Sci­ence says it’s your round

If you’re worried beer is stop­ping you win­ning the bat­tle against your belly, switch to the zero-al­co­hol stuff rather than fizzy drinks or juice. Not only is it lower in calo­ries than many soft drinks, but new re­search has also found you can still get a “beer buzz” from it. Brain scans at In­di­ana Univer­sity showed the taste of beer trig­gered the re­lease of dopamine - a neu­ro­trans­mit­ter linked to re­ward-mo­ti­vated be­hav­iour - be­fore any in­tox­i­ca­tion ef­fects could oc­cur. With around 20 calo­ries per 100ml, com­pared with 40 in reg­u­lar beer, you’ll also sig­nif­i­cantly cut down on your calo­rie in­take, as well as wak­ing up feel­ing fresh and ready to hit the gym.
