    I don't drink alcohol for the nutriotion, I drink it to have a good time. If the ATkins center can provide a replacement to alcohol that is nutritious, gets me drunk, and doesn't make me look gay drinking it I'll gladly give up alcohol.

    The alcohol thing is in Atkins For Life, not in DANDR. AFL was published in 2003, whereas the most current edition of DANDR was pulished in 2002. So technically, AFL has the most recent information.

    I'm at home today getting over a bout of bronchitis and a touch of laryngitis...so calling the Atkins Center might not be a good idea for me to do

    But in my earlier post, I copied the sectoin about alcohol in OWL and cited the chapter and page numbers in AFL that dealt with it.

    As for caffeine, Dr. A, said no caffeine, even during Induction.

    But now the Atkins Center says 1 8oz cup of caffeinated coffee a day is ok On this one - I went to **** and back in induction giving up coffee, so I am NOT adding it back on a regular basis

    Course, they may have added it back because their Accel contains 'naturally occurring caffeine.' That's the stuff I tried ONE day and it kept me up ALL night

    Now, the wine is a big problem for me. Used to be, I could open a bottle, and keep it going for several days. But now it lasts so long it goes bad before I can get to it Too bad I can't freeze it

    I'm smack bang in the middle of OWL, and I'm keeping my 1 glass of wine per week. You can make me stop, you can't, you can't! I had to give up peanuts already, not giving up my glass of wine! **sulks**

    I don't think so - one of the mods called the Atkins Center and got that info iirc.

    You can preserve opened bottles of wine. They sell this stuff that comes in a can that you can spray in the bottles, and then recap them to preserve the wine for a week or two.
