    i really dont like wine, i do like spirits, but i dont drink them at home, i dont mind them at functions when im dancing them off and socialising, i have these two bottles in the cupboard calling my name lol i was kinda hoping cos they were both cream based they might be ok, ah well, pepsi max instead lol thanks :)

    im far from an expert but my understanding is that spirits are carb free and when you add a carb free mixer its the best option for a drink if you are going to have one. always remember that the body wont be burning fat .when there is alcohol to burn it will burn that before fat . and always remember that alcohol seems to have a much greater affect on those on atkins x

    Woof - why don't you try coke zero (currently on offer in Sainsbury's), there's no citric acid in it.
