I’m still trying to figure out how to add alcohol to my meal plans. What is the personal version of the Menu Planner? The exchange mode is like a foreign language to me. Is sweet wine or something like a margarita allowed?

Hi, stephen.annemarie3. Each 2/3 cup (5 fluid ounces or 160 ml) hard apple cider is a carbohydrate exchange.

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
