One of the things that attracted me to 5:2 was that it would almost force me to have 2 alcohol free days. I only drink now on non-fast days, and even then I'm finding that the alcohol kicks in much quicker - I'm having to retrain myself to slow down, or alternate with glasses of water.
I've not really cut down weekend drinking though although I've stalled on weight loss in the last 3 weeks so may have to reconsider that.
I too was consuming alcohol probably every day and i have now cut it out during Mon-Thurs with a few relapses but not on fast days. However I feel free to drink wine at the weekend - I like the taste and not fond of the diet free or mixer type drins - too sweet for me.
Does anybody unit count out of interest?
More like heaven in a glass, LOL!
Will raise a glass to you all tomorrow night (as I'm fasting today)!
Had to laugh at that redhead, it's soooo meeeee !!!!!!
I implemented a minor change this weekend which seems obvious but made a big difference - I measured my spirit shots with a little measuring cup. So I only had 30mls of spirit in each drink and I didn't drink any more quickly or more than usual.
5:2 is definitely giving me more 'control' and less fear of trying changes and cutting down on things.
