    hi guys.me and my fiance decided not to drink any booze in the month of june. so that's when i decided to do the atkins plan. it's now july,she's off to a take that concert and i'm ready to re-aquaint myself with the pub once again. normally i'm a lager man but have been known to have the odd jack and coke in the past. what alcoholic drinks are best for the atkins plan? what's your favourite slurp?

    I drink Red wine or G&T (diet of course)

    I also have the odd Guiness but that's a no no for you mate. :D

    I think JD may be a little higher in carbs, it always tastes sweeter to me somehow, but I'd be happy to be proved wrong.

    well i'm willing to give g&t a go. can't stand red wine personnally. shame about the guiness as i can demolish the black stuff.

    Oh me too, it's one of the reasons I got so fat in the first place, 8 pints of Guiness a night is not a recipe for being skinny is it. :(

    Vodka n coke zero = 0 carbs
    Bacardi n coke zero = 0 carbs

    Two of the choices i go for though i also stick to the ol rose wine as i figure if i'm having a drink i may as have one i'll really look forward to. Rose's 1.7carbs per small glass.

    Do you find alcohol affects you more on Atkins? I did, during induction, I was a cheap drunk. ;)

    Defo agree with you on the cheap drunk thing Jim! I used to be able to drink loads more (blame the forces on too much practice!).. Thought i'd have a killer hangover but thankfully i didn't however i did manage to get a glass or two of water down me neck before bed n also had a few before going out.

    Sadly, once you move onto OWL and stuff, the cheap drunk bit goes away. ;)

    Had a couple of gin and sodas tonight. Thoroughly enjoyed them although was starving afterwards. Ate about 10oz chicken and 10oz lamb with a salad. Stuffed now so off to bed. Back to normal tomorrow. Have got my son to hide the scales to ensure I don't weigh myself till next Monday.
