Yes, I am prone to the occasional alcoholic binge
I have tried to set myself limits, but I always exceed them! So, now I have only two rules, which are:
1. No hangovers
2. No drinking at home alone
That generally keeps me out of trouble. Plus I don't get to go out that much anymore... I have no friends
It definitely does slow down weight loss, but then so does an entire tub of icecream or a packet of chocolate biscuits
Just factor it into your calorie allowance.. and enjoy!
