Of course you want six-pack abs… not just because it looks good but because the size of your midsection is often a strong indicator of your overall health and fitness level – and how well you’re likely to be aging. Carry less around your middle and you want just look younger, you’ll feel younger too. Your body will oxygenate blood more efficiently, sleep better, and have more energy if you ditch those extra pounds around the belly.
And yet, you’re just not ready to give up your beers with the guys or during the game. Does it mean you have to switch to a Ultra Light beer? The answer may surprise you. As it turns out, darker brewed beers typically have fewer calories than their blonder counterparts. On average, dark beers can contain between 10% and 15% fewer than lighter-colored brews not specifically labeled as “light.” Now, that doesn’t mean these brews are guilt free; simply that if you’re not going to give them up or make the switch to “low calorie” beers that you don’t have to sacrifice full-bodied flavor. Now that’s something you can drink to!
