Cutting out processed foods....

Recommended Posts

just be vary some of the preservative free organic business is all smoke mirrors. eg all beers are sold pasteurised in anywise. ,major breweries in australia send bottled or canned or keg product through a pasteuriser before final packaging.... so should have no need for preservatives.

 

good article below, personally i think compared with the amount of processing that goes on with foods, what processing there is in alcohol an stuff added is pretty minimal, least worries :)

Not really; most alcoholic drinks have consumed virtually all the actual sugar in them to create alcohol. But obviously alcohol has its own effects and metabolism which are quite distinct and different from sugar, though they share some common elements.

:party

If only most beer drinkers knew ALL beer is low carb and low sugar!!!! Still got calories though.

 

I did find it very interesting that the liver does not produce insulin in response to alcohol, so drinking in moderation is okay on the Keto diet, but of course, you still have to be in calorie deficit to lose weight.

all I know is red wine is far more likely to get me than the same alcohol content of dark rum, scotch (mixed with diet cola) or beer. Pity, I really enjoy and savour red wine where others get drunk like lolly water. I can drink a 6 pack of beer or pre mixed spirits over the course of an evening (4-5 hours) and feel mildly tipsy, but a full bottle of red would really hit me at the time as well as the next day.

Yeah I read it and it discounted what I feel. Most of the spirits I drink are dark, as is the wine so most of what I consume are higher in congeners. A bottle of red is roughly the same alcohol as 6 mid strength beers or pre mixed spirits.

perhaps its just a concentration thing and how hits body. 13%  alcohol per glass red wine is high vs say one shot in a mixer 7% alcohol ? or mid strength beer also alcohol is only 3.5% lets say in 375ml -  1 std drink per bottle or stubbie ? 

 

a bottle of wine is a bit of a hit overall too with 8.5 std drinks. they say the 1 std drink per hour is a good guide. just depends how its being processed :) any other food - water to go with. 

 

if wines have anything added, they'd need to declare them, it could be suphites, sulphites are naturally occurring in wine, but any added (220-228) and need to be declared over limits,

The thing that causes damage to the human body in alcoholic drinks is the alcohol :ph34r:

 

I'm eating well in the first half of the day, and even nibbling on sunflower seeds and having a glass of water with a spoon full of organic Broccoli powder among other more healthy things, It's in the evenings where I get cravings for potato chips and Allen's Chicos while gaming that brings me undone :S

That's debatable. There's as much research showing it's good for you as bad (in moderation.) When research is that divided it's very hard to draw any conclusions in spite of bold news headlines declaring one or the other.

Try eating a whole plate of Broccoli, I have tried and It's more difficult than I thought :lol:

 

I have never really been one for eating for pleasure unless It's crap food, not great but for some reason dark in the recesses of my noggin something makes me feel guilty eating real food for pleasure, I kid you not :)

 

I'd be happy with Astronaut food I imagine xD

I mean, a large plate of just Broccoli, a mound! of the stuff.....nothing else ;)

 

I can handle a mixed plate no worries!

 

Edit: just that a glass of liquid goes down easier.

I'm a doctor and my wife's a nutritionist and we're health and food obsessed nuts. So yeah I can understand there are plenty of other people out there just as obsessed about this stuff too.

Cool.  I haven't seen anything on positives physiologically, the thing with red wine and antioxidants is a red herring as I see it, as you get more from a small handful of berries and that is not the alcohol you are benefiting from anyway, It's included in the wine making process, very different from Alcohol being beneficial.

Yeah it's painful trawling through the alcohol research. But you'll find as much evidence that drinking straight whisky also has the same 'benefits' in other studies too, completely discounting the polyphenols and antioxidant theory. But then you'll also find as much research showing both are equally bad. So much research goes unnoticed or never cited, yet others get headlines in news all the time depending on who's conducting the study and the effort they go to to publicise their results. All I can say is the truth never changes, but the science keeps evolving. One thing we know is that most nutritional research isn't worth its weight as toilet paper, but that doesn't stop it getting headlines.
