I know a lot of people think beer is good for you. At one time I thought so myself, especially after reading the so-called studies that proved beer was … wonderful.
I no longer believe such studies. Instead, I rely on what my body teaches me – and what I’ve learned from some chi kung masters in China – as well as a couple highly adept men right here in the U.S. of A.
And what I’ve learned may shock the living bejeebers out of you. Before I continue let me state that if you are under the age of 21, this message does not apply to you. Also, if you are 100% against the consumption of any type of alcohol, for any reason whatsoever, I understand. What I am about to say is not advice. It is simply some “insider knowledge” that I and a few other people happen to know.
Okay, onward and upward:
Essentially, there are some forms of alcohol that CAN improve your health and help you live a longer, happier and healthier life. On the other side of the fence, there are a LOT of alcohols – i.e. MOST, that harm your body, your health and your life.
I define bad alcohols as those that make you fat, those that weaken your kidneys (that would be beer), those that decrease sex drive (beer again), those that dump a ton of sugar into your system, those that harm your liver, reverse the flow of qi in your body, and so on.
Beer, whether it be “light” or regular – whether cold or warm – whether brewed in Ireland, Canada, the U.S. or China – it NOT good for you.
Yes, I know a lot of people will immediately jump up and say, “I agree. It’s red wine that you need. Red wine is loaded with anti-oxidants and it’s the only alcohol proven to extend your life if you limit your intake to two glasses per day.”
Well, what if you have diabetes? You think red wine is good for that health condition? Don’t think so.
And what if you want to lose weight? You think red wine is going to curb insulin levels and help control your appetite? Don’t think so.
In Combat Abs I wrote that every overweight person I ever trained who drank wine daily – and would not give it up – did NOT lose weight. And it mattered not if it was red wine, white wine or a reasonable facsimile thereof.
As for Fure-cat, the only kind of red wine he can drink is “dry” red wine. Anything else causes a major insulin spike, followed by me crashing on the sofa for several hours. It contributes zilcho to a “romantic” dinner. Knocks me completely out. Last time I had a glass I was next to worthless for about six hours.
On the other hand, there are some alchohols that, if consumed in moderation – and by moderation I mean a couple drinks per day, can literally open up the meridians of the body and increase the qi flow. They can also contribute to reduction in bodyfat, increased sex drive, increased aerobic endurance and greater physical strength. These alcohols may also contribute to a longer life – not to mention a happier one.
I’ll have more on this subject in the future, if you’d like. Let me know if you find this subject of great interest.
Without a doubt there will be some who are “mad as hell” about what I’ve just written – and for them, all I can say is, “This is Matt Furey – RAW and Uncensored.”
Last of all, I am not telling you to go out and drink up after reading this. Afterall, what you choose to drink could be harming you far more than you realize. If you’re going to drink something, you owe it to yourself to discover the “good” spirits – as well as find out how to use them in a good, safe and healthy way.
Kick butt-take names!
