    Beer!!!!!!!

    Shop Now
    OK, I know technically beer is made from wheat, but just how bad is it? I mean, how much wheat is actually in there as compared to eating bread or pasta? Is it really that bad to have a couple of brewskies on a Friday night? I'll chaulk it up to my 20% and be happy at that.

    Beer -- it has lots and lots of a purine in it. Purines raise uric acid. Fructose raises uric acid. Fructose and purines raise uric acid, and apparently they are finding out that high uric acid is what causes metabolic syndrome. Hence beer belly is pretty much like HFCS belly, from similar pathways.

    It's not really the gluten thing that much, except for real celiac types. Its effects are more like eating a handful of caramels now and then.

    P.S. Some beer is made with wheat and hops, but isn't most of it made from barley and hops?

    By the way, I've read that hops are estrogenic.

    afsjesse,

    I have found (through extensive research ;-) ) that I can have one or two lagers once or twice a week. Any more than that, and I will
    start to puff up. The "wheat beers" make me feel horrible (not surprisingly).

    It's your decision, and everyone is different...just see what works for YOU

    There are some beers made with sorghum instead of wheat. I am somewhat allergic to wheat so it works for me...tastes pretty good IMO as well. After drinking sorghum beer a while i came to dislike the taste of regular wheat beer.
