Summary of calories in beer!

  1. During a summer barbecue or a cozy evening watching football on the couch, a bottle of beer is an essential part of the fun. Unfortunately, the many calories in beer make it a less appealing drink for someone trying to monitor their weight and health…

  1. But not all beer is the same, and some types contain significantly more or less calories than others. In today's blog we look at how many calories are in different types of beer, and what that means for the place the drink has in your diet!

Calories in beer

  1. Beer is a relatively high-calorie drink; for example, it provides more energy than most soft drinks. That's because beer consists not only of sugars, but also of alcohol. While sugar, like all carbohydrates, provides 4 kcal per gram, alcohol with 7 kcal per gram still scores a lot higher.

  1. In general, therefore, beer with a higher alcohol percentage provides more calories. In the supermarket you often find so-called 'light beers', and these are indeed the types that contain relatively little alcohol: less than 3.5%.

Calories are not the only factor

  1. Before we look further into the exact calorie content of different types and brands of beer, it is important to note that the energy that the drink provides is not the only is that makes it healthy or unhealthy. Ultimately, beer is not unhealthy because of the number of calories it contains, but mainly because of the disruptive effect that alcohol has on your body.

  1. In the short term, booze will make you gain weight faster; after all, your body is busy breaking down all those harmful substances, so that the processing of the other nutrients is temporarily stopped. In addition, alcohol consumption can disrupt your hormone balance in the long term, which also does not benefit your figure.

Calories in different types of beer

  1. Too much beer is not a good idea - but the occasional bottle doesn't have to be a problem, as long as you are aware of what the drink is doing to your body and how you can best deal with this. Don't forget to include the calories in your drink in your daily energy balance!

  1. Most normal beers that you will find in the supermarket in the Netherlands contain between 120 kcal and 135 kcal per bottle. A few popular brands:

  1. Calories in normal beer: (per 30 cl bottle)

  1. Special beers contain, because of the higher percentage of alcohol, a little more calories, between 175 kcal and 280 kcal per bottle. A few well-known brands:

  1. Calories in special beer: (per 33Â cl bottle)

  1. As you can see, it ticks up quickly in terms of calories when you go out for a night. What you can do is alternate a glass of beer or combine it with water or spa red. This way you automatically get a lot less calories.

What about radler?

  1. Radler â € “beer with fruit juice â €“ has been on the rise in recent years. It contains less alcohol than regular beer, thanks to the juice, and has a nice fruity taste. Still, radler is generally not much better for you than regular beer.

  1. This is mainly because the sweet fruit juice contains a lot of sugars, and sugars are simply not a very healthy ingredient! All those extra carbohydrates also ensure that radler contains about as many calories as regular beer (126 kcal per 300 ml), despite the lower alcohol percentage.

Is non-alcoholic beer healthy?

  1. How many calories in beer contains, as mentioned, partly depends on the alcohol percentage. For that reason, non-alcoholic beer is often a lot 'slimmer' than the variants that do contain alcohol! In addition, non-alcoholic beer usually contains less carbohydrates than normal beers, which further reduces the amount of energy supplied.

  1. A final advantage is that with alcohol-free you can easily bypass the disruptive effects of alcohol, so that your body is better able to process the calories you consume. Although the taste can take some getting used to, it is definitely worth going for a 0% beer.

  2. A final advantage is that alcohol-free easily bypasses the disruptive effects of alcohol, so that your body is better able to process the calories you consume. Although the taste can take some getting used to, it is certainly worthwhile to try a 0% beer.
