I stopped drinking vodka because I thought I would lose weight faster. I like to drink one to two vodka/diets at night. If you check, my weight loss STOPPED when I gave up vodka. Last vodka on 11/25/2011 and last loss was 11/26/11 AM.

When I was on LA Weight Loss back in 2005 I lost 30+ lbs and I drank almost every night, worked out (cardio) everyday and ate one salad and usually chicken wings or thin crust pizza for snack.

I have been going to the gym everyday (mostly, missed 3 days I think in the last month) I burn 700+ calories on the eliptical and walk my dog 20 minutes a day. Been trying to eat mostly healthy stuff, slip now and then, nothing crazy.

I guess this is a plateau. Should I resume my vodka? Thanks for your input

Hey did U know they make Light Vodka now, That is what I drink with diet soda or whatever. I had 7 shots tonight and it was only 240 calories! I can drink more and not get hungover Just love it. Oh and I still have a few drinks and I have lost 20 pounds so far in 6 weeks.

I drink 3-4 nights a week. And almost every morning after, the scale reflects a loss. Drink up! drinker

alcohol dehydrates you..so if you tend to carry a lot of water weight a shot of vodka will help drinker

It's a weird balance..dieting and enjoying an adult beverage.

I suppose I must clarify...I'm on a low carb diet, and my drink of choice is usually gin and diet tonic. zero carbs. Or dry red wine...very low carbs.

Yeah, DON'T give up VODKA! You can drink in moderation. I've started drinking straight Martini's... they last longer, I sip em, and get to eat those giant olives at the end of it... saturated with vodka... YUM.. Plus I get the best buzz. No hangovers.

Who makes light vodka, which brand? This is amazing news!! Congrats on the loss too BTW

Moderate alcohol consumption is good for overall health, and can also assist in weight loss. Moderate drinkers tend to have healthier weights than non-drinkers.

That's what I want to know - who makes the light Vodka???

Regular vodka is only 70 calories an ounce. If you're going to drink it, drink the real stuff.drinker

Light vodka? Are they just adding water to it? If you had 7 shots and weren't hungover, that what it sounds like they are doing. Alcohol has 7 calories per gram, so I'm not sure how they can make that any less.

Well, Vodka is only 40% alcohol. Real vodka anyway, not sure what "light" vodka even is...

Just thinking a little outside the box here, but if you go to the gym everyday and always do the eliptical for 800 cals at a time, maybe your body adjusting to this is more to blame for the plateau than the alcohol...

Don't get me wrong, I'm all in favour of a moderate amount of the good stuff, but mixing up your workouts might yeild some positive results too.

Thank you, I appreciate all help. I have been thinking I need to change up my cardio too. I am so addicted to my cardio right now.............

Tonight I try the vodka!! This weekend I will try different cardio, like interval treadmill maybe or C25K?
