Itís great to hear another voice of reason on the subject of alcohol and diet. For the last year I have felt like a lone voice in the wilderness shouting that alcohol and weight loss can coexist. As you say, it all comes down to calories in vs. calories out. A bagel has about 350 calories. A bottle of Guinness dials in at 125 calories. Lose the bagel at the morning meeting and you have plenty of room for a couple of beers or a glass of wine after work.
Alcohol and diet are a passion of mine. Iíve have spent the last year trying to dispel the myth that the only way to diet is strict prohibition. Iím always happy to see others draw the same conclusion. You can check out our best argument at www.drinkyourcarbs.com.
