    Hi,

    still deciding which is best for me - ie low carb or atkins once i finish my lipotrim diet.
    Ive got the atkins book and im going to start reading this afternoon. 1 quick question...once past induction, what do you guys drink - and can you swap your daily leafy green carb allowance for alcohol carbs (say at a bbq for example) - miller lite beer has 3.2g carbs per bottle so this would equate to 6 bottles, or obv vokda and rum have no carbs so with a diet soft drink id assume these would obv ok to have?

    cheers in advance

    i have dry white,
    pinot grigio, chardonnay (cheap wine too lol)
    im on induction and have NEVER been able not, to have a drink or two.

    you CAN have it, but be prepared, your loss could be SO much bigger if you DONT drink!
