    went out last night and thought I made a pretty good diet choice... vodka and grapefruit juice!! yummy! I also sometimes get a cold shot of raspberry vodka and chase it with water. - 1/3/2009 9:56:01 AM
  • Looks like I am going to have to rid myself of my Malibu Rum stash!! - 12/30/2008 8:56:00 PM
  • I don't get to drink that often, but this is something to keep handy and pull out when I do! - 12/30/2008 3:26:17 PM
  • This is great information. Will definitely keep this in mind come NYE and other celebratory events. Cheers! - 12/30/2008 9:52:58 AM
  • My major NYE problem is that it's also my birthday, so double trouble. I love that coconut rum isin't so bad - it's one of my favs! I am going to have to think up an awesome cocktail to incorporate it.

    Thanks for a great article! - 12/30/2008 2:20:18 AM

    drates for party foods is great. This way everyone can enjoy the food and good choices of wines abd alcoholic beversges, At least they can stick to their diets and still be avle to have. Thank you very for all this information.

  • This is good news for me since I have been known to be a wino on occasion. Also, with wine, I tend to drink it slower anyways so I save calories with that too instead of several beers if I go out. - 9/1/2008 11:13:11 AM
  • This article has been very informative, thanks. I too get the munchies when I have a drink and I thought that there was something wrong with me, but come to find out I'm not the only one. That is good to know. - 9/1/2008 7:55:13 AM

    I'm trying hard not to drink, bc I get tend to get the "munchies" ! lol
    When I do drink, it's always Rum and DIET Coke, so at least I'm not hurting myself too bad there. - 7/24/2008 2:52:24 PM
  • The problem is... 5oz is so small and wine is fine! - 7/7/2008 9:06:08 PM

    Actually, DOGTURTLEWMN, neither of those things are true (wine does not help you lose weight or build muscle). Some studies have shown a correlation between people who have 1-2 drinks a day and maintaining a healthier weight, but there's nothing about the properties of wine that CAUSE that to happen. There tends to be confounding variables like: most people who drink 1-2 servings/day have healthier habits in general. In terms of building muscle, physiologically that it doesn't make sense that any properties of wine would enhance that process.

    I heard recently that red wine helps you lose weight and build muscle. When I was a Weight Watcher, I had a small glass of red wine every night & lost lots of weight. I am doing it again, and I am losing when I thought I stopped! - 6/25/2008 4:36:01 PM
