Hey beautiful ladies. So, how do you guys treat alcohol when you're on a fast. I usually dont because of all of the calories (and the fact that if I get tipsy, I'm more likely to make a bad judgement call and break my fast). But i never feel like I drank all of those calories like I do if I drank, say, milk or juice. Alcohol DOES act as a diuretic, and I feel like it helps me lose the water weight I sometimes get puffed up with on fasts (with all of the diet soda and stuff that I drink). I'm on a fast right now, and I think I'm going to disregard alcohol calories so long as it's just lower cal booze (vodka, maybe white wine or champagne). Thoughts? What do you guys do about booze?

I'm not fasting, but when restricting I am careful with alcohol. I stick to vodka/diet coke and make sure I eat beforehand because drinking on an empty stomach makes it so so sore- it feels like it's turning itself inside out if that makes any sense. So I would be really careful if drinking whilst fasting- you will get so much more drunk so much quicker and it'll really irritate your stomach.
In terms of calories, I dont really count alcohol cals as long as I stick to vodka or even wine sometimes- I lose weight after drinking but like you said it is just water weight and comes back on again a day or so later i find. I dont really think alcohol makes you put on weight though unless you drink tons and tons of it- I'm a big drinker and it doesnt make too much difference. The only thing is is that your body metabolises alcohol first, so if you eat a ton, it wont get digested/broken down as quickly. (not the most scientific explanation- someone correct me if i'm wrong!)if i'm starving you can feed me lollipops™
If neurotic is wanting two mutually exclusive things at one and the same time, then I’m neurotic as hell. I’ll be flying back and forth between one mutually exclusive thing and another for the rest of my days.
Yeah I always count alcohol calories!...and stay away from white wine, quite calorific you know! Although I tihnk sparkling wine is supposed to be a little better?...yup I always stick with vodka diet cokes, or you can have other pure spirits like gin! No liquours though like Malibu, Baileys, Archers etc, they have more sugar. . . .vodka and gin are 55cals per shot :-) xx

Yes... we have to be careful... I once drank cranberry juice-vodka-lemon juice after I hadn't eaten anything in 2 days (ok... they were more vodka drinks than cranberry juice drinks !!!!) and I just had the worst blackout of my life !!! I had not been sick -which would had help "debbooze"!- I was not use to be drunk so fast... I've always been a heavy drinker... but with an empty stomach... !!!!
