If I'm not mistaken, any alcohol you drink is metabolized into sugars which are burned before any stored energy would be, so alcohol is a no-no for Atkins.
Look on the bright side, you can eat as many baconburgers you want, you'll just have to stay sober.
I don't know why it's ok - it just is 'cause I say it is! Seriously, for whatever reason, when I drink clear liquors (vodka, gin, clear rum, etc.) with a no carb soda, I'm good to go. I've hit this diet a few times since 2004 and always have had success in the short term. I ALWAYS combine it with exercise. I don't feel committed to the diet unless I exercise and then it is too easy to quit watching what I eat. Next thing you know, I'm back in the drive through.
I'm not a big guy. 5'7" and 159 right now. I'm just trying to tone the beach muscles before we go to Myrtle Beach in May. I figure the diet and the 100 pushups/200 situps combined with some cardio and other limited weight training will get it done.

you should give Hendricks a try...someone reccomended it on the Dark Side...it's a little bit different tasting gin though
Christmas in your mouth. Now that's funny. I'll have to use that on my wife next time I'm trying to get her to taste...ah never mind.
Thanks for the recommendation on Hendricks. I'll give it a shot.
