This drink of choice seems quite simple to lighten—simply drink light beer. We asked our Facebook fans which light beer they prefer and the answers varied with Bud Light and Amstel Light ranking highest. If light beer isn't your guys thing or if he isn't willing to give up his full bodied beer, try another strategy. Encourage him to drink just one or two higher calorie, full-flavored beers. Choose a high gravity, slow sipping beer versus pounding can after can of light beer.
