Cocktails! Say, how about the Low Carb Way?

It's very easy to be a bad girl much too often in Vegas with all of the delicious eats and endless posh bars in town.  I went out last night with friends and still managed to be good (until I slipped up and had a piece of Wolfgang Puck Pesto pizza at 4am, but anyhow).  With all of this nightlife at my fingertips, it inspired me to let you know of a couple of easy cheats to have different kinds of cocktails while you are out or at a party without ruining your "Good Girl" days.

Note:  These are just a few Low Carb Cocktail recipes.  Enjoy, enjoy and if you have one, share!  I will post it on my blog for all the boys and girls to see and try.


1/4oz gin
1/4oz rum
1/4oz vodka
1/4oz tequila
1/4oz triple sec
1oz sugar-free sour mix
dash diet coke

Put all into a shaker with ice and shake briefly. 


2oz whiskey
diet ginger ale

Serve on the rocks with a twist of lime.


1/2 tsp orange extract
1 packet Splenda (or 2 tsp powdered)
1 tsp water
1 shot tequila
1/8 tsp lime juice
1/4 tsp lemon juice

Serve on the rocks and rim the top of the glass with salt if you like.


1/4 cup STRONG brewed coffee
1/4 cup Splenda
1 tsp vanilla
4oz vodka
4oz brandy
2oz (1/4 cup) low carb milk

Serve on the rocks.

THE $100 DIET VODKA SPECIAL (replaces the sugar and carb loaded Vodka Tonic)

1 shot of Vodka
Fill the rest of the tumbler with Pelligrino or Perrier
Crushed ice
Twist of lime

Serve on the rocks.


1 shot of vodka
2 slices of lemon
2 packets of Splenda
0 calorie seltzer

Mix the first three ingredients together, then put in a tumbler on the rocks and fill the rest of the glass with seltzer.

How about that?  I have a ton of easy low fat recipes and easy low carb recipes in the good girl section of my cookbook.

Feeling Blue is GOOD (In certain circumstances)

Here are just a few tricks and tips that I thought I would share that keep my girlish figure nice and trim.  I experimented with a ton of things from celebrity diets and found that these things actually work!  Mind over matter is a great practice to implement, as the mind is half the battle to accomplishing anything.  If you mind says you can, than the lovely body follows.

1.  Tapas style meals.  I like to eat a lot of different things in small amounts, preferably on cute little dishes.  I like to try a variety/sampling of foods in one meal, and even when all of that adds up, it's still far less calories than a whopping one dish monster on a huge plate.  Plus it's more fun and the strange thing is, it makes me feel like I'm having a little tea party like you did when we were all little.  Ha!

2.  Blue dress, blue plate, blue blue blue all around.  Eat off a BLUE salad-sized plate, wear more blue dresses and articles of clothing in your wardrobe, etc.  Scientific research shows that blue is the least appetizing color, and eating with that color plate will decrease your appetite and help you lose weight fast and easily.  Notice how all fast food restaurants are colored in oranges, reds and yellows?  Those colors are the ones that actually get people in the mood to eat.  But not blue!

3.  Stay BUSY.  For me when I am busy and running around like a chicken with my head cut off, I eat far less and actually forget sometimes (which isn't great, so that's not a good thing).  But it's true...if you are out and about and going and doing and getting things done or even just keeping busy with extra ciricular activities, you just don't think about it.

Guess what?  I am now an "expert author"  on!  I will be featured on their home page in two days! It's an honor and I am so excited!!!

If you want to lose the maximum amount of weight in a short amount of time, you have to download the book.  I have an emergency starter fast weight loss plan that kicks those pounds off your bod.  

What do you have to lose?  Except those pounds of course.

I will be back with more exciting news tomorrow....
