    So, us diabetics can all be on alcohol diets now!!!!! Adequate carbs, and nutrients from grapes, malt etc....and feeling fine!!!! We have trouble keeping our driving licences, so this could make the acceptance of losing them easier.....and as alcoholics we would be able to claim for benefits, council houses etc.......WIN, WIN, WIN!!!!! :p :lol: :p BRIL!!!! Starting Friday.......forget all this low carb, high carb **** and debates.....this diet could be the one for me....!!!!!

    You've quoted me but referred to Nigel, we are two very distinct and separate beings :wink:

    However, if you did mean me, I too am chilled like the lettuce and tomatoes in my fridge :lol:

    Think of all the benefits from this alcohol diet
    No more comparing prices of cauli in Lidl and Aldi
    No more reading labels in Tesco
    No more shopping ,just e-mail your nearest booze shop and place a standing order
    No need for a fridge or freezer(sell these on e-bay)
    No more washing up
    No more using gas or electric to cook
    No need to use car or bus
    No more blood tests(these would show as neat alcohol)

    I put all these advantages to my better half but he said he couldnt manage without his steak :mrgreen: Ah well it seemed a good idea at the time :(

    I seem to recall hearing about a period in history when the populace were encouraged to drink beer rather than water... especially in the big cities; it was cleaner, safer and more nutritious 8)

    Hi sanober I was refereing to both posts, but I'm not very good with this "quote" malarky. :oops: As I said no offence to anyone intended, just a bit of fun to lighten up the forum, with probably a bit of sarcasm and a bit of truth :wink:

    aye, but they reckon filtering your water takes some nutrients out of it and buying sparkling water can raise your potassium and sodium levels. So I guess it's not that healthy. That's why the vet is coming to me tomorrow.........
