I use 1/2 a shot of 100 proof....2 free foods, right?..
<two fingers my eyes to yours> Seeeee....thats what I'm thinkin'..
Before all the "diet" police try to jump on me and I have to get snarky.....
Disclaimer: The above stats are not to be construed as a recommendation to drink, I was simply answering her question...
I suppose I should add my own disclaimer...I drink once in a blue moon...and I believe that is supposed to happen twice this year, correct?..
Water is the lowest calorie drink you can get...
Badddddddd Coach encouraging someone to drink! Dont you know it's not recommended!! Bad Bad Bad!.
Lol kidding so kidding thanks for the stats I needed that as I am going out of the state this weekend and drinking will be involved Saturday night lol!..
Vodka w diet tonic is a great plan but most establishments don't have diet tonic. I have vodka w/ club soda and ask them to muddle the citrus(lemons/limes) it's very refreshing and in between water w/ lemon like someone else advised. Enjoy your evening and be safe!.
FYI - Vodka has no carbs. unless you have any of the flavored ones...
Lol opps I wish, someone must have spiked my water here at work!!!..
I'm just tryin' to help out some of my guy friends...if it weren't for women having alcohol they might never have sex.
I never had that problem...
Oh c'mon Mark...don't tell me your hand never tried reaching for the bottle first...
I SAID I didnt drink...I NEVER said I didnt soak my hand in a bottle of Jack Daniels from time to time...
Coach your a riot !! But in a good way...
Dr. told me before my Vegas trip ( i'm diabetic).
If you MUST drink, drink Rum and Diet Coke. NON flavored rum. He was right, it had NO effect on my blood sugar. BEST diet drink and gets you WASTED!.
Link to nutritional facts on Rum.
Looks like Vodka is a good choice too. Its hard to chase that..
Distilled alcohol has more sugar than say a lite beer. Since the OP asked for the "best" to have, I'd say the answer is lite low carb beer...
Since no one has stated the obvious on this thread, I'll give you the Nutrisystem line on alcohol just to make sure we are covered here!.
Avoid alcohol. Empty calories. In my experience, which is vast on this subject , it really slows down your weight loss. It probably takes 3 days to recover and continue to lose weight. It makes you more hungry for the next day or two. And while you are buzzed, you are way more likely to say "oh what the heck" and indulge in a bad food choice.
Distilled drinks have more sugar. Wine is NOT a fruit serving! Try drinking a water in between any drink. And drink LOTS of water that day and the next. Do NOT subtract food calories to try to make up for your alcohol calories...
Dang - I wanted to see you snarky lol just kidding..
Thanks so much - I really need all that info - My husband is in a band and we are out every weekend. I don't always have drinks but when I do, I do not want to mess up my progress!..
I have a glass of wine when we go out to dinner every Fri and Sat night, it's working great for me. Have fun!..
I am also a type 1 diabetic(21 yrs.) that's why I stick to vodka. Don't know if you know this but our bodies can actually matabolize(sp) sugar alcohol. Hard alcohol can lower blood sugars so check.
Love your user name. Giggle is my favorite word ;-}!!!..
