    How much alcohol were your drinking during the week in the past, and what type of drinks?

    It is absolutely normal to loose weight when reducing or stopping alcohol intake. Alcohol is high in empty calories. Also affects our physiology, so I would say this could be a major dietary change in your case.

      I was probably drinking about 2 bottles during Mon-Thu then Friday and Sat and probably a few Sundays however I now only drink Friday's, probably two bottles on a Friday and maybe 1-2 glasses a Saturday.

      I drink Prosecco
