I drank 2 beers while walking 18 holes of golf yesterday. I did not feel any significant ill effects like I might after eating something like bread. This is after 2 years of gluten free and 5 months strict paleo.
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)
For shits n gigs, I'm watching 'How Beer Saved the World' and although filled with shaky claims IMO, I think their theory on the origin of agriculture has some merit. After all, why else go through tons of processing in order to make grains... (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)
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)
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)
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)
So many of you know that I started paleo about 6 months ago after finally leaving the beer industry. I still have many friends there and an annual ritual that we have is a veggie dog eating contest at a neighborhood festival, that is coming up... (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)
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)
So my elimination diet came to an end a week ago. It was time to see what was up. The only intolerance I was testing for was gluten intolerance though I also cut out beans and don't really care if they ever come back. The dismount wasn't as smooth... (more)
Hi Guys, I was wondering; how much gluten is contained in your "average" beer? I understand that it will no doubt vary and some may be lower-to-none and some higher-than-others but I am after some indication or comparison? For example is one... (more)
In Belgium, as everybody knows, we have the best beer in the world! Literally hundreds of them, all sorts and all kinds. Now, I really don't drink much of them, almost none lately. Not that I have noted any adverse effects, but I actually prefer... (more)
Been paleo for 2 years, feel great lost 100lbs. 3 days ago I had a beer - supposedly gluten reduced. Hadn't had a beer in over a year.Woke up the next morning with neck pain in my thyroid area, hurts a little to swallow.. I am thinking it's the... (more)
Could be a bunch of things....really doubt it was a beer you drank three days ago, that's impossible. Heck, could just be a sore throat or uvulitis or something.
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)
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!
