Hi, ubu1. Alcohol is definitely allowed as a treat in this program. To make it work, you can either substitute what you want for the corresponding exchanges in your menu (you can view them by clicking on “Exchange mode” in the toolbar above any of your current menus), or selecting them in the food lists in the personal version of the Menu Planner (you can access it by clicking on the “My Food Choices” icon in the toolbar above your menu), located in the “Beverages” subcategory of the “Carbohydrates” category.
The following equal 1 carb + 1 fat exchange:
Wine, Red, Dry ~ 4 fl oz or 120 ml
Wine, White, Dry ~ 4 fl oz or 120 ml
Beer or Ale, Light ~ 10 fl oz or 300 ml
Beer or Ale, Regular ~ 7 fl oz or 200 ml
Champagne ~ 4 fl oz or 120 ml
Liqueur, Sweet ~ 1 fl oz or 30 ml
Liquor, Unsweetened ~ 1.5 fl oz or 45 ml
We don’t recommend readymade diet beverages because they use artificial sweeteners, which can work against your efforts here. You would be better off making your own with plain carbonated water, squeezes of fresh lemon or lime or a couple of drops of natural flavor extract (“cola” does exist!) and a high-quality natural low-carb sweetener such as Stevia and/or erythritol.

Are you allowed to have alcohol on this diet plan? How about 0 calorie soda?
