The popularity of low carb diets such as South Beach and Atkins means that low carb foods and beverages are commonly available in grocery stores and restaurants. Some of these diet foods fall flat and others balance taste and nutrition wonderfully. Beer is no exception and there are a number of low carb beers on the market. Although beer is not usually considered figure friendly, these versions contain fewer calories and carbs than traditional beer. Here are five popular low carb beers to sample as you search for the perfect beer to please your palate as you watch your waistline.
A 12-ounce serving of Amstel Light has 95 calories and five grams of carbs.
With 99 calories and 3.1 grams of carbs, Bud Select is great choice for dieters.
A serving of Coors Light has 102 calories and 5 grams of carbs.
It is only fitting that the star of those beach commercials has a light variety. Corona Light has 109 calories and five grams of carbs.
Miller Lite is a popular brand dieters and non-dieters alike. With only 3.2 grams of carbs, Miller Lite is a great choice for South Beach or Atkins dieters.
Smart Shopping Tips for Buying Low Carb Beer
Take a minute to read the labels and find diet-friendly beer. The label may say low carb, light or lite, but those terms are subjective. Actually read the nutrition label to see the calorie count and carb load per serving.
Keep in mind that low carb and light beers have a slightly different taste and consistency than traditional beers. Do not buy a case of beer if you have not already tried that variety.
A good way to try different brands is at parties or a friend’s house. You can also buy single servings when you are dining out.
Ask other dieters for their reviews and recommendations. They can give you the best advice and let you know where to buy a certain brand in your neighborhood.
Once you convert, stick to drinking a light beer. The subtle difference in taste will become glaringly obvious if you alternate between traditional and light or low carb beers.
Sticking to a low carb diet is easier than ever thanks to the mass availability of diet-friendly foods. Shop around and try different brands to find a great replacement for your regular brand.
