Without a doubt, the toughest part of the weight loss challenge is limiting cocktail time. But I’ve come up with a few rules so I can rationalize keeping cocktails in my diet:
Include fruit (fruit juice acceptable, but not preferred).
All mixers must be calorie free.
Follow these rules and I can have a cocktail, or maybe two, with just a little less guilt.
