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)

I can't read, for a minute, I thought you were drinking alcoholic beer for the proclaimed benefits. I would ditch the stuff, but in reading more about NA beer, it doesn't seem bad and might actually boost the coq10 content of the milk. ... (more)

Occasionally I come across a recipe that could be modified for Paleo except that it calls for beer. I'd rather not buy Redbridge because its expensive and it does have corn syrup. What would be a good sub?

Stock will do the trick most of the time, as will water with a bouquet garni for flavor. Apple cider (hard or not) also works well. From time to time I'll also use wine. (more)

Yes, thick beer was used as a food source and small beer (1% alcohol content) was used as an alternative to water because the alcohol killed the germs.

Maybe something to do with the hops? I know they're phytoestrogenic, so maybe that's the cause.

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)

Have you checked whether this is simply due to the beer? If I'm correct beer contain traces of grains - usually the grains that are less tolerated than rice.
