    Am having a few friends tonight. Food wont be a problem as I am cooking and it will be 100% within my Green Plan.
    Its the alcohol bit.. :)
    I drink both wine or lager. Now. I have some lite pilsner beers which are 50cl- 126 cals. Not bad I thought. Now it will be a bit of a boozy night(hubby Bday) and I will easily drink 4 of these.
    Or do I stick to white wine, which is about 65cals per 100mls. Now i would probably drink a bottle of this.
    I suppose what I am asking is... I know alcohol is empty calories and not good for the diet...but is one of them a better choice?:break_diet:

    Well, my rather dodgy maths would suggest that the beers are less syns - if you stick to 4. Personally though, I think you would get better value out of the wine if you're after having a bit of a boozy celebration. As your food will all be on plan and the alcohol is the only 'naughty' bit I would just choose what you prefer. It's only one night and you could cut back your syns a little tomorrow to make up for it. Have a great time! (By the way, which lager is it - that is pretty good value for a big can?!)

    I'd have one small glass of wine, possibly topped up with soda to make it last longer and use the rest of your syns in the beer!

    I'd say get some diet lemonade and add to which ever you would prefer to drink to make it a longer drink and enjoy your evening :)
