As a former NS user, they generally ask you do not take in alcohol as it does have calories, especially those that are creamy, frozen and/r fruity. They also tend to cause bloat.
Having said that, I watched some weight loss shows and have read some other forums where people do have an occasional drink. Stay away from things mixed with juices, milks, and cream bases such as Irish Cream or Kahlua.
If you must drink most weight loss experts suggest the new Bud 55, simple and for a 12 oz bottle, 55 calories. Wine can be good if you stick to one glass of 8 oz, calories vary. Vodka is a great choice if you mix it with flavor seltzer water, diet club soda, plain water or another calorie free option. You can also do that with whiskey.
Hope that helps you a little bit.
Check a website like spark people, calorie count or my fitness pal to give you calorie count of certain drinks and plan your meals ahead.
For every drink, drink a water to help flush it out so your body does not retain water.
If you can stay close within your calorie range, you should do ok.
If you have experienced a huge loss, this might be a week your loss is minimal or you stay the same.
Hope that helps you a little.
I am a huge Guinness drinker, and I LOVE Irish Car Bombs, pretty much what I grew up on. Loaded with calories. A pint has about 150-300 cals depending on pint glass size as it does vary between bars. Irish car bombs are Irish cream and Guinness, many many calories. So I have had to limit my Guinness, and its ok. I have found some wines I really like and mix with diet seltzer or flavored seltzer water for 0 extra calories and I sip those during the night. Mojitos are pretty good and they are vodka based.
Its all about portion control, just like the food.
