Yes the dreaded alcohol! What do people think, is it better to cut it out entirley and just have it on occassions, or is it possible to drink a few glasses of wine once a week! Im really struggling with this because i go out to a club once a week and i find it a challenge to not drink a few glasses of wine, not saying that i cant cut it out because im sure i can! its a matter of putting my mind to it! xxx emoticon

    Hi Lesley!

As far as having a glass of wine I agree as long as you plan for it but try not to go over your calorie range. Also make sure you have eaten prior to going out. Any food you eat while drinking alcohol is turned into fat. Alcohol is digested differently. That is what sparkpeople tell me anyway.

    Hm well it's a question to me about is this something you can stop anytime you want or does it become an emotional issue to give this up?

If not emotional, then you could keep the wine as an occasionally treat but calculate the calories for it. (Obviously if there is an emotional problem with giving it up that's a whole 'nother kettle of fish).

Me, personally, I might plan for one glass per week so I can join with my friends as a social activity, but then switch to diet ginger ale, because alcohol is going to effect your metabolism if taken in too much quantity and make it harder for you to lose.

Hope this helps and makes sense. ;)
