    Hello all :)

    I'm going to visit my friend next weekend as she is down in Leicester at uni and I haven't seen her for a year! We are going on a night out (I haven't been out for so long!) and I know a lot of alcohol will be involved..

    I'm not going to worry myself about not losing anything because of going out for the night, because I won't expect to. But what's the best thing to drink? I usually have a vodka lime & soda.

    I've already warned her I'm on this diet and I'll take my shakes down with me an hopefully find something I can eat when I'm there.

    Thanks in advance!

    Alcohol while on ketosis is advised against I'm afraid; it can be dangerous - http://www.minimins.com/cambridge-d...ation/26311-dangers-alcohol-when-ketosis.html

    It also increases risk taking ... hence the "i'll have a kebab and sod the consequences" behaviour.

    I know you want to enjoy the weekend but I think it's a case of deciding what is the most important factor to you at the moment. What ever you decide just be careful x

    yeah I really would not drink in ketosis , can be dangerous . I would advise talking to your CDC , maybe do a higher plan which takes you out of ketosis for a few days before ( 1000 ? )

    Snap Rumbly .. i was on water all last night too while the other girls polished off bottle after bottle of wine. I felt fine and waking up without having to battle a hangover and cravings for fried egg sambos this morning was great!!!

    Felix -- go but just plan for it! As Determinator says.. if you want to have a drink then ring your CDC and work out a plan and then enjoy the weekend. It's important you don't hide during this process otherwise you may start feeling "left out" and resentful and that's not good.

    Hmmm I'm really not sure what to do now. I was going to cancel before but decided today that I would go. I'll ask my CDC's advice tomorrow. Thanks for your help guys :)
