I’m probably going to tick some peeps off with this one, but that doesn’t mean I’m wrong. Can you drink while on a diet? Sure. Will you lose weight faster if you cut alcohol out of your diet? YES! I am living proof of that. Don’t get me wrong, I love to have a Heineken Light while watching my Red Sox, but since I’m trying to look cute in a bikini by December (vacation), I’m willing to skip it. When I first moved to Sac-Town I was 23 and just getting out of my “party stage.” I’m a lightweight, so two drinks was all it took to get me pretty tipsy. Well we all know what happens after you have some drinks at the club…on the way home you convince your DESIGNATED DRIVER to make a pit stop at Taco Bell or some other fast food joint and after a few weekends of that…the jeans are fitting a little tight. You know what I’m saying? Well after I realized I didn’t really like that “tight jean” feeling, I decided to cut alcohol out completely. Not even kidding you…I lost 10 pounds that first month! And I didn’t even drink that much in the first place! I started working out and eating organic food. I felt so much better!!! I still have a light beer every now and then, but that’s about it. Trust me if you want to lose weight quick, this will jumpstart it! OH and if you still want to go out and have some drinks…these are the 6 least fattening! Let me know if this works for you! Good luck and PLEASE don’t ever drink and drive.
P.S. Here’s a list from Forbes that shows the Most Fattening Cocktails. So watch out!!!
