I think its ok in moderation...Im sure it slows down weight loss, but I had a baby 14 months ago and I lost all 45-50lbs of my preg weight + 20 additional pounds doing a mix of SBD and SugarBusters...I drank light beer (Miller Lite or Mich Ultra) and still lost that weight. Miller Lite has 2.9grams of carbs per bottle...
Im trying to start back on Phase 1 this week @ 100% so after that I'll drink a glass of wine instead of beer...and have a beer when I want to celebrate!
But I enjoy having a beer now and then so Im not going to deprive myself or I'll never stick to a diet! LOL!
