Check out our Beverages guide in the ‘My Food Guides’ section. We recommend steering clear of alcoholic beverages for the first two phases of the program (the first week). During the third phase you may have 2 standard drinks per week.
i have regular drinks of an afternoon I’m on my second week and have lost 5kg already. i think its moderation if i wish to have a drink i don’t treat myself to any carbs or unhealthy food to eat i stick to my shakes and a protein portion with vegetables for dinner.
Some alcoholic drinks are better than others when trying to lose weight, spirits are lower calorie so mix a shot with soda water and a squeeze of citrus for flavour rather than having a high sugar pre-mix drink.
Diet fizz is better than the high sugar alternatives if this is your only option as a mixer, otherwise soda water is great!
Steer clear of cocktails with lots of added sugars such as syrups and fruit juices, or the creamy milk-based cocktails.
Lower alcohol beer is another option, or a glass of red or white wine. Make sure you intersperse your alcoholic drinks with non-alcoholic ones too.
