Alcohol is not allowed while you're on IP. There was a thread about this earlier this week... here it is:

Alcohol related posts

Edited.... Sorry, Lian... I didn't pay enough attention and missed that you're in Phase 2. I guess some leeway re alcohol is more acceptable there. Nice to know.

I have not been a drinker for almost 30 years, but there are times I want to blend in. For me I choose diet tonic water with lime.

Looks "drinky" but the intensity of the taste keeps you sipping rather than chugging.

I didn't drink until I got to maintenance BUT I remember reading over and over that Vodka is the choice if you do decide to drink. Coaches have even been known to say a vodka drink is okay...it's one of the lower carb alcohols. But you can't mix it with cranberry juice or any juice...I think maybe Vodka Tonic would be fine...'cause I think tonics are okay... Oh, and only One!!! but remember the alcohol can lower your inhibitions, which could result in giving in to food temptations...just something to keep in mind. Good luck with whatever you choose and most importantly enjoy your time with friends!

vodka + soda water OR vodka + pellegrino. Can not be flavored vodka so stick to clean stuff. you will only get the 100 cal per drink with zero carb and zero sugar.

I was 139 lbs yesterday, had 3 shots of 100% Agave Tequila last night and weighed 138 today continuing to follow the IP diet. I recommend that if you are going to drink, save your snack for after, because you will want to munch on something after your drink. I had my bar about 1 hour after I had my last shot. So, I don't think it will impact your progress as ketosis stops while you process alcohol and then starts again after the alcohol is processed. I do feel hungrier today, but I can suffer through it. Sacrifices!

Thank you all for your wonderful advice, I did have 3 vodkas and some nachos and 1 chicken wing..... the next day I was up 1 pound now as of this morning that was gone, but still not in ketosis as of yet.....
No crazy hangover or anything, my tummy seemed ok the only thing I noticed different was about 15 months ago I had my gallbladder removed and funny enough around 8ish last night I started getting a achey feeling around where my gallbladder should be, so I might mention that to the doctor it makes me wonder if its my liver working overtime....
I will play around with phrase 1 and 2 over the next couple days cause on Thurs I am suppose to be going to phrase 3 but would love to lose another 5 pounds still.......I am phrasing out as I am going on holiday in less than 2 weeks, so by then will hopefully be at maintenace.....
Did any of you notice a change in your weight in phrase 3???
