Alcohol and paleo

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created June 23, 2011 at 3:33 AM

Hi guys, I very rarely drink alcohol, maybe twice a year, usually beer or bourbon, I have been eating paleo for 4 weeks now and we are having visitors so I would like to have a couple of drinks and enjoy myself with them for the night. I have heard tequila is best, but if anyone could tell me what would be best and how to avoid any after affects the next day, it would be much appreciated.

Wow...that's a pretty cool hack. God, I wish I knew about that in college...probably would've given me a good 10 more years on my liver. Go Badgers!

Take some N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC) to prevent hangover. http://evolutionarypsychiatry.blogspot.com/2011/03/problems-i-have-nac-for-that.html If nothing else, it reduces the damage to the liver.

/o/\o\ High five to this answer! Hydration is key to reducing some of the ill effects of alcohol. Plus, red wine is the best!

"For one, although distillation removes gluten from gluten-containing spirits, the source grains may still be present in the facility, and present the possibility for cross-contaminating the gluten-free final product post-distillation. (This is the same reason why GF beers should be brewed in a dedicated facility, so as to avoid cross-contamination with barley and wheat used for other beers.)"

Amina, Ciroc is the duck nuts! Best vodka ever. Henny, i believe that distillation will get rid of the gluten, however most places that make alcohol aren't making gluten free alcohol, therefore there will be cross contamination. http://noglutennoproblem.blogspot.com/2009/01/distilling-facts-about-distillation.html

I think if it's distilled it doesn't matter if it's made from grain or not.

Ciroc is from grapes. Its vodka. There are others too that are not from grain.

I do gin, sparkling water, and lime. It is better to do on an empty stomach, as it will only take a few for you to get your buzz on. After you're done drinking, drink a good amount of water to limit dehydration. As per Robb Wolf's recommendation, a good whack of protein and fat before bed will mitigate some of the negative effects that the alcohol will have on growth hormone release. I would also do some GABA and magnesium to help you wind down properly before bed. And plan to get more sleep than you would regularly require. If you require 8, plan for 9 or 10 because sleep QUALITY is diminished by alcohol consumption. Alcohol messes up with the sleep cycles, often preventing you from getting to that final level of sleep.

Most important of all, DON'T STRESS ABOUT IT SO MUCH! Have fun, enjoy your company and remember that one night of partying will NOT totally derail all that you have accomplished!

I don't think it's the Tequila per se that is the trick. Distilled liquor, especially from non-grain sources is the best choice. But Robb talks in the book about the Tequila, lime, soda combo being good. I suppose if you like lime and soda in your bourbon, that could work as well, ewww ;-).

If you don't want hard stuff, apple ale/cider or hard lemonade would be better choices than beer.
