It’s been a while since I posted. We put our home up for sale last year, and we just now sold it and it’s been crazy trying to find a new one. We weren’t really looking because we got bummed out about the crappy housing market conditions, thinking it would be Spring before we sold. Low and behold two offers came in on the same day. And now we are scrambling. But that’s ok because it sold.
So anyway, I won’t be posting much over the next month, but I did want to address the fact that many people have resolved to lose weight in the new year, and one of the things people cut out his beer intake. So I thought, I’m going to look up my favorite imports and see how they compare to the domestic light beers, which many beer drinkers turn to when trying to drop the pounds, or stones, depending on where you are from. Here’s what I found:
Guinness Draught: 110
New Castle: 150
Here’ very popular domestic:
Bud Light: 109
Coors Light: 102
Miller Light: 96
Corona Light: 105
So, not much difference, but remember light beers contain 5-6 grams of carbohydrates, while non-light beer contains around 10-12 grams. So, more alcohol means more calories. Oh, the darkness of beer has nothing to with calories.
Good luck with your resolutions if you have any!
