My experience is that wine or other alcoholic beverages contribute to binging.
Has anyone else experienced this?
When I go looking for a glass of wine, I find that substituting water or tea w/o caffeine makes it so much easier to live binge free.
I also think my brain is stupid. When it sends me to the fridge for a glass of wine, it is just as happy if I give it diet soda in a wine glass. Is it the stem?
I have mostly given up diet soda so there is none in the house right now. The diet soda did help me avoid wine.
Perhaps if I make extra tea and try it in a wine glass?
Water in a wine glass does not work because it does not have any taste. I also work to avoid Drinking Calories - meaning fruit and veg juices.
Here's something I have not tried - I'm on South Beach Phase 1 - thinning Greek yogurt a bit with skim milk, vanilla and sweetener to create a drink in a fancy glass?
