In wine there is truth
In beer there is strength
In water there is bacteria
(Not said by Ben Franklin, in spite of what you might have heard.)
I mean, why bother? Why would you torture yourself with the false panacea that is light beer?
Switching to light beer to lose some weight is not going to help.
That's because it's all the other crap you're eating while you're drinking beer. The chips, the pretzels, the pizza, the pork rinds, the wings...that's where the calories are.
Do some math. Let's take the rated calorie value of their best-rated light beer. It's 120 calories. Your average IPA from an American Craft Brewer will run between 180 and 220 calories (or so). Let's just say 200 calories.
The idea is to reduce your caloric intake, right? So after four watered-down tasteless beers instead of the delicious hoppy beers, you will have saved around 320 calories. That's just enough for a McDonald's cheeseburger (300 calories). Not a McDouble. Not a Big Mac. A cheeseburger.
It would also be enough to counter two servings of Lay's potato chips. (I mean, who eats just one serving (15 chips)?) Or one slice of cheese pizza.
Put it another way, by having one less slice of pizza, you can have a delicious craft brewed beer and be ahead on your calorie count. By not having that bag of chips, you can have three delicious craft beers and still be ahead.
Don't fall for the mega-brewer marketing machine crap.
