Beer calories is not something most drinkers are most likely to think about before they drink. Did you know that alcohol has little if no nutrients at all. To top this, it has a lot of calories. Many of our teenagers today drink excessively. No wonder why cases of childhood obesity are on the rise. College students are not off the hook either.
They are also another group of people who drink like it's going out of fashion, with parties going on just about every weekend. An important thing to note is that beer can cause you to gain weight.
And this kind of weight gain can lead to obesity or being overweight, and gaining weight comes with a lot of health issues. You may learn about some of them in the article dangers of childhood obesity.
To get the total amount of beer calories you are packing into your body, simply multiply the number of beers you have had by the calories of each bottle. Imagine drinking six bottles a day of 12 ounces light beer which has about 110 calories or 12 ounces regular beer which has 150 calories.
That's a whooping 550 calories or 750 calories respectively from your daily calorie needs. So if you are on a 1800 calorie diet that will already be almost half, or half if you take the regular beer, of your calories for the day.
This means that chances of you eating healthy are greatly narrowed. So the result will definitely be serious weight gain, and not forgetting that beer belly! According to researchers, 125 liters or 33 gallons of alcohol are consumed each year per person in the United States alone, for those age 18 years going up! And this was just 5 years ago. So surely by now with the way things stand it's more than that, shockingly and sadly so.
A few facts about drinking alcohol:
When it comes to beer, generally there are three types which are sold. These are regular, light and non-alcoholic. Light beer has less alcohol and fewer beer calories as compared to regular beer. They are often around 102-115 calories.
Non-alcoholic beer is intended for people who desire little or no alcohol and therefore has less than a half percent of alcohol. Regular beer has about 5% alcohol and 43 beer calories per 100ml or about 150 calories per 355ml. Darker beer such as cream ales and stouts can have as many as 205 beer calories in just 355ml, that is 12 ounces.
