Paleo beer.....

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created November 14, 2012 at 12:28 AM

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' option? I realize that none are exactly paleo, just want to know if one is 'more paleo' than the others

Ideal for weight loss.

Water increases metabolic rate as well. I can use twinkies to replace sweet potato & butter. Would that mean its ideal?

Since alcohol increases metabolic rate significantly, it can be used for weight loss provided that carbs are avoided.

CD, I found a few interesting links for you. Happy reading! ;) 1. Chronic Ethanol Consumption Lessens the Gain of Body Weight http://jpet.aspetjournals.org/content/331/1/23.full 2. Alcoholics, as compared with social drinkers, showed a lower body weight due essentially to a fat mass reduction http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1046/j.1365-2796.1998.00381.x/abstract 3. Alcohol appears to increase metabolic rate significantly, thus causing more calories to be burned rather than stored in the body as fat. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alcohol_and_weight Wiki also contains lots of links.

CD, this is not an issue of belief. The article you call “bullshit” contains simple statements which can be easily verified by reading a book on biochemistry: a) Alcohol Does NOT convert to Fat b) Alcohol is converted into acetate c) Alcohol increases hunger and d) Alcohol impairs carb metabolism. It's that simple! The rest of the article just goes in detail with every statement. And many other sources on alcohol and weight loss explain that most drinks contain a lot of sugars (cocktails, beers, sweet wines etc.) and they are the main problem with weight loss, not ethanol itself.

Paleolithica, you can believe all you want, and I encourage you to. On a side note, I know very few alcoholics who are skinny -- unless they have gone so far over the cliff that cannot afford booze and food (and choose booze). My point was that a non-credible website that references studies and does not link to those studies is worthless. The information has no value and should not be trusted. BTW, I have searched four peer review sites and pubmed and been unable to identify any of the studies on that site.

CD, what is “bullshit” at the link about alcohol and weight loss I posted? Please be specific. By the way, “professional” alcoholics are all skinny :) Regarding alcohol itself, I do not think it is so harmful and awful as others tend to believe. I think that it is bad food consumed with it (e.g. SAD) that makes it so toxic for our organisms.

How?? alcohol halts the body from burning calories until it rids itself of all the alcohol. Plus it slows down the meatbolism. I'm all for sensible indulgences, but don't trick yourself into thinking its good for you.

Actually, alcohol itself is quite compatible with weight loss. It is wise to balance the amount of alcohol and motivation while losing weight.

If you are not trying to loose weight, you do not have celiac disease, you are not an alcoholic, and are not drinking multiple beers a day every day...

Then just drink what you enjoy the most. Get the best tasting beer you can find and enjoy it.

Lets be real for a moment.

Mostly every alcohol espeacially beer has sugar, wheat, barley malt etc. You'll most likely end up eating "cheat " foods if you're in a party/celebration atmosphere. Why bullshit yourself into thinking alcohol is healthy. Why not just enjoy youreslf (responsibly) stop trying to cheat the system & get back on track the next day.

I avoid gluten period, but I don't do well with it. Widmere Bros. makes a pale ale and lager that are gluten free and actually worth drinking. I've tried a few other brands and they were just awful. If you have a Whole Foods close, they may carry or be able to get it in.

Green's makes a grain free beer and I believe there is another brewery who makes one as well. I haven't tried them yet but it may be worth a look or a google search to try and find one. I LOVE IPA! The problem I have is that since going Paleo 3 months ago, if I drink only 2 IPA's I am doubled over in pain in my gut. :-( How sad for me. Been making those NorCal Margaritas. Reposado is actually not bad. I was never a liquor drinker but in the name of the lifestyle, I'm all in.

Best luck and if you find something really tasty please share!

Budweiser's gluten content is so low that most celiac people can have it, so if you like that stuff, that's not the WORST option. I've tried brands like Glutenberg, but it's just not the same. I used to love beer. A lot. But in the interest of health and my weight loss, I've cut it out completely. I really only drink red wines and whiskey.

I use Mark's guide for reference: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/low-carb-alcohol/

I have a suggestion... how about making your own beer with some very traditional recipe? Like fermenting it for ... a very very very long time?

Also, try some Asian rice beer. You will be glad you did.

Why drinking beer? Dry wines are so delicious and tasty! And dry wines are paleo. Want more? No problem! Try vodkas! Although made from evil grains, vodkas are separated ???naturally??? from their bad grain sources, so that only pure spirits reach the destination and your body for your pleasure ;)

If paleo, consider dry wines or pure spirits.
