Anyone find themselves doing great on your diet, no cheating, going to the gym, eating healthy, etc...then the weekend arrives, and you give into alcohol. My weakness is a corona. Any one have good alternatives, besides just saying no.

Thanks.

You know you can have whiskey with diet right? There is always Mich Ultra too. Whiskey doesn't have carbs but your body burns alcohol before carbs so you have to burn all the alcohol off first. I just prefer to say no unless special occasions.

I am also a beer drinker and blame most of my weight gain on beer... when I began to "diet" this past February I cut out all alcohol for the first 2 months, I dropped just over 10 lbs and started having a beer or 2 on the weekends. I went to the Miller 64 because i thought it still tasted like beer but only had 64 calories. since I have re introduced beer into my diet I have still been able to lose about 1 - 2 pounds per week. the key is to not overdo it and also to plan accordingly. if I know I am going to have a few on Friday I will plan to eat a little lighter throughout the day however still having a full dinner so to not drink on an empty stomach. has worked so far!!

I also add it in on occasion when I plan for it and account for it in my log. But I have to beware of 'beer goggles'... once those carbs hit, I want to eat everything in sight! I have to keep it to the beer and no additional snacks outside of my RDI for the day.

I agree with Bill, it is easy to start snacking while drinking especially at a social event where snack foods are usually out for everyone. this is where some will power needs to come in, I just tell myself if I want the beer I need to stay away from the snacks, that or have a snack but avoid the beer. it's not easy but it can be done!!

I'm bad about that also especially if I'm doing a lot of work outside.

Beer and wine are definitely my downfall. I joined something called Brew University at Taco Mac 2 years ago. I have earned my
"bachelor's" degree and gained 15 pounds!! My fiancé also joined, earned his "master's degree" and gained 50 pounds. That is the end of that even when football season starts. It will just be Yuengling Light (99 calories and yummy).

I love beer. And wine. And mixed drinks. LOL. I try to account for them in my overall calories for the day. I have been losing slowly and I am sure it would be better without the alcohol but it's something I'm not giving up (yet). Moderation is key, because if you cut too much food to account for the alcohol calories - you will not feel good and it won't be healthy (learned that the hard way). Cheers!

Thank you. That's really helpful.I down loaded the app to my tablet and it said 2000 calories which seems loads to many for weight loss. I will check out the link you sent. Many thanks once again.
