Good day everyone! Granite Fitness might be a health and fitness site, but we are also about moderation. Part of our philosophy is that we will not dissuade you to stave off your favourite foods completely, because we believe that it is simply unsustainable in the long-term! And yes, this also includes beer! But remember – in moderation. You can fit one or two in occasionally, but not a whole carton in one session, okay?
Before we proceed with today’s post, let’s talk a bit about beer. In terms of calorie intake, beer is mostly carbohydrates, not fat! Do not be tricked into thinking that beer contains a lot of fat. Does beer make you fat? Not in a direct way. But that being said, an excess of calorie-intake by carbohydrates will result in weight gain. And no, not all of it goes straight to the gut – that’s a myth. So there!
Anyway, today’s post is for beer lovers. You see, it just so happens that I have a couple of mates who are into their beers. They are true connoisseurs of it, and even make a habit of grabbing a bottle of foreign beer, tasting it, and recording all of it in the form of a review. And so I would like to share a few of my favourite ones with you. Here we go:
Video One: Perverse Sexual Amalgam
Video Two: Erdinger Weissbier
Video Three: Electric India
Fascinating, isn’t it? Courtney and Dan are perfect role models as responsible beer lovers. Do subscribe to their YouTube channel if you enjoyed it. Simply:
Oh, what do you think goes well with a nice bottle of beer? The Paleo diet of course. At least in Australia this makes sense – meat on the BBQ and a beer to go along with it. That being said, here are some Paleo resources for you:
