Beer has always been a popular beverage around the world but as much as you would like to down more than two bottles of it, you might want to consider the amount of carbs you are taking into your system. You might have seen people battling with their beer belly after drinking too much in their lifetime. This is because when you drink beer you are consuming about 150 calories per bottle. The number of calories will depend on the type of beer that you are drinking too.
So, what are the top five best-selling beers that are actually making you fat every time you drink them?
- Steel Reserve 211 – This will give you a monster of a headache especially with its high alcohol content. What you don’t know that it contains 40 oz of carbohydrates that will add to your middle if you are not too careful with what you are drinking.
- Blue Moon – This is another popular choice by many since it tastes great on the palate. Unfortunately, it contains calories similar to that of a medium sized potato. It appears that this doesn’t bother many Americans since they can still be seen guzzling down this brand of beer whenever they can.
- Pabst Blue Ribbon – A lot of hipsters love this drink but most of them will be sporting a heavier middle. This drink contains about 12 grams of carbohydrates with 153 calories. Not many love the taste of Pabst but there are still those who will store them in their refrigerator for a quick drink.
- Miller High Life – Another brand of beer that won’t do your gut any good. 13 grams of carbohydrates plus 143 calories? You can do the math.
