Calories in Beer

Low Calorie Beer

Beer is loaded not only with calories, but with sugars that are transferred into empty calories and carbs that seem to hang onto like a spare tire.

And while it seems like a phenomenal thing to drink beer compared to the normal stuff, be warned that low calorie beer might be hazardous to your health!

The Calories in Beer not only adds unnecessary calories to an individual’s diet but the way the body processes these calories can have a detrimental effect on the body’s ability to burn fat.

Highest Calories in Beer

Low Calorie Beer Winner

Bud Select 55 at a low 55 Calories. WOW

The only reason we don’t have zero calorie beer is two reasons;
1: It costs more to produce it, more ingredients and extra processes.

2: It will not ferment with out the initial sugars.

The sugar filtering and double processing would make for a better alternative for those who drink since most beer drinkers are bingers and they wouldn’t become unhealthy by gaining weight.
They would just loose weight by loosing their livers slowly. If you didn’t process the beer with more ingredients with out sugar you would have a liqueur like gin not beer.
