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.

Was it cheap mass-produced beer (e.g. Budweiser)? Most of those beers are essentially gluten-free, testing below detectable limits for gluten proteins. Many celiacs can drink them without issue as well. You are obviously not celiac, so you're... (more)

I'm new to Paleo. I guess most beer is out of the question due to the barley or other grain it's made from. So no more Guinness?

Most beer is ALMOST gluten free, and you can go out of your way to get certified gluten free beer if you have a severe reaction such as celiac. While our ancestors probably didn't have access to good beer, it's a pretty healthy beverage in... (more)

This has nothing to do with the color of the beer, rather the ingredients used to brew it. All beer is made of water, yeast and grain at it's most basic. It's quite possible the stouts you are drinking are made with a higher proportion of... (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 don't believe in the 80/20 rule, I think it is best to be 100% paleo. After being paleo for a while you won't have any cravings. Although that's not to say you can't have any treats every now and then, just make sure they're not too non-paleo,... (more)

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. (more)
