Milk Or Beer?
Milk is good for you, right? I was pouring myself a glass of milk a couple of nights ago and noticed that on the carton is says that milk has 120 calories in an 8 oz serving. That works out to 180 calories for a 12 oz glass -- the size of a standard bottle of beer.
The average beer has about 150 calories per bottle. They range all over the place with light beers being around 100 calories and "real", heavier beers approach 200+ calories. If you want more details, check out here.
Given a choice, I would rather drink a bottle of beer than a large glass of milk. I now have additional incentive to drink the beer. It will save me calories.
Beer -- the new diet drink.
