How to calculate those MACRO’s and Calories while celebrating Weddings or the Holidays?
While this year I plan to lose 59 pounds, I have already started my journey with a weight loss of four pounds. Thank you. I intend to utilize IIFYM which is not new to me but simply a good way for me to stay on track.
This year I am attending three weddings and I have one down two to go. We have all been down that dieting track where we start to lose focus and binge. So I decided to plan my eating weeks prior as in 3 weeks. Sooooo…how you say do you count that booze you’re going to drink? Good question, I have thought of that for you.
While I am not a big boozie, as I often drank on a weekly basis in college. I have since rarely touched a bottle unless I go to a cocktail party, a girl’s night out, wedding, holiday party etc. Other than that Alcohol is zero. However, my lovely friends are throwing an adult only wedding and I intend to have a great time!
I know my favorite drink is Veuve for Champagne or Premium Vodka. In my later years I had developed Psoriasis and have outed Beer altogether. Even though sometimes I do knock back an Omission or Angry Orchard. It is usually during Superbowl, go figure (Gluten-Free Beer).
These are the figures I have come up with…

There are many posts out there how to calculate Alcohol as a Fat or a Carb, but I would say really take into consideration exactly what you will be drinking instead of getting a generalized Calculation. That way you can decide what is best for your diet. Therefore, I have decided two shots of Vodka will leave me plenty of room to eat full and flex room.
Remember, when you treat yourself, get ready to work hard in the gym and prove that you deserve that treat and that you are serious about your plans.
Peace & Love!
