Favorite Low Carb Beers for Keto Diet
I guess I need to be honest with myself, alcohol isn’t truly a part of healthy living BUT I do only have one life to live and I do want to live a little. However, I would like to avoid gaining weight while “living it up” on my free carb days.
List of Low Carb Beers for Keto Diet
I think most of you would agree with me that nothing tastes better than an icy cold beer on a hot, steamy day. So we wanted to compile a list of low carb beers that seem to be popular so you can enjoy your favorite after mowing the lawn or hanging out at the beach. List below is from Daily Burn.
1. Bud Select 55
Calories: 55, Carbs: 1.9 g, ABV: 2.4%
With the number of calories in its name, it may come as no surprise that this bottle of Bud is the lowest calorie and carbohydrate beer on the list. But with the calories went the alcohol content, leaving about half the alcohol by volume (ABV) of the average beer. If you’re someone who likes to have more than a few in one night, this may be the way to go.
2. Miller 64
Calories: 64, Carbs: 2.4 g, ABV: 2.8%
Another brew that advertises its low calorie count right in the name, Miller64 clocks in on the low side when it comes to ABV. Crafted for “the you that takes the stairs” and “wakes up early every Saturday to play softball,” Miller64 isn’t a bad choice if you’ll be day drinking at said softball game.
3. Michelob Ultra
Calories: 95, Carbs: 2.6 g, ABV: 4.2%
If you like variety when you’re drinking, look no further than Michelob Ultra. With four flavors including amber, lime cactus, pomegranate-raspberry and dragon fruit-peach, in addition to the original, all with just 95 calories, you can’t complain this light beer lacks in flavor. Just be sure not to confuse this brew with Michelob Light, which will set you back 123 calories and 8.8 grams of carbohydrates.
4. Amstel Light
Calories: 95, Carbs: 5 g, ABV: 3.5%
You can thank Amstel Light for popularizing low-cal brews. In 1980, Amstel Light was the first imported light beer to hit the American market and is still going strong. With 35 percent fewer calories than the original, it’s a significant savings — especially if you have more than one.
5. Miller Chill
Calories: 100, Carbs: 4 g, ABV: 4.2%
Save yourself 48 calories and 8 grams of carbohydrates by swapping a beachside Corona with lime for a Miller Chill. This 100-calorie light beer gets a summertime twist from natural lime flavors.
Our Favorite Low Carb Beers for Keto Diet
The above list was compiled from a Daily Burn’s article. For their complete healthy beer list, click 15 Better for Your Body Beers. There is one more that we wanted to add to the list because they didn’t mention one of our favorites. Please know that this beer doesn’t have the lowest number of carbs but the article title did say “Best Tasting” low carb beers. Of course, everyone has different tastes and as much as I want to watch my carb intake, I just can’t stomach the watered down Michelob Ultra. So if you are like me and don’t want to sacrifice taste, check out the Modelo Especial.
Calories: 145, Carbs: 4 g, ABV: 4.5%
We think based on the amount of carbs and still getting that great taste, this would be our recommendation.
