By the book – Regular brewed beer?

What every man wants to know! How to enjoy their favorite brew without getting the unfavorable belly.

1st Books announces The Drink Beer, Get Thin Diet: A Low Carbohydrate Approach, by Bob Skilnik. This guide to low carbohydrate living is unique in its observance of a weight reduction program that includes the moderate consumption of both light and regular brewed beers. The book features more than 350 beers and their carbohydrate counts from over 50 worldwide breweries, making this book a sound guide for both social drinkers and bar regulars to refer to when indecision hits in the liquor aisle. “Until this book, beer drinkers watching their carb intake were limited to light beers,” says author and beer expert Bob Skilnik. “After all, nutritional information is only provided on light beers, mandated as such by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. My extensive research in writing The Drink Beer, Get Thin Diet, however, proves that beer drinkers following a low carbohydrate regime can enjoy virtually all beers, from standard American pilsners to imports and even richer microbrewed beers.”

A freelance writer from the Chicago area, Skilnik has written for the Chicago Tribune, Collector Magazine, the American Breweriana Association’s Journal and the National Association of Breweriana Advertising’s Breweriana Collector. He is a certified brewer and an expert in beer, brewing history and breweriana collectibles. He is also a featured columnist in The Tap, a newspaper of Chicago bar and saloon culture. The Drink Beer, Get Thin Diet: A Low Carbohydrate Approach ( is his third book.
