Lose weight With A Glass Of Beer

By Suparna Chakaraborthy
Beer, the World's most popular drink, can help you to lose weight. This is what has been claimed by a new study.

Researchers claim that drinking this Egyptian drink rather than wine could mean losing almost 10lb in a year.

The study has denied Beer being fattening drink and claims that Beer contains fewer calories than wine. A glass of white wine has 131 calories, whereas a glass of beer has only 85 calories. People switching from wine to beer would burn off more calories than what they would in an hour's jogging.

"For years beer has been blighted by a reputation for being more fattening. The major source of calories in any alcoholic drink is the alcohol itself, and because beer is the drinks category with the lowest average alcohol content, it''s also lowest in calories," says expert Prof Charlie Bamforth.

So, people who are drooling in wine can now rather swoon with beer to enjoy the knock with guaranteed weight loss.
