  • Becks 64 calorie is very tasty.
  • I agree with KRISTABELL6 I like Budweiser Select 55 light beer. It tastes as good as some of the light beers that are over 100 calories per bottle.
  • AMGALBRAITH
    I have started drinking the Molson 67 which is pretty much the same taste as Canadian as is quite smooth. A good choice with only 67 calories per bottle. My next step is to work on portion size. That will be the bigger test.

    I like the Budweiser 55...it's really light and doesnt make me feel bloated. I dont feel so guilty when I have one either! :)

    I have been mixing vodka (2 oz.) with coke zero...I think I am going to start doing coconut rum or merlot more often. I have been over doing it though...I just need 1 serving instead of three or four.
  • I love Houlihan's and they offer "skinny" drinks; drinks with only 100 calories. I've tried them a couple of times; had to return them both times. I'll keep trying, they do have quite a few choices.
  • I've been drinking MGD 64 and putting ice in it. Not bad at all.
  • how is coconut rum lower in calories than plain old vodka? Doesn't it have flavour shots or sugar added to it to give the coconutty taste? I love coconut rum and have always avoided it except on vacation because I assumed it was high in calories!
  • Take it from a beer brewer: the color of the beer has nothing to do with the calorie content. Just the color of grain that's used!
  • @Davvik: I think they're not talking by ounce but by serving. Beer is typically served in bigger quantities than wine, as shown in the table.
  • Curious about the Hard Liquor chart??? The article says per 1 oz... the Chart says per 1.5 oz. Which on is it???
  • wait, some beer is less calories per ounce then the wine, so its more diet friendly
  • Thanks for posting the lo-cal cocktail recipes. I didn't know that they actually made sugar free syrup mixes. I can't wait to try these. :-)
  • The article is insightful. I normally drink once a week ( on the weekend) I drink whiskey or gin and chase with no sugar red bull ( 10 calories per serving). I also normally regulate what I eat.

    For Example:
    Breakfast: 2 eggs 2 pieces of Oscar Mayer bacon ( 210- 140(eggs) and 70 (2 slices of bacon)
    Lunch: Ham or Turkey sandwhich: normally runs around 300 calories) and a fruit
    Dinner: Boneless skinless chicken breast: around 150 cal a veggie and mashpotatoes ( another 200 cals at the most) = 350
    So my calorie intake for the day is 900 calories roughly.

    Then I drink at 80 cals a drink and have about 4-5 shots = 400 calories. So I am at 1300 calories.

    I don't know if this is the way you are supposed to do it. But I eat 3 meals that day and drink a lot of liquor. I don't drink beer or mixed drinks.
  • Should have said incomplete not irrelevant because if this helps any of you then it is obviously not irrelevant.
