    Just wondering what we all drink, (if at all) how much and how often?

    I drink EVERYTHING (OH wrote that GGrrrr get off my page) As I was saying, I drink red wine but Im finding it hard to just have the 1 (glass hee hee) I would be happy to have it every night ( dont we all....TUT TUT the wine hee hee)

    So, how much?
    How often?
    Does it effect your weigh-ins?


    Chin Chin my lovely`s

    I only have alcohol every now and then and didn't have it more often before I ate the way I do now...

    They say spirits are the one to stick with on atkins...I do like a tot of whisky or the occasional beer (cobra with the curry last night) when I do succumb...

    As for weigh in...I'm not doing that at the mo...just maintaining (so how do I know if I am maintaining if I don't weigh myself? Dunno just know and my clothes fit the same as before)

    hey hunnie , dont think red wine is too to bad on the carb front , but obviously not a great deal. im not a big drinker , never have been as my dad is a recovering alcoholic. ive seen the mass damage the disease can inflict on a family so ive always been super carefull just in case , but saying that i worked on cruise liners for years and never 'sucumbed' to the disease and the atmosphere is rife for that kind of thing to develop.
    anyway im waffling again , :D basically i drink very little when hubby is away as it makes me feel rough as dogs:jelous: and its a feeling i dont like :0)
    do tend to indulge more in the red wine when hubbie is home but i pile on the pounds way to fast .
    anyway ive gone on too long as per so ill bugger off now :D

    I have one glass of wine a day, but then Friday and Saturday nights I have been having 4 or 5 drinks, all sorts, but low carb only. I don't think its affected my loss, but then I don't know as I haven't not drunk!

    Before Atkins I was drinking a bottle of red a day, and usually a couple of other drinks too, so I am not sure if the weight I am losing is through the Atkins, or cutting out most of the alcohol! I guess it must be the Atkins mostly :)

    TT, is that red or white wine?
    I love my wine and enjoy having a glass while cooking and again while eating. Ive only been back on the red juice since thursday when we got back from hospital, hadnt touched a drop in 5.5 weeks.Not guilty about it as I enjoy it lol

    I drink a coupele of bottles of Red on a Friday night, and sometimes a couple of large G&T as well. On a sunny Sunday afternoon I might have a G&T mixer in the Garden. I could so easily be an alcoholic, my brother was and it killed him. I used to drink 10 pints of Guiness a night so now is a huge improvement.

    You'll probably find me really boring and I hardly every drink these days. I do like a nice cold vodka and tonic and do also like cava and champagne at a special event. But unfortunately alcohol doesn't agree with medication that I have to take, so I just tend to lay off it.

    I do have to say Jim that I do love the occassional very cold guinness. Yum! But mega calories!

    I LOVE Guinness! But here you can't get it, just Castle Stout which is rubbish. Still, one less calorific temptation to handle. Not much of a wine or spirits fan. In fact, my genuine favourite drink is....... water! Nothing else has the same cool, thirst-quenching feel for me.

    Yes, the island is a British territory but the closest land is Cape Town, 1200 miles away (FIVE days by ship as no airport) so we get a lot of South African products here. Some good, some rubbish. I think SA probably produces some good stuff but what comes here is mainly the cheap and nasty junk. I miss the EU food labelling. South African legislation doesn't seem to require much info on the packs.
