The reason we are asked to avoid alcohol is that it is empty calories (which will slow down your weight loss) has no nutritional value and you get drunk very, very quickly. When we are drunk, we make wrong choices sometimes 🙁 Also, there is the underlying threat of transferred addictions – from food to alcohol. I know this sounds really miserable and negative but it has to be considered I guess.

For future reference, you could be under the legal limit to drive but actually be very drunk. I’m 3 years post op and sometimes have one or two glasses of wine. However, I’m pretty squiffy on that when before I could drink anyone under the table!!

Sorry to be such a spoil sport.
