Just planned girls nite out for Saturday (I haven't been out in a loonnnnngggggg time) Sooo no drinks on Phase 1? How is this going to work?
Anyone faced with this? If so how did you overcome it? Maybe I can have 1 or 2 drinks and a lot of water?

Sorry, but in order to have a successful Phase 1, no alcoholic beverages are allowed. Alcohol is a lot of empty calories, plus it usually leads to indulging in food porn.

Enjoy your Girl's Night Out, and have a glass of sparking water or fizzy water with a wedge of lime with some healthy OP munchies. I guarantee that you will feel much better for it the next day.

Have a virgin bloody mary. We can have veg juice and V8 on Ph1.

or ask for sparkling water and add a packet of crystal light to it.

You don't have to drink alcohol to have a fun girls night out.

When I am going out when on Ph 1, that's when I drink either diet cola OR seltzer water with lime. No one is the wiser. You are ordering from the bar so there is that fulfilled need.

You can do it. Do the clean Ph1 then in a few days, enjoy a glass of wine. You will feel uber guilty for not sticking to it - at least, I do. (I messed up Ph1 once b/c of alcohol and never again!! Not worth all the hard work).

I haven't had alcohol in 3 months because in the past when ever I've drank while trying to lose weight it would stall my weight loss for like 2 freakin weeks! I just decided I don't need it. Don't get me wrong, I do like to drink alcohol but it's just not worth it for me. Maybe sometime in the future but I've decided it better be a pretty awesome event for me to drink it.

Hmm. I guess faux coke cocktails it is.
