OK so I'm going to admit something here...
On nights I have a date I don't eat dinner! I save my points for beer! BAD GIRL!
Haha. I do make sure I get my daily requirements in during the early part of the day though! I typically eat a big bowl of veggie soup before I go then the rest of my points are all mine to drink, guzzle and swig! For me this works well for 2 reasons....
1. I catch a buzz quicker!
2. I don't go over my daily points.
3. No dinner makes me a cheap date!
4. The soup makes me have to pee alot so I think I earn an activity point or two speed walking to and from the ladies room :)
