What’s your poison?

Let’s talk about drinking and weight loss. Everyone knows that alcohol is not the best when you are trying to get healthy. Empty calories are not something you need. However, if drinking has always been part of your social circle how do you eliminate it? Do you need to eliminate it? There are many different ideas and opinions. I had a male friend who quit drinking beer and lost 25 pounds in what seemed like 2 days. Not accurate but frustrating for some of us. I once quit drinking for 3 months and gained 10 pounds. So what is the answer?

 After my decision to get healthy and change my life I cut out a lot of drinking. Not that I had an issue but I was most definitely a social drinker. So when weight loss was an absolute must I didn’t know what to do. Should I switch to low carb drinks or wine or vodka? I made the decision to switch to wine and cut way back. This was my choice. What about you? If health and weight loss is your goal how do you handle liquor? Did you cut it out or scale back? My goal is to have long and healthy life. Some studies say wine is not a bad option. What do you think? What plan do you follow? Can you lose weight and stay healthy and still enjoy happy hour?

Interested in your reply.
