Beer on a Diet

It seems I always know someone that is on a diet, this usually happens after the Christmas season where everyone has had too much turkey and Christmas treats. Do I have great news for you!! You don’t' need to give up your lagers entirely while watching your waistline, just a change in drink.

There are many low calorie beverages out there. And I have compiled a list of my top 3 low-cal beers. Try them out let me know what you think, or if there is something I should try let me know.

Guinness Draught
Contrary to popular opinion, a dark color doesn't necessarily indicate a high calorie count. And while Guinness has more than twice as many calories as the lowest-calorie beer on the market, it's also much more filling. I’m sure you’ve heard it referred to as a “meal in a glass.” One 12-ounce serving delivers a buzz that's nearly on par with one regular beer, making it a dieter's best bet.

Bud Light
This triple-filtered premium light beer's packaging is super cute ~ blue! and its alcohol content (high!). "Drinking it will make you look cool at the club." For a satisfying bite without the typical bitterness of heavier beers, we say go blue!
STATS: 137 CAL / 4.4 CARBS / 6% ABV

Sam Adams Light (not available in Canada)

This one scored highest marks overall among the taste testers. It's a darker beer with a rich, nutty flavor and a scent akin to multigrain bread. The tasters agreed that this brew's bitterness is just right and "what beer should be".
STATS: 119 CAL / 9.6 CARBS / 4% ABV
