I'm so glad my taste and tolerance for alcohol hasn't changed since going primal. While I have cut back and I no longer have wine with dinner every day, I do drink it 3-5 days a week. On the weekends I also have a finger or two of bourbon and occasionally a vodka martini. Beer is now absent, but I don't miss it as much as I thought I would.
[QUOTE=Paleobird;1039063]I used to love a good red wine but I rarely drink at all anymore. Since going Primal, I find my tolerance for alcohol is way down and the hangover factor is way up. It just doesn't work out to being worth it except as a special occasion *one* glass.[/QUOTE]
Like paleobird, the hangovers are now terrible. Even after just two drinks. I used to drink almost daily before going primal, but now I just can't handle the wicked hangovers. Pissed me off at first and trust me, I tried to tough it out but each time I drank it sucked hard the next day. Now I think it's a good thing that I don't really drink anymore :)
[QUOTE=cruncan;1038657]Do you drink alcohol? What kind? How often? Why or why not?[/QUOTE]
Yes. Silver tequila (100% agave of course) and vodka. Too often. Because I am a happy lush.
[QUOTE=EyeOfRound;1039434]I've been drinking a lot of red wine recently, but the reality is that whenever I drink, I end up 1) overeating 2) eating all the wrong things, so I think I need to put an end to this habit and treat booze the same as, say, ice cream - a rare treat.[/QUOTE]
This. Exactly. Alcohol to my brain means chips or anything crunchy and my tastebuds have no off switch. I'm better off not drinking alcohol at all.
