Healthy Beer…

Taste buds: neutral.... Belly fat: lowest

While miller lite may not be the best tasting beer in the world, it is however the healthiest. With a mere 3.2g of carbs and only 96 calories per 12oz it is, without a doubt the healthiest beer to still have at least 4.2% alc per beer. Other beers with 60sh calories dilute the beer to under 3% per 12oz. Heavy beers have slightly upwards of 5% alcohol for reference. So if you want the highest amount of alcohol with lowest amount of beer belly….. choose miller lite

For all you fools out there, carbs are the most important part of this equation. All beers are going to have a similar amount of calories, but can vastly differ in the amount of carbs. If you have not heard of the atkins diet, basic concept is; you can eat as much fat as you want, however if you do not take in any carbs you will still lose weight. For reference, again, Miller 3.2g carbs…. bud light has 6.6g… aka… half the carbs.
If you drink alot, might as well do it without the beer belly

Lastly, but not least…

The drinks to healthiness ratio is a J curve.  If you have one to three drinks ((beer or wine(not hard alcohol), though wine has more antioxidents)) per day it is a healthy amount.  Anything above three and you enter the unhealthy zone.  The more and more you drink, the worse it is for your body.

For men: Two drinks a day=healthy.  Three drinks=neutral.

For women: One drink a day=healthy.  Two drinks=neutral.

    I have to definitely agree with this post. I was under the false mindset with the recent Bud Select 55 and MGD 64 that they were beers, just healthier. After reading an “Eat This, Not That!” newsletter about the best and worst beers for your health last week, I was amazed to see that they only have half the alcoholic percentage of a regular Bud Light or MGD. At least Miller Lite doesn’t make any false promises, it is still a beer and tastes like a beer, while remaining relatively healthy. The rest are just watered down light beers.
