    Awesome..this is stupid of me,and I'm sorry for being nosey but do you mind explaining what your menu looks like? I've been told to eat mostly protein when you drink and no veggies or other carbs..which makes some sense but I'm interested to see how the "drinkers" menus look compared to ones that don't drink.

    Alcohol with starch post-workout is fine - it can help shunt glucose to glycogen in the muscles as opposed to the liver. Yes, it's best to avoid eating a lot of fat with alcohol, and also to avoid eating much sugar with alcohol too as the fructose in combination can put undue strain on the liver. Seems to work fine with moderate protein - I eat most of my protein at breakfast and lunch.

    I drink red wine --- not every night, but generally around 4 nights per week. The more fit I become, the less wine I desire. I try to do my workouts in the evening, which generally ends in a 'no wine' evening and early to bed -- which is fine with me. I have stopped drinking Guinness (my fav in the summer), and my fav martinis are restricted to two per year (shaken, with olives, straight up!).

    My indulgence of choice is grapefruit juice with vodka. Yum. I just don't drink it everyday.

    Beer makes me feel bloated and full and wine is just not my thing although I have tried time and time again to enjoy it
    since I live in wine country.
    I have always liked grapefruit juice so this combo works perfect for me and is something I look forwards to having
    some evenings. I consider it a treat much preferred to a sweet dessert.

    Well - I was away for 5 days visiting my parents and during those 5 days my partner didn't drink any alcohol. And lost three quarters of a stone - just not having the usual 2 glasses of wine a day... So I might try it ...!

    I know for a fact that cutting it out is the easiest way to drop a few pounds..but I've been doing this for 3 almost 4 years...I can't handle being sober all the time much longer! I feel like I've let this "way of eating" control too much & I'm ready to enjoy my wine again. But I'm afraid of the weight gain,so I'm trying to figure out the best menu for me to follow when I do drink..note, I don't plan on drinking everyday or getting hammered when I do but I guess I just want to be as primal & clean with everything else..if for no other reason so the guilt doesnt get to me too bad.. again I'm on my phone so if this is filled with errors, I'm sorry!

    I've been at this for a little over a year now, and I've lost a lot of weight without cutting out the alcohol, why start now? BRB, gonna grab a drink.
