Hey- Well it's finally time to ring in another new year-THANK GOD! I had a really bad year last year... Anyways- What is the "best" thing to drink socially that wont hurt my diet too much??? I hear red wine is good- what about white, or zifindale? How about some champagne... BEER. I rarely drink but I know I will tonight and I was just wondering!!!

anything is fine in moderation. Try to keep it under 3 drinks and stay away from the sugary drinks. liquor mixed with any diet beverage is good. Red wine is good and if you like beer have a couple of light ones just don't go overboard. Happy new year!

hubby and i rarely drink either, but comon its the new years :) its ok to have a little cheat fun!
we like those bacardi silver and mikes light. low in sugar and under 100 cals. ive had red wine with that seltzer stuff and thats pretty good too. any small amount of hard liquor mixed with a diet soda....wow i sound like an alcoholic! but not at all, i just know a lot of party people. have fun and be safe all!

why do u even care about the calorie content.
if ur worried about a couple cals why even drink. doesnt make sense to me.
party hard or dont party =)

Well....that kind of depends on what your goals are. If you're cutting for a competition, I was told that "alcohol has NO place in a cutting diet"
Guess this year's not going to be as exciting as last....

Dont drink much and when I do, it is more for the "taste" or to relax. Dont see any reason to get too high or drunk.
When younger and stupid....cannot stand the taste of wine anymore.
Most American beers give me a headache and have no "taste" no matter what they say. But English stouts and ales are fine occasionally. Something you can "chew" tastes best to me. Have found a few hard liquors I dont mind having a shot once in a while. Since swearing off sugar when starting to lift, two years ago....any of the liquiors are just too sweet anymore.
Had a shot of Swedish "Thor's Hammer Vodka" for New Year's.
