Following on from a different post,what are your views on Guinness?
Yes for iron. Personally i think ill try a couple of glasses in a few weeks and see does it make a difference to my energy levels.
I am thinking the same but I read that its only a myth about the iron in it..is this true...would anyone like to take the challenge and ring Guinness'es for the true facts????????
here you go missus.
It's still got alcohol in it so not advised medically anymore. It's like they say red wine is good for circulation too.
Having said that, I think if you fancy one go for it !
[b:1q0fxcds]Pregnant women and nursing mothers were at one stage advised to drink Guinness - the present advice is against this[/b:1q0fxcds]
Ah feck...there's always something
never did my mam any harm on the 4 of us - she said she had a few halves during each pregnancy!
Well it depends - in my sisters case she couldn't absorb iron - always been a problem but got worse when she was pregnant, so the doctor advised her to drink a glass or two a week (if even that)
I think the way she and he looked at it was, the amount of damage that small amount of achol would do vs the benfit of the iron
I wouldn't purposely drink it for iron but if you were going to drink anything at all, I'd say stick to Guinness or red wine. I've had a small glass of red wine with a big dinner about 5 times now and felt really guilty but it does really relax me when I'm stressed, which can't be a bad thing. In an ideal world I suppose I wouldn't touch a drop alcohol for the full 9 months (or eat coleslaw or drink coffee).
Slightly off the main topic, but on alcohol in general. I bought an 'alcohol free' wine the other day called Eisberg, and while its not particularly like proper wine, its not bad. However, after I'd had a couple of glasses, I noticed that it says in smaller writing on the label that 'the wine contains no more than 0.05% alcohol'. Now do you think its ok to drink this - my thoughts were that this is probably a warning they have to put onto it as they actually remove the alcohol after the wine is made, so there may be trace elements in it. I still felt a bit guilty having had two fairly big glasses though. What do you all think?
Its so horrible its always the things we want or crave...grrrr to GUILT
I hate the guilt
