I've read Atkins New Diet Revolution cover to cover. I have it thoroughly drilled into my head that there is to be NO alcohol consumption during Induction. That's not difficult for me in the least, except this coming Saturday night. I'm attending an event that I've looked forward to for a very, very long time. I would really like to enjoy 2 glasses of wine, or 2 liquor drinks, or 2 beers...or something.
So give it to me straight. If I do drink the liquid sin, how much am I going to throw off my Induction success after my 1st week? If it will destroy my entire 2nd week, then I won't touch it. However, if we're looking at a 1-2 day bobble, then I'm okay with that. I have so much control right now that I'm not sure how badly it would effect me at all. Have any of you had a little bit of alcohol during your first 2 weeks of Induction, and if you did, was the outcome as disastrous and devastating as Dr. Atkins makes it seem? Or did he just like to scare the pants off of people for his own personal gratification?
