Congrats PrimeTime32. Any tips for maintaining? Especially when everything is feeling good, I feel tempted to drink beer.
I don't know if this is a wagon-approved method. But I've found that the new Heineken 0.0 is awesome for whenever you just want that beer taste or want to have a beer in your hand during a social event (like summer barbecue, most don't do mixed drinks). 69 calories (140+ in normal) and it tastes great. Also it's a true <0.05% no alcohol beer. There's more alcohol in ripe fruit.
I usually have one after an intense run or gym sesh, hydrates and the phenols help with recovery/sleep. I think it could also be psychologically beneficial because it detaches the former sloppy buzz "reward" from the act of drinking at social events. You can just do your own thing. And in my experience nobody ever notices unless you point it out, same bottle shape.
