Darn it, how come what you like has to be bad for you? I love a good cocktail, more than any other food or drink. My favorites(changes as I try new ones) right now are an El Diablo, a Side Car and a Gold Rush. I was limiting to one a week ( not each Smile) but I'm going to not have one this week and see what happens in the 2 week period. If they are detrimental to my goals I will 86 them for a while, like 6 mos. If cocktails(that taste good)were alcohol and sugar free they would be my drink of choice. If you figure that out let me know. If you have any good virgin cocktail recipes please share. I have been having sugar free ginger ale and lime, or that with half diet cranberry juice, which isn't bad.

I don't think one cocktail a week is going to make that much of a difference. Just budget it into your calories for that day.

It's not about the calories. I'm following the Carb Nite Solution plan, and there is a chemistry, supposedly, about it, something about hormones and cortisol, it's supposed to destroy fat cells instead of just drain them. I'd have to read it again to say it exactly. I didn't think so either, so this is an experiment. It's not a big deal to forgo it, I just like them, they are fun, relaxing and a treat. the experiment involves lower carb, and higher calorie, and the protein intake, and the chemical changes that are made with low carbs, and no sugar, starch, alcohol. The premise is counting calories and losing weight that way, includes the loss of about half muscle. This plan is supposed to keep your muscle, build on it and subsequently lose the fat. So far, I'm stronger and the fat seems to be coming off. I'm still skeptical but I'm trying it for at least six months, unless some really bad results come in.
