    Try Asda. I’ve been getting it from there in the last couple of months

    I had a couple of glasses of red wine last night with a low carb meal - ended up with a bs figure of 3.2 overnight! Clearly can’t combine the two.

    Not tried it before but hopefully will.

    Went on a mission today. Found 6 loose cans in a Co-op. Nothing in Tescos Asda or Morrison's then struck gold at the large Sainsburys. 4 × 4 pack bottles which cleared them out They did however have the Amstel 66 bottles which whilst bit less alcohol are even lower carb, plenty of these in stock so will be interested to taste these. Seems like a lot of effort for a few beers but worth it imo.

    You can order from them direct, DPD next day delivery available: https://www.skinnybooze.co.uk/colle...s/skinnybrands-lager-cans?variant=19189876165

    Not quite as good as Michelob Ultra on the carbs, but marginal difference personally on the blood levels. Good flavour too.

    Also, Crement can be a good alternative for a cold sparkling drink low carb alcoholic drink.

    Looks like your cat has already had enough beer.

    I tried drinking Coors light..... well 4 cans of it. Then forgot to check my blood but was ok the next day. I mean the taste isn’t great, but it wasn’t terrible. Has anyone else tried it and does it effect anyone badly? I may try it again this weekend :)

    Coors light is a decent enough lager and relatively low carb and calorie. Ice cold in this weather a beer is a real treat Just find the Michelob beats it and Bud light on taste. In my opinion if you are only having a few beers then its not going to do you much harm and i intend to enjoy a couple of draught Guinness asap. I am wary of drinking in excess after reading warnings but i did have a decent sup on VE day and tested the morning after and my reading was a little lower than day before or after so didn't trouble me much.
