Beer or Cider

Trying to watch the Cals, I've had some luck, ten pounds in five weeks, I cut all cake ice cream chips sodas etc. but I just don't want to give up my end of work day drink. It was usually a very heavy beer, stout or ale, but changed to cider. I can't find anything definitive on what has more cals

Cider gives me a hangover. Distilled beverages have more alcohol for less calories if that's what you're looking for. I cracked open a bottle of Bulleit Rye recently. Results have been satisfactory.

I had 12 jugs of hard cider in my cellar and was told by my wife to empty the contents down the sink, or else!! So I said I would.

I pulled the cork from the first jug and poured the contents down the sink, with the exception of one glass, which I drank. I pulled the cork from the second jug and did likewise, with the exception of one glass, which I drank. I then pulled the cork from the third jug and poured the cider down the sink, with the exception of one glass, which I drank.

I pulled the cork from the fourth sink and poured the jug down the glass, which I drank. I pulled the cork from the next jug and drank all but one sink of it, throwing the rest down the glass. I pulled the sink from the next glass and poured the cork from the jug. Then I corked the sink with the glass, jugged the drink and drank the pour.

When I had everything emptied, I steadied the house with one hand, counted the jugs, corks and glasses and sinks with the other, which were 29, and as the house came by, I counted them again and finally had all houses in one jug, which I drank.

I am not under the alcofluence of incohol as some thinkle peep I am, nor are I half so think as they drunk I am, but I fool so feelish I donít know who is me, and the frunder I stand here the longer I get.

Beers made from dark roasted malts (not dyed dark with caramel color) are generally lower in carbs than the fizzy yellows. Count carbs, not calories.

Not sure how you consider it a wash. The numbers are all right there. Do the math. The beers average lower in calories and carbs.
