    Michelob Ultra and Select 55 are low carb beers, many brands now have a LITE version. So drink up!

      LOL *cheers* !!

      I like to “eat clean” (super low carb, mostly meat & eggs) during and after enjoying a drink, just to avoid absorbing too much crap while my body burns off the alcohol.

      Of course, I’m not a huge drinker – but a little stall is not going to stop me from enjoying the occasional drink! 😉

    You know I love to have a rum & coke in my hand! Interesting that our bodies can’t multitask and burn both the alcohol and the fat – I did not know about that.

      Me either. The wine I like is only 1 carb per ounce. Not so bad – till I read about (and experienced) the “alcohol stall”. 😛

    Great to know that rum is low in carbs. I’m afraid to ask: how bad is red wine?

      You’ll want to research your favorite brand/type of red wine. I drink white zin (red gives me a migraine) and mine is about 1 carb per ounce – so 6 for a 6oz glass.

      On a day when I’m going to have a drink, I eat super clean (stick to meat & eggs). Of course, the biggest issue is not the carbs, but the fact that it stalls your weight loss for a few days after.

    I have noticed that times when I drink no alcohol at all my weight loss is noticable, wheras when I have a drink (usually or three!) my weigh stays the same, or worse :( I thought it was because alchol tends to give me the munchies but the alcohol stall explains everything.

      Yeah, it was news to me as well. Drinking doesn’t induce cravings for me, but I know for some it does – which could be an even bigger issue. I try to “eat clean” before during and after a time when I know I’m going to have a few drinks.

    This is a great help… Because I like my Rum and Diet Coke.
    I’ve been looking for a tequila drink for my trips to Mexico – Tequila is 0 carb – and I love No Sugar Rock Star with Tequila. We call it Rocking Rita. :)

    I’m glad to know about the Alcohol Stall… and that it’s not just “me” who get’s frustrated with the scale after a trip down south (we go often).

      As long as you know upfront and expect the stall, it’s not so bad. I had a glass of wine over the weekend myself so I’m going to ignore the scales for a few days 😛

    That’s interesting to know. While I’m usually a beer drinker, I LOVE my Bacardi (and sometime CaptainM) and cokes when the chance comes.
