Indeed, some studies suggest that drinking in moderation can actually help deflate a beer belly and there are even healthy beers out there that are fine to drink even if you're on a diet. Yes, there are plenty of low-calorie beers out there.See, in a study of 8,000 people, Texas Tech University researchers determined that those who downed a daily drink were 54% less likely to have a weight problem than teetotalers. Between one and two drinks a day results in a 41% risk reduction. But that's where the trend ends. Consumption of three or more daily drinks increases your risk of obesity, says the study. So if you can limit yourself to one or two a day, then you can get the health benefits without too many extra calories—if you choose wisely.Here's a rundown of what, exactly, you're really getting each time you reach for a cold one, as we ranked popular beers that are commonly sipped on. (And while you're at it, be sure you stay away from any of the most popular sodas we ranked by how toxic they are.)We listed beers from bad to worst, based on calories and carbohydrate content—the two major nutritional factors at play when analyzing alcohol.
