My personal opinion is that you canít have both alcohol and weight loss. Speaking from personal experience, every time I was able to successfully lose weight, I did so by completely eliminating alcohol. In fact, I eliminate all beverages that have calories. But for me with alcohol, it affects my will, and I tend to much on things I donít need OR I do lots of rationalizing telling myself to have those chips or cookies, or other things I never would eat otherwise. I do not thing this is something that anybody can make a blanket statement about.
Maybe for some people, you CAN have both. But I think for me, I cannot. Frankly, I would rather save those calories for something else more enjoyable.
