Cheers! Time to sip a beer and feel better

I know, I know, you still might be hurt by me saying “don’t eat candies, don’t drink soda!”, so let’s talk about beer and lift our mood!🍺 I know, beer is not on a healthy list, but we also want to balance happiness and health, right? Of course, you can be happy without beer, but so many people loooove beer. So instead of saying “don’t drink”, this time I want to play it on a more positive note and let you know what beer is the best for you, if you want to have a drink!
Normally beer from microbreweries are the best, because it is more natural, but it is more expensive. Nonetheless, I would put microbreweries beer on the top of the list, until they will grow big and will start slacking. Then goes European beers: German, Czech – Europeans are stricter about their food and drinks. They have many more bans for harmful ingredients, then we have here, in USA.
If you don’t want to look for some special beer and want just to grab something popular in America (beer you can find even at 7/11 or Walmart), then I have a good tip for you! What you need to look for (aside from consuming too much of alcohol) is a high fructose corn syrup and GMOs. Cheaper beer from big companies usually is filled with them. Look at this list:

  •  Budweiser — which contains genetically modified rice
  •  Corona Extra — GMO corn syrup and propylene glycol
  •  Miller Lite — GMO corn and corn syrup
  •  Michelob Ultra — genetically modified sweetener
  •  Coors Lite — GMO corn syrup
  •  Pabst Blue Ribbon — GMO corn and GMO corn syrup

(original article for this ^ is here )
So, if you want to make a choose that supposedly better, choose Heineken. It doesn’t have a corn syrup, easy to find and it isn’t expensive.
I also saw that “Guinness dark” on a healthy beer list. Yes, it doesn’t have many calories, and it has a very nice taste, but (link here) it “contains isinglass, an ingredient which comes from the fish bladder”, and it is questionable if it is a good thing for a human body. They also used to add fructose corn syrup, but not any longer, so you can add it to your card.
And lastly – don’t forget that beer shouldn’t be exposed to the sun rays, so darker bottles are better (angry look at the Heineken). If bottles are in the box, it doesn’t matter much though, just don’t leave them out on the kitchen top-counter. Cheers and make a sip of cold and tasty beer!
Conclusion: beer in moderate quantity is not that bad for you, as long as it doesn’t have a corn syrup in it. It is also doesn’t really make you fat, and why is that – I will explain in the next article.🍻😋

Get some tissues, we will talk about sugar!

🍩 🙅 This is probably the most important, but also painful topic for many people. Sugar is your enemy. It is an enemy for your waist, at least. Why people are fatter nowadays (no offense, but fat is just a word that defines… well, fat. If you have more of it, then you fatter, then somebody who has less of it. Simple), then they used to be? Yes, less physical activity, but researches show that consuming sugar is the biggest factor here. If you have enough willpower to eliminate most of the sugar from your diet, you will be slimmer and healthier in no time! Yes, healthier too, because sugar is not good for your liver, might cause diabetes and even cancer. For people who is interested in more details, you can take a look at this article here, which is one of MANY examples of how bad sugar can be.
Now, now, did you start crying already? There is some good news too – of course, you can have some sugar *pat on a shoulder*. If you really want a candy or a chocolate bar, have it during the first half of the day. The earlier, the better and try to never eat sugar after 4 p.m. That is when our body normally start to store sugars, instead of burning it. However, you still can’t have a lot, because sugar is added almost in EVERY thing that you can buy at the store: souses, canned goods, fruit juices and even some of cooked meats. Unless you cook everything from a scratch at home, you will never be free of sugar, so you need to consume sweets as little, as possible. By the way, consider not to eat any of those sugar containing meals for dinners too! And yes, you heard it before, but I will repeat: soda, like Coke or Fanta are the worst! I really would recommend to eliminate this products from your diet FOR-EV-AH. I am serious. Pure liquid sugar – is doesn’t hydrate and leaves a nasty aftertaste in your mouth. Get a sizzling water instead!
Okay, now some of you might have dry your tears and tell me with a smile, that there are “zero sugar drinks!” or diet Coke…. No! NO, NO, NO, and NO one more time! It is even worse!!! Why you think it is sweet? Not because it is so healthy and doesn’t have any sugar. It doesn’t contain a real sugar, it contains chemical substitute – aspartame, which your body does not recognize. What does it mean? It cannot make anything useful of it, so it just stores those chemicals in your body as fat and increase your risk to get diabetes and cancer in times! There are more harm to it, so if you are interested, you can read this article. Read until the end though! (P.s. I love Nerd Fitness. I am part of Nerd Fitness Academy myself.)
Conclusion: real sugar in smallest amounts and only before 4 p.m. is your best bet, if you can’t stop consuming sugar whatsoever. However, stop drinking soda, even diet or zero calories one, because it is terrible for you. Just terrible. Period.🙅🍩
