One of the things this diet taught me a lot about was how alcohol can play a role in ruining a diet. It is not a diet really, more of a "how to" guide to nutrition. I bought this book at a yard sale, after looking through it for a couple minutes, and I read it over the course of two days. I learned how everything you eat and drink should be done in moderation. This diet teaches that moderation plays a huge part in dieting correctly. Everything we eat that is bad should be done only a little. This diet did not give me a strict outline of what to eat, when to eat it, and how much to eat. It more taught me the benefits of choosing wisely and how to feel better about myself while dieting. The title of the diet can give a bit of a false perception, but it is more just to catch someone's attention. It definitely caught mine and I am really glad that I read The Beer Drinker's Diet book. It had helped me even when I have tried other diets. I refer back to this book occasionally for advice. I would recommend purchasing this book and trying this diet. It is a definite pick me up for serial dieters like me who have trouble sticking to one specific diet.
