** LOW CARB ALCOHOLIC DRINKS **

I did my research & found that straight liquor has "O" carbs, so is the best option if you are out with friends &'want to feel social. Mixers add in sugars & carbs, so best to go with diet coke or seltzer. Tonics & other mixers are loaded with sugar & carbs. (Piña Colada, White Russian, Margarita...20-30g carbs, Wine & Beer - 6g carbs)

Here are some drinks I have had during induction & still lost weight:
*Jack Daniels & diet coke with a lime twist (0 carbs)
*Vodka & diet red bull (2g carbs)
*Champagne/Sparkling wine (2g carbs)

I was surprised to find that all the "skinny girl cocktails & wines" are not so "skinny" and are loaded with carbs!

Anyone else have any low carb alcoholic drinks to share?

Yeah, vodka and water... then I can squirt my Crystal Light in it for flavor. I also like vodka and club soda (for bubbles), and the CL.

Another one is an Arnold Palmer. Vodka and tea/lemonade (sugar free). Can't do this at the bar, but at home it is nice on a summer evening.

I'm way more fond of wine, (good) beer, or a fun (sugary) martini, though. But it's a compromise.

I've drank the whole time on induction, I need my beer on the weekends. Ill do 64 2.2 carbs, or ultra 2.6 usually. Love vodka water with a splash of tea and/or lime wedge. But vodka slows me down much more than beer. Sometimes I actually lose weight and keep it off after beer...puzzling cause I drink plenty of water.

Cb, beer is what I miss the most right now. I adore beer. For the sake of science, I may have to run a small experiment regarding beer and stalls (or lack thereof). Maybe it's not a YMMV issue at all. How awesome would it be to throw a LCF keg party?!?

I needed this thread! :-) I'm posting so I'm subscribed so I can read all of the new ones people can come up with. Tonight I had Stoli Vanilla vodka (.5 Net) with diet orange pop. (I brought my own diet orange with me because my friend was bartending and I knew it wouldn't be an issue.. Creamsicle all the way.

I ALSO usually love diet coke and Cherry Vodka, but I can only usually find Three Olives Cherry, and it's 2 Net. Tastes just like cherry coke zero. ...and I only EVER drink pop when I'm having a mixed drink, so it works well for me.

Has anyone done a unsweetened ice tea with Bacardi Limon? That sounds like it might work out pretty well..

Vodka with club soda and a splash of diet cranberry juice is a nice change.

I really like Bacardi arctic grape or dragonfruit with cherry limeade SF drink mix.

Crown Royal and Diet Coke if I'm going for no carb. Coconut Rum mixed with Diet Mt. Dew or Sprite Zero if I'm ithe mood for a tropical type drink. Especially good with crushed ice. The coconut rum is higher carb (5 carbs) but does the job when I want a tropical type drink.

Ok, ok add water if you must.

Beer (and to a lesser extent wine) done me in.
I drank beer for many years, but then my body couldn't take it any more.
Never was good at moderating . . . .

i am also a beer drinker. That is the bggest problem with me and this diet. I have been drinking Bacardi and diet coke, or vodka and diet 7up. I wonder if I could drink beer instaed, I always drank mich ultra anyways. Oh how I miss it. I may give it a try.

Vodka and sparking water with a lime twist.... Sometimes a small slash of cranberry... I found a sugar free dink mix that's piña colada flavored... I will blen the powder with liquor and ice and sometimes a small splash of hwc... Voila! Piña colada... I've also used lime flavor and a bit of triple sec and tequila ( margaritas) about .5 to 1 carb each and yummy and indulgent... But vodka and water is go to...

I've found that a lot of bars have diet 7up on the gun, which makes a decent vodka drink when mixed.

But I love beer. Octoberfest and beer.

But I also love my pants to fit. LOL.

I can't do diet sodas without stalling and having cravings. I do generally avoid all alcohol when on LC and trying to lose, but when I really want a drink I will usually stick to wine. Even better a wine spritzer (wine, club soda, slice of lime/lemon) because then I can have two or three drinks for the same alcohol as one full glass of wine.
