Calories in Guinness compared to bread

In one of my previous posts I compared the amount of calories in a pint of Guinness compared to an average lager.

Even though I have shown that Guinness is relatively low in calories compared to some other lagers and beers it is still pretty difficult to quantify exactly how this compares to normal food. So, I have decided to show the amount of calories in different types of bread compared to an equal portion of Guinness.

So this table displays calories for 100ml of Guinness compared to 100g of bread (according to http://www.weightlossresources.co.uk/):

Nutritional info Guinness Brown bread Granary bread White bread
Calories 37 218 220 226
Protein 0.3 8.5 10.5 7
Carbohydrate 3.2 44.3 38 46
Fat 0.1 2 2.9 1.5
Alcohol 4.2 0 0 0

It is pretty clear that there are loads more calories in 100g of bread than in 100ml of Guinness. So, to all of those people who say that a pint of Guinness is equivalent to 7 slices of bread…Whatever…
