So the devil is in the details. And unfortunately, there are very few details available. Fernstrom told me when I related the sketchy bits of information about the beer diet I could find. As with all diets, Dr. Fernstrom recommends consulting with a health professional first, but my guess is that people who are interested in the beer diet never will, as it would most certainly be a buzzkill. Despite her feelings about the beer diet, Dr. Fernstrom thinks having a beer or two while watching your weight is a perfectly sensible thing to do.
So here's my advice: don't be a moron. Try to live your life in balance. Drink a beer. Eat delicious, balanced meals more often than not. Get your body moving most days.

You can avoid the beer bugs, by drinking wine. Wine only includes the wine fairies, these just make you a woman. For a man to drink wine, the ultimate effect is that eventually you will develop a vagina. Moreover, spirits will not do you much harm, unless you encounter the spirit snake which causes you to loose your memory and is related to some cases of alzheimers disease.
So the moral of the story is to not drink unless you're a woman drinking wine. This is fine. I eat 2 lean pockets any variety after drinking. I workout one time a day and rollerblade every other day.
