are days when I crave a nice dark beer. First off, I haven't able to find a dark gluten free beer in any store. Secondly, if I did, I'm sure it would be... (more)
So I love eating paleo; all of the health benefits, the lack of calorie counting, and the overall happier lifestyle. However, there are certain moments when I feel the desire to enjoy a fine cigar, a quality beer, and maybe indulge on something... (more)
Hi, I've recently tried PaNu and I think I will like this form of diet. However, what are your thoughts on having one cheat day per week? I'm in Asia and most if not all, eat rice as a staple. My cheat day would involve moderate amounts of... (more)
This cheat meal... Who are you cheating with it? See? So what you really want here is that someone tells you... Sure, go ahead, i do the same? So, you're weakness will be perfectly justified by someone else weakness... My point is you are not... (more)
Avoiding alcohol totally is out of the question. It's hard to drink gluten free beer when out (not available anywhere, other than Guinness, which isn't really gluten free), so I tend to go for red wine. Which is more damaging though, red wine or... (more)
1-2 drinks has Been shown to have positive effects, more is liver damaging. Red has more antioxidants, resveratrol, etc. Sorghum Beer is made from a gluten free grain but still contains lectins etc. I'd shoot for Red everytime. Anyone thinking... (more)
This is a special kind of cow. Originally they get japanese rice wine, sake. Here they get beer. Have you heard about Wagyu "Kobe-Style Beef" cows? What do you think of them? Their meat is very expensive.
Adding alcoholic beverages to the diet of cows...it reminds me of foie gras. Just another ridiculous unnatural food item seen as "luxurious" or "haute cuisine". I'll pass.
