Skinny beer - 12 bottles just £12.99 (+£4.49 Non-Prime) @ Amazon

46
Posted 16th Jun
NB 12.99 is delivered with PRIME ONLY

This stuff is 4% and only has 89 calories per bottle.
Loosely translated - drinking this beer slows rotundness and moob onset.

Bottles are 330ml & come well packaged.

Ordered randomly and to be fair rather than the watery rubbish I half expected this tastes pretty good for something relatively healthy.

Taste notes - think Italian beer...

Don't get me wrong ml for ml this isn't 50% less calories than other beers... however once you explain to Mrs HUKD the merits of 'just 89 calories' (it's plastered all over the box) the beer actually becomes dare I say appreciated rather than frowned upon.;)

Quintessential notes... Its Gluten free, mates with Vegans, Kosher and no whales were harmed in it's manufacture.

Enjoy

Is pretty good for a Gluten Free beer and not priced as though it was made of unicorn tears like some GF beers. Inoffensive and drinkable!

mmh ok each to their own - not like a stella or anything but lighter and better for you - guess its not for you then
It’s quite watery, ok if you’re on a diet but trouble is you end up drinking more because it’s only 4%

I just drink for a treat as I actually like the taste of beer. If I'm worried at my weight I just dont drink

I'd never heard of it to be fair. But the reviews online - Amazon are on the whole very positive.

Id imagine the CAMRA lot will be here soon to say how awful this is and that their knowledge of beer and taste is superior to yours.

Thanks OP. I'll try it out.

This is also gluten free beer. It's also for people like myself who can't drink normal beer. That's probably why.

Its been around for a few years now.
I tried it whilst dieting and didn't enjoy it. I decided to drink less often but drink normal beer.
A compromise would Coors light

I think Coors Light is the same calories or there abouts
Great everyday man in the street marketing blurb on line 2 + 3.Sold on that alone. Cheers.
Nah, this is trash. Got it last summer for £12 and still have 5 bottles taking up space on my shelf.

Perfectly fine for those looking GF, and a fair enough price but those looking to cut the calories, don't bother.

The CAMRA lot? Forget them and head to tesco and get some northern monk or thornbridge beers at 8 cans for £9

Not surprisingly, as the calories are mostly derived from the alcohol content... Bud light is probably the same.

As a side note, you can't store the calories from alcohol, at it only generates heat as they break down (so the calories from food your body was setting aside for heating purposes, will get stored as fat instead) - but if you don't eat, you can drink as much as you like and still lose weight - I call it the rock star diet.

Where were you when I was arguing with my wife???

It does work, but blooming difficult, especially when the beer hunger kicks in...so Guinness for lunch.

Also, its a good idea to stop drinking once you reach your target weight, to let your liver and kidneys recover. Oh, and take multi vitamin tablets, and the odd banana for selenium, otherwise you'll pass out.

103 calories I think. Slightly more carbs but better tasting

That's the spirit - I have no affiliation to these people but try it and if you like all good if not no harm done and a few of your neighbours/guests less caloried when they come round
Only 3 carbs a bottle, compared with 15 carbs in a pint of real ale, excellent for a low carb or keto diet.
I was overweight with high blood pressure, this, and a high fat keto diet, has helped me lose three stone and knocked my blood pressure back into line.
didn't even look at real ale Dave that's a hell of a saving 15 vs 3 are you sure? either way congrats 3 stone is top work!

Good work, was it more low sugar, rather than high fat?

I have tried it, ( i didnt actually vote). I only tend to vote on whether its a good price not based on my opinion
I'd dispute any claims that this is healthy.

Alcohol is carcinogenic and poison (I do drink though, I just don't kid myself).

Beer contains purines.

If this doesn't contain hops then fair enough, but if it it does it's oestrogenic.

Lower calories doesn't mean healthier.

For a relatively healthy drink I'd recommend Sainsbury's So Organic Cabernet Sauvignon - and organic, sulphite free red wine.

For beer I'd just go with Erdinger Alcoholfrei. A 0.5% wheat beer. Obviously not gluten free though. But I find that very tasty (I actually prefer it to the normal alcoholic version) but normal beer drinkers may well find it too sweet. Low in hops, naturally isotonic. That's actually a touch lower calories per 100ml, primarily from being virtually alcohol free.

Get lost. Jesus got all his mates on the wine so must be good for you.

Wow that's aggressive lol.

My main point is that lower calories doesn't mean healthier.

But low carbs can certainly help for keto etc. And for those looking for a gluten free beer this looks like a decent option.

Alcohol stops ketosis as the body prioritizes breaking down alcohol.

I'm not bothered, it made me laugh heh. But I'd say a blunt comment is to for example say Wrong!
Telling someone to get lost isn't being blunt, and comes across as aggressive.

Why should I get lost? I provided thoughtful comments that others may find useful

Cut out all sugar and carbs, and your body switches automatically to burning fat.
Well worth checking out, I am eating far better now than I was before, and after three months of a Keto lifestyle I am too small for jeans that I grew out of over ten years ago.
Tom Watson the MP published a book recently, downsizing, about how he lost 8 stone.

Excellent, that's my point, beer should be OK on such a diet... Well, OK ish
Smadmad17/06/2020 12:20

Yes, alcohol takes priority and delays or slows the ketosis, however the body does not revert to burning sugar as there is none.
As soon as the body has "disposed" of the alcohol it starts burning fat again.

I record all my food and drink in my (free) food diary on the myfitnesspal website.
I aim to keep carbs below 20 grams a day and to keep fat at 75% or more, as shown in a pie-chart on the website.
Today I have only had 11 grams of carbs, five from lunch, three from a skinny lager, and three from a piece of dark chocolate.
9 carbs spare so I could have three glasses of red wine.
Drinking a pint of standard beer or lager would take up most of my daily 20g carb target.

I don't believe that, it's not proper carbs that you can store...
