Beer: Regular versus light

With the Super Bowl this weekend and New Year’s resolutions still on the mind, you may want to consider your drink of choice. Many game day drinks have more calories than you think. Budweiser and Coors Banquet beer contain 145 and 149 calories respectively.

Instead, try enjoying a light beer. Bud Light contains only 110 calories per 12 fluid ounces and Coors Light has 102 calories. The amounts may not seem that significant between regular and light beer, but depending on how many you drink, the differences can add up.

With more people thinking about their calories when they drink, beer companies have added several lines that are under 100 calories. Bud Select 55, Miller 64 and Miller 64 Lemonade are just a few brands that advertise a low calorie content.
