First off, don't stress out about it. I notice that alcohol tends to make me gain weight over night. If I drink (which is rarely) I can expect a 2-3 lb gain in the morning. I drink at home, so I am not eating anything with it. Up your fluids and do your excersice it will get better.

I feel your pain about the wine. Since I have retired I have gotten into the habit of having two glasses a night. Eight months later I noticed that I look and feel heavier and my clothes are snug. Time for a reality check... I'm going to work on only having my wine on the weekends. Wish you well.

Yeah, wine. I rarely drink now. I expect I will drink some after I reach my goal, but doing so now is bad for weight loss on so many levels.

That's what I do when I drink a glass of wine. One bottle of water per one glass of wine. It keeps me at just 2.

Sounds like good advice! If I feel my willpower giving out, I'll give it a try; certainly will give me something to look forward to,

Thanks for the cheers.

How much protein, fat and Carbohydrate
Hi Sandee. The body makes all of it;s over 120,000 different and specific proteins - and foods, powders, shakes, protein bars have zero to do with this most natural part of how the body works, how all ...

Lost 21 Pounds in 21 Days
Have to agree with jorge loco. Slow, steady and consistent is safer. You don't want to be losing muscle.
