THIRSTY THURSDAY – Beer!

If your drink of choice is beer, here are a few facts you may not have known. So beware when you are ordering!

Low-Carb is not as “healthy” as the packaging and marketing would have you believe. Beer already contains low levels of carbohydrates (the average beer contains only 2 per cent carbohydrate (sugars) by volume, or 7.5 grams in a 375-millilitre can) compared to soft drinks/soda that contain 40 grams (eight teaspoons) of sugar in every 375-millilitre can.

Low-carb beers contain the same level of alcohol as regular beers, and the alcohol is where the kilojoule (calorie) come from, contributing to 75 per cent of the total calories

So if you really want to curb the calories, order ”light” beer not low carb beer!
