One of the things I’m finding most difficult about clean eating is cutting back on booze. I know, #firstworldproblem, right?
I’m by no means a huge partier (instead, I’m a 26-year-old who knits and drinks tea while she watches Law and Order: SVU), but I do like my Caesars and Long Islands on the weekends. Aw, hell, even on the occasional weeknight.
I haven’t eliminated alcohol from my diet, even though alcohol is a no-no in the clean-eating world. I’ll have a drink or two (or ten) in a social setting, health be damned, because I feel lame when my friends and I go for drinks and I order “vodka and water, hold the vodka.” (And no, this isn’t a peer pressure thing.)
As with any other cheat, moderation is key. If I have a few drinks at a party, I’ll be extra careful with my diet or work out a little harder for the next few days. Even so, I’d like to cut down on booze even more. Those empty calories are not helping my wobbly bits, nor is the McDonald’s I inevitably consume when I’m slightly intoxicated.
So, fellow bloggers, what kind of tips can you offer a girl tryin’ to cut back on the sauce? Any suggestions would be mucho appreciated.
