Does My Butt Look Big In This Beer?

CHICAGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Man cannot live by beer alone – but suds can be incorporated into a healthy diet.

That’s the buzz from Bob Skilnik, author of Does My BUTT Look BIG In This Beer?: Nutritional Values Of 2,000 Worldwide Beers (Ingram).

After researching the dietary values of regular brews and popular imports – which don’t contain nutrition labels thanks to the government – Skilnik found that, “There is no bad beer, just bad beer drinkers.”

When consumed in moderation, Skilnik says beer can become part of any weight-loss diet.

That’s because the average American beer contains only 10-12 carbs, 150 calories, and no fat.

Skilnik says wheat beers are a good source of protein, though an all-suds diet could never provide enough nutrients.

He explains, “You’d have to drink 50, 12-ounce Budweisers to get enough protein for a day and 150 of them to get enough sodium!”

While most beer is okay in moderation, Skilnik did find one brew that’s so fattening, the recommended serving size is only two ounces.

Sam Adams “Utopias” beer contains 44 carbohydrates, 732 calories, and 27 percent alcohol per 12-ounce bottle.
