A glass or two of wine a day is fine if you aren't on Phase 1, but other alcohol is not allowed.

These recipes all sound pretty good, but you must keep in mind that alcohol will hinder your weight loss and will cause cravings.

I guess this should be in P3 extras then? I wasn't sure where to post but thought it would be a good topic- I know we can't all avoid it forever some are better than others! lol

Feel free to move wherever you want it, Just wanted to give some lower sugar/calorie options for people who were going to indulge occasionally

Rikki, thanks so much for this... some of the recipes are brilliant!

I know alcohol is a no-no, but total abstinence is just not a reality for me at this point in my life... so far, limiting it to 2 or so drinks, one night a week, has not seemed to hinder my efforts. Can't speak for anyone else.

Thanks again, looking forward to the day when it is warm enough to enjoy a cold beverage on the porch!

Okay, confession - I have the original book on audio book so challenging to search. I've found really mixed information about alcohol though, lots of places indicating that Dr. A prefers wine but alcohol is allowed in small amounts and with allowed mixers (which is what I, possibly mistakenly, remember) in Phase 2. Book people?

Just one example: http://www.southbeachdiet.com/sbd/pu..._20080111.aspx

If you do choose to imbibe, Baja Bob's is a great line of sugar free mixers, sweetened with splenda. I am particularly fond of the margarita mix (which I like so much I use it for other things, like marinating chicken breasts) and the mai tai mix.

Thanks Cyndi for finding that article for us! That does make me feel better about having a beverage, occasionally. although had you not posted it probably wouldn't have stopped me either ....

I made the margaritas with soda tonight(its 75 here!) and I didn't care for it as much as the one with just water...

Def. going to try the mojito and margarita recipes! One of my favorites in the summer is SF Lemonade(I usually use a generic brand) and vodka. I usually put it in a fancy wine glass with ice and a lemon slice floating on top to make it look girly and sip slowly. If we can only have it occassionally, might as well enjoy it!

By the way, your Marg. recipe with the Crystal Light and Diet Sprite has less than 150 calories. Now THAT, my dear, is totally doable! Genius.
