If you're trying to lose weight and still drink...those 'light' beers I keep seeing on TV would be the way to go, some only have ~75 calories, etc.

Hard cider will have a lot of calories, as will lager, between the carbs and the sugars in cider, it's going to be as bad, or worse....sure, there are more nutrients in it, but you're not going to save on overall calorie intake choosing cider over a lager.

I know, it's girlie, but if you're going for low calorie drinks, choose a light beer.

Does Drinking vinegar shrink your stomach?

ANSWER #3 of 9

Carling has the lower calorific content = 187kCal per pint, compared to
Strongbow which has calorific content = 239kCal per pint.

An 8 pint session on Carling will add 1496 kCal to your nutritional intake for the day, causing you to put on an extra 166 g of flab (about 0.37lb)
.
An 8 pint session on Strongbow will add 1912 kCal to your nutritional intake for the day, causing you to put on an extra 212 g of flab (about 0.47lb).
.
It will take only 3 hours of jogging to burn off the fat due to one 8 pint session of Carling, compared to 4 hours of jogging if you drink the same amount of Strongbow.
.
I recommend that if you HAVE TO drink that much in one session, you limit yourself to a once per week blowout on Carling and add half an hour of jogging to your daily workout schedule on the other six days of the week, in order to prevent your weight rising until it forces you to burn any further increase in weight simply by the effort you expend in moving your enormous bulk around between bars.

least fattening alcohol???
ANSWER #4 of 9

I'm more of a quality than quantity oriented person when it comes to alcohol. You live in England where there are so many lovely ales so why the heck are you drinking lager? I'd rather kick back 1 nice ESB than a case of insipid lite beer.

8 imperial pints of even a low calorie beer like Michelob Ultra comes out to 1,266 kcal. If you want to get drunk hard liquor is going to get you there with a lot fewer calories than any beer or wine. 7 shots of 100 proof whiskey is the same amount of alcohol only about 850 kcal. I'm partial to Irish whiskey to drink straight up but gin or vodka is less likely to give you a hangover.

How does cranberry juice help you lose weight?

ANSWER #7 of 9

yh thanks i drink bud when i have mates round


ANSWER #8 of 9

Yeah cheers mate. - I also enjoy a good session from time to time, but I make sure I exercise it all off again as soon as possible. Be warned - it gets harder as you get older. Make sure you control the alcohol so it brightens your life rather than ruining it. Never let the alcohol start to control you. -
All the best - Majikthise.
