Day 3 - Jumped on the scales this morning and noted I had put on 700gms. At this rate, by August 1 I will have gone from 91.3kg to 101.8kg, thus pushing my BMI over 30. A BMI over 30 indicates that I will be obese. Obesity is associated with a range of health concerns, including being at an increased risk of heart disease. Awesome....
This weeks beer is the classic Emerson's Bookbinder (excuse the vessel, the publican is too tight to buy authentic glassware). This wee beauty packs a good volume of Fuggles and Riwaka hops from the Nelson region giving it great aroma, flavour and a good finish. At only 3.8%, it is your classic session beer, whereby you can have at least 12 pints and still quite confidently safely operate machinery.

Day 2 - Nothing unusual that I can tell.
According to some literature I was reading today on the health benefits of not drinking, "apparently", when you drink a pint of beer you shorten your lifespan by 9 minutes.
So according to my calculations, I died sometime in 1644.
This beer i had in Cairo in 2014, Sakara Weizen. Having just had a whip around the sand on a single humped dromedary camel, I was clearly quite parched when I ordered this "Premium Quality Wheat Beer". Tasted more like a wees beer than a wheat beer, in hindsight I think old mate guide Anubis literally filled the bottle with camel piss and resealed it without me knowing due to me apparently not tipping him enough. It does not feature in my top 5 beers of all time, however I was thirsty so I had 2.

Day 1 - lunchtime. So far heart rate normal, no sweats, shaking or anything terribly adverse. Went to the quack today and had a full WOF including bloods done so will have them redone in 31 days to see if there are any benefits. Thanks to those who have supported so far, please encourage as many as you can to get involved and supporting this great cause.
I'm going to share a beer each day, so here's a beer called Heelch 'O Hops (Heelch means "Alot" in the local Boonville language from Nth America) that I had at an outfit called Beer Belly in Thailand in 2015, 8.7% so packed a fair punch. I had 3, and needed to have a lie down and reassess.
