JUDDD - and UD Question - Alcohol?

Hi Again,

First, thanks to everyone for being patient with my 3 or 4 questions so far. I've used google to try to search the forums, but sometimes it helps to just ask a specific question.

I am wondering what the effects of alcohol are if any of you use it during your UDs? I have a family celebration coming up and I am wondering if a couple of drinks (Low-Carb) will affect anything. I've only been on JUDD for a week (and am still at the same weight as when I started, with some ups and downs along the way) but am trying to plan in advance.

I've read everywhere that the body burns the alcohol before the fat. I've been to the Leangains site where Martin discusses eating only protein and low-fat on "drinking days."

But, I'd like to hear some real life tales. Again, I would be grateful to anyone who shares. If I need to stay away, I will. (Although, admittedly, I may try it first).

Thanks as always!!!!

- Marianne

JUDDD is all about calories. Just add them into your totals. I have wine and it doesn't seem to make a difference.

As Seabreezes says it's all about the calories, i sometimes have wine and it hasn't affected my losses - i count the calories - i have even been known to have a very very small glass on a DD

To give you an example - i've been planning my UD tomorrow, a total of 1750 cals - i'm having to skip breakfast and lunch tomorrow (for various reasons) and having chorizo risotto for dinner. I have a couple of hundred calories going spare so i had to decide wine or ice cream, the ice cream won this time.

I have wine or a cocktail almost every UD (occasionally a couple) and I've not had it slow my losses at all. It's wonderful freedom to know you can have anything you like, as long as it's within your calories.

Thanks you guys - and FairyWren, sorry, I was meaning to get back to you on the other good post you wrote to me.

Truth be told, I've always been okay with alcohol as long as I managed by other calories (and carbs) but since I've been researching stuff and been looking at posts and learning about hormones, etc., and whatnot, it's got me all confused!

Like I said, I probably will try it out. I just have to watch so that I can control the food carbs - and not get so tipsy that I cannot!

Best wishes to you all!!!!

Thanks, LCG - that helps, too. Maybe I can even do it w/out a celebration.

Honestly - and I forgot to mention this - sometimes alcohol (and I drink vodka or rum) helps me get past the water weight a bit. I never lose but I stay the same and am not as bloated....

Welcome, Marianne!

My only problem with alcohol is one drink leads to another...and another...and another...et cetera. if you don't have that problem, then just count calories, and enjoy!

Thanks, Granny - and all again.
I was just wondering. I did have 2 beers (in a frosty mug) on Sat and it lead to food overeating (but some of that was emotional - I was with my stupid ex). But I was expecting the calories to be way over and they were. I was just wondering what would happen if I stayed w/in calorie limits.

Thanks for your experiences - so far it sounds like a universal and not a YMMV.....

Unsolicited advice: hanging out (drinking) w/ stupid exes is never a good idea...gives them stupid ideas...unless you're co-parenting, and even then, not so much...

My vice is Evan Williams Honey Reserve. Love this stuff. It is dangerously smooth. Smoother than the Wild Turkey American Honey. I partake at least once a week. I do figure that into calorie counts for the day. (Both UD and DD)

I'm currently loving Jack Daniel's honey whiskey. I probably drink more than everyone here combined, usually wine, but often mixed drinks too. I stay within my calorie counts and have lost nearly 125 pounds, so I'd say, at least for me, alcohol calories are no different than food calories.
