Red Red Wine or Something Else?

Does red wine.....besides being good for the head .....make any one else hungry after a couple of glasses? What if any is your favorite adult beverage....that you can have and still stay on track?

    I drink Bud Light, 110 calories per serving 2 to 4 a night (well I will when I get off overnights) always have and have always maintained figure and weight regardless.

    I have a cheat day during the week, in that cheat day I usually drink a more fruity higher calorie drink like Fuzzy Navals, or Sex on the beach. I even do the max allowed long island ice teas sometimes. :D But usually it's just bud light.

    Wish I could help you out with the answers to red wine but it only gives me a raging headache; therefore, not hungry! lol I don't drink much either but occasionally have had no sugar added cranberry juice, Malibu rum, seltzer water and ice.

    Yes, red wine makes me hungry. I think all adult beverages make me hungry, except maybe beer because it's so filling and caloric. I also don't drink much (because I don't like a lot).

    How do you do it? I would be 300 pounds....would never get away with it. I love Guiness Sam and Bass...but do not drink it that often.

    I didn't know Neil Diamond wrote that song. Anyway, When UB40 did the cover I was 5.

    I wonder if the key to our success has been the Irish genes, or the booze! I've also had drinks all throughout my weightloss. :drinker:
