Please help me tonight, DH has gone off to play snooker, kids in bed and normally I would be settling down with the laptop and a drink and enjoying some peace.

I need some bloody willpower but I haven't got any. Tell me off, for my own good before I go downstairs and get a bulmers!

Mmmmh bulmers <not very helpful>

Step away from the fridge! Go for a walk?

Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels except a really cold bulmers

Sorry I just realised you might actually want a sensible person to give advice and distract you.

Can you do something to occupy yourself? A walk? Clean out a cupboard? Call a friend?

I know, I think I will go on the fucking crosstrainer until the craving stops. Or maybe I will have a vodka and fanta zero grin

Ok, am going to go and cook something delicious for tea and hope that distracts me.

Good idea. Then go on the cross trainer and earn that vodka!

Bulmers is possibly the worst alcohol choice you could make- it's full of sugar. Are you in ketosis? If so, Bulmers will wreck it. If you're going to drink, the best low carb one is spirit and soda. Yuck, I know, but not cake in a glass like Bulmers!

Thanks Makingdoo!

I know Atavistic, yes I'm in ketosis and I know it will. Will have a vodka instead. I lost 5 lbs last week and I don't want to ruin it.

Thank you both!!

A vodka, tonic & a slice of lime wouldnt knock you out of ketosis.

Would it be ok if I had vodka with diet fanta or something instead BlackAffronted? As you can see from the bulmers cravings I have a sweet tooth when it comes to alcohol and I just couldn't drink it with tonic.

I keep in ketosis with cava/ prosecco with diet lemonade or bucks fizz with diet lemonade X
