Spirits tend to be low carb. Wine is okay in small quantities (e.g. a glass or two a couple of times a week). Beer, cider and alcopops are very carby and should be avoided. The bigger issue with wine is the alcohol. Your body has to process it immediately and while it is doing that fat burning will stop. So any amount of alcohol will slow your weight loss. Some people find they can indulge occasionally and still lose weight, other people find they have to cut it out entirely.
