What to look for: To limit calories, go light. Decline dark beers like ales, which pack more calories and carbs. Stouts, however, have fewer calories than many light beers.
Extra Point: Alcohol is a diuretic. To avoid a Monday morning hangover, drink 8 ounces of water between your brewskis.
2-Point Conversion: Dry red wine is packed with antioxidants, and one 5-ounce glass has about the same calories as a light beer: 102 calories, 0 g protein, 2 g carbs, 0 g fat.
