Ribbit: Is that wine good for milk production? A little alcohol is supposed to help. That's what you can tell all your ><>y friends.

RL: Congrats on switching to the gum. I know that smoking is hard to quit.  My husband saw his dad smoking a lot & didn't want to be like that, but he smoked from age 21 to 30! Then he had trouble breathing or something like that & quit. He chewed regular gum for a while after that when I got to know him. That was ages ago as he is now 67!

ABNW: How wonderful to get off the bad habits. It's tough, but you had divine help!

Bottoms up!

Here's a new question for Nomads: What do you think about hard apple cider? Beneficial? Neutral? Avoid? I found some on sale today while shopping for a new 6 pack. I'd never had it so I picked up a test pack.

Hi GCG,

I tried hard apple cider about 10 years ago. It became my drink for the weekends. I forgot the name but it was in a green bottle and very full bodied and very good.

Unfortunately I became very "full bodied" after and gained about 10 lbs. . So, I had to cut back and start exercising. I think the weight gain is different for men/women.  I had other weight gaining habits going on at that time too, so it wasn't exclusively the drink.

I haven't had any in a long time. Please let us know how it works out after a week or so.

More thoughts on beer.  So... when we started this thread about 1.5 month ago was when I started to crack open the Genotype Diet book and give 'er a look.  

I haven't really wanted to because I've been doing so well on the BTD that I didn't want to mess myself up.  But then I noticed beer as a diamond! !

No but seriously, at that time I did decide to cut out all other alchohol(a margarita or lemon-drop martini) or wine and only drink a beer with lime when socializing.  

I should add that I am not a drinker per se. I've seen the damage of alcoholism like others have posted in this thread probably more than anyone I know. It really is a degree thing and an individual decision making process you must go through. You must have control over yourself and set boundaries when dealing with alcoholic beverages.

Also, I am only elaborating on beer or wine as opposed to any other Nomad beverage because they have the added alcohol & age limitation component which makes them more socially complicated.  

So having said that... I can report that beer was pretty neutral for me over the course of say 1 month of drinking 2 beers with lime per week. I haven't noticed any weight loss or gain, nor any health benefits/deficits.

I do not have any other factors to consider either like smoking or drug use (illegal or prescription). The only consumption that I have to consider is a pretty compliant BTD and nightly magnesium 200mg.  

I do notice ill health after any liquor or white wine. (headaches)  I am going to cut them out completely from now on.  Socially I will only be having a beer with lime or a glass of red wine, if I choose to drink alcohol.  

side note: I notice increased energy after drinking red wine. I usually have to exercise after say...1/4 of a glass of red wine.  I drink it out of a red wine glass and only pour 1/2 of a glass.  I had to pour some out last time because 1/2 of a glass was too much.  

My beer recommendations (all with lime/juice):
1st: Dos Equis (green label)
2nd: Sol
3rd: Corona    

My red wine recommendations:
1st: Meritus Cabernet Sauvignon (expensive)-Texas
2nd: Smoking Loon Cabernet Sauvignon (affordable)-California
3rd: Redwood Creek Cabernet Sauvignon (affordable)-California

My beer recommendations may change as I learn more about brewing and the ingredients added to the many different beers. I am going to look for books about beer brewing at the library and start reading them this summer.  So I will continue to add information as I get it.

Hi ABnoway,

I wonder if that is a difference between B/AB?  yeah..many of the avoids on the Nomad list do really good for me too.  So it looks like there is some tweaking for all types.

I'm sorry for using a somewhat racial slurr.  It is not meant to be derrogatorry to people that live in Mexico.  We just called it that from drinking too much mexican beers.  It usually did it to me though whenever I drank mostly corona's.  Too many.  But man they taste really good!!!

And Lola, if I was your husband, I would lock your daughter up and throw away the key until she's about 40.  You must have boys calling your home all the time.    When they come over, hopefully your husband has a nice gun collection to show them.  

Like mother like daughter.

Paola takes pretty good care of herself!
like I said before, she s an old soul, guess she had been around in other lives.

it s the women in her path who give her a hard time, or at least try!!
but she s a tough cookie!

29's not that old to have a kid.  I was 28 I believe when I had my first and 30 when I had my second.  At the time I still felt pretty darn young.  I was a pretty immature 18-22 year old though.  It was good that I didn't have them young.  Now my Mom was 19 when she had my sister and 21 when she had me.  DANG!

Oh yeah, I forgot that little tidbit.  Hehehheehhehehe  But Lola, I know we don't go through what you go through, but it aint easy on us either.  I'm usually a nervous wreck and I get really really worried about something going wrong.  It's very stressful to me.  I'm usually totally mentally wiped out after it happens, and to be honest, I don't think I could make it through a delivery right now the way I feel.  I think I'd pass out.  It didn't help that both of ours we had to leave in the middle of the night too and wasnt' born until the next day.  The first one was like ALL next day and the next one was quicker.  But still grueling.

During the Delivery?  My wife had been too busy squeezing every once of blood out of my hand.  And I'd have to keep telling her to breathe!!!!!!  That poor gal.

I think it's better for the kids & parents to get kiddies earlier than 30 years old...why ...so they can grow together  

here we can observe that parents become older and older just for their first child...hmmm I don't think that this is a good option....btw...ok I agree, my mother got her first child at 17 and then I'll lurked around at her 18th's year.....that's a bit toooooo young...
huh   .......

hmm I don't think that my B Rh- mum loved beer that much...merely white wine....so do I prefere the irish stout...dry medicine-like in taste....but not tooooo often

ha ha, good one Lola!
Listen you lucky B's....good beer is awesome! I cannot drink it, I balloon up, but I have one  about once a year whether I need it or not......yummm.
I enjoy most liquor, but definitely try to avoid margaritas,they are made with corn syrup, (in some cases)....or just too much sugar. I love good bourbon, but it is not good for you, I like brandy, calvados (apple brandy), vodka, etc.
HOWEVER.........only beer and wine are authorized by Dr. D.
DH makes wine, and very good wine, too......I have learned to be mindful in my use of these powerful substances, and I don't use any other drugs.
