    I'm an 80/20 kind of person. As long as you eat right 80% of the time, 20% of "fun" is ok. One night with a few drinks is fine. If it's every night, it's probably not so fine.

    YES! - Your wife is right, one or two won't hurt you, you should enjoy your time with your friends!

    Can you drink one without wanting more? It's a matter of self control, if you have it do it.

    I'll be different and vote "no." If originally you weren't going to, then stick with that.

    If you want it, have it. If you're going to wake up in the morning and regret it and feel awfully guilty, then don't.

    There's nothing wrong with having a bit of fun and a few drinks now and then, as long as you're not doing it everyday, but at the same time you should only do it if you really want to, not just because the situation calls for it and you're most likely to beat yourself up about it later.

    What do you usually drink?
  • I save my calories so i can drink during the weekend i drink JD which is 55 calories per 25ml shot so depending on how many cals you have left will determin how much you can drink (if you dogo over dont stress make up for it tomorrow)
  • The advice I've always heard is Alcohol then a pint/large glass of water after. Helps keep the calories in check, counts as your water for the day, reduces drunken-ness and helps the hangover the next day!

    I was downing the vodka last night and woke up a few pounds lighter... Alcohol doesn't hurt but drink in moderation.... Have fun:)
