Amber Bock Beer

I went to happy hour yesterday, and had a few Michelob Amber Bock beers. This morning, I looked up the carb count. 15 grams in one 12 oz. beer!

It's back to Miller Lite for me!

Thanks, everyone. I bought some Heinz, and it really is good. It's expensive, but I guess it's worth it. I can save enough carbs to have some light beer with my burger!

My doctor told me to stop eating dairy products. So, a couple of months ago I stopped eating cheese. I love cheese, and I sure do miss it sometimes. But, I don't buy it; out of sight, out of mind.

I drink Miller Lite. It has 3.2 g carbs. I'm fine as long as I keep the rest of my carbs low. I have no problem staying away from sweets, starches, and dairy. But I love my beer; it's my only "vice".
