What is the alcohol content of light beer compared to regular beer?

What is the alcohol content of light beer compared to regular beer?

It varies: This varies by brand but we can make some reasonable generalizations. Most regular beers are about 5% alcohol, and most "light beers" are closer to 4%. If you want to know for sure, you may have to look it up for a particular brand or call the company. So about 5 light beers = 4 regular beers. Clearly you can get drunk on both so be careful!

Is 100 grams of sugar bad for a teenager, including the amount of sugar in fruit? My sister has a lot of sugar, mostly in fruit but she isn't obese.

Is 100 grams of sugar bad for a teenager, including the amount of sugar in fruit? My sister has a lot of sugar, mostly in fruit but she isn't obese.

Depends: My concern about the nutrition label is that it does not indicate the glycemic index (how quickly something you eat turns into sugar). 100gram is high but lots of fruit without the veggies is also not optimal. Try to always eat low glycemic (more veggies, berries, apples, citrus fruits, and stone fruits ) as well as whole grain. ...Read more
