Do "unfiltered wheat beers" or "white" beers have more calories than others?

Hi all, I'm a fat guy so I personally don't give a flying hell about this, but a female is asking me if these "white" beers like Hoegaarden, or Blanche de Chambly are significantly heavier/fattier beers than others... I admit when you hear "unfiltered wheat beer" it does have the "sound" that it could be heavy... so I can imagine why some might think that. Also when you have the yeast at the bottom or what not, I guess it has that appearance

How does it compare to say a Budweiser, or Canadian, or a Moosehead, or so on.

Thanks guys

Cheers!
