I was watching Live Big with Ali Vincent on the Living Well Network. She was one of the Biggest Losers winners. She was discussing alcohol and weight gain. One point she made was that at parties or holiday gatherings, people wanting to lose weight should watch their alcohol intake. She said that fruity drinks not only contain sugar but can add too weight gain. She made a mock Margarita using Crystal Light. So I decided to try this to see what would happen. I used a half jigger of vodka in an 8oz glass of Cherry Flavored Crystal Light. Was delicious and because I controlled the alcohol I did not have to worry too much about over doing it. I would also state that if you cannot have alcohol I would not try this.
