The best Beer Drinker’s diet so far!

b2bb46f0762e372cb34d8edc695df11aWe have been struggling with our weight as a result of our passion for Craft Beer.  We have been on several diets, swallowed some pills, injected ourselves with stuff, did some exercise, did a LOT of exercise but somehow we could still not shed the extra kilos we would put on over weekends. Tasting beer and writing about it is the flame that feeds our souls. We can not change that!

As I sat and work one day, I became aware of the battle for my office chair. My left bum-cheek was taking more of the chair than the right one, which as a result, got cross and pushed my back-fat up my spine! THAT WAS IT! WE MUST LOOSE WEIGHT!!

I remembered when I was young we followed a 3 day diet to quickly loose a few kilos before an event. Google is my friend and VIOLA! I found the heart foundation 3 day diet along with all the nay-Sayers that has nothing good to say about the diet at all!  We’ve been following it religiously for 3 days a week over the last four weeks and have LOST weight while still having LONG weekends, drinking beer! For the 3 days, we only drink water, black coffee and diet cooldrink.

Here is the diet we follow:


Black Coffee or tea with low fat sweetener
1/2 grapefruit
1 slice of toast with 1tbsp peanut butter
1/2 a cup of tuna
1 slice of toast
Black coffee/tea/water*

1 cup of green beans
1 cup of carrots
1 cup of vanilla ice cream
