    I've been alcohol-free since October 3. I can't tell if it's been helping at all, but everyone says that if you want to really lose the fat you have to 100% abstain from any alcohol, period.

    I have quit since Labor Day...
    and YES it absolutly has helped get me back to the shape I had
    (prior to the summer beer/ice cream binge) :weightlift2:
    but it takes TIME!!!
    100% is a good rule if you want to lose fat
    if you want a drink, have 1... not 4 or 5 and count it in your daily calories!
    and save it for the "special" times!

    I'm only abstaining to the end of the month and then will gradually work it back in. I hate ditching the red wine as it has heart benefits.

    I don't normally drink much, but I too love red wine. I will only have it occasionally though. I do take reservatrol (which is the prime ingredient in red wine) so you could try that too.

    Speaking of Resveratrol, is there a good supplement on the market? I just read a review about GNC and it's not good.

    So if I drop the alcohol from my diet, I can get really lean?

    From what I'e seen my customers buy. Top plastic surgeon in the area and a heart doc. They swear by it. Only one brand that we carry is worth a damn though from his words not mine and he did a long study on it. :lol: Can't think of the name only what the bottle looks like and that it costs $39.99 for 60caps. Its got grapes on the front if that helps.

    haven't had a drop since starting my contest prep back in July, but I'm looking forward to re-introducing a glass of red wine or a dirty vodka martini on friday or saturday nights.
