come over to my house friend. I'll grill you a big juicy angus beef steak, grilled potatoes and wash it down with the King of Beers (BUD) You'll love it.

Ditto. Not much above flavored water.

I think that Michelobe ultra has only a couple grams of carbs less than miller lite, and has only about three or four calories less. From what I have read it is mainly a gimick. As for the prok rinds, I find it hard to believe that anything which is deep fried can be demed healthy.

Pork rinds and beer have an incomplete amino acid profile, so the protein you see listed on the nutrition label is useless for trying to support muscle growth. So, as far as the beer goes, you are left with carbs that cause a rapid insulin reaction. For the pork rinds, you are left with "bad" fats. I would not consider either healthy.
