Alcohol and Keto | Can you drink Alcohol on a Ketogenic Diet?


hey guys it’s Angela today we’re talking about alcohol on a ketogenic diet in case you’re wondering yes you can have some alcohol occasionally on keto if it’s something that you enjoy some acrylic beverages are better than others though in general you should avoid recent cocktails and octopus as much as possible for example a Long Island I see has approximately 32 grams of carbs per 12 ounce glass and something like a smirnoff ice has approximately 31 grams of carbohydrates who knows maybe you’re even able to mix yourself a sweetened cocktail without any carbs at home but just forget the ones you get at a bar next we have beer try to avoid beer as well as it’s usually higher in sugar a 12 ounce bowl of Guinness or Corona has about 14 grams for example if you can’t live without the occasional beer then try to go for light beer instead which can have between 2 to 7 grams of carbs per ball just choose the right one and don’t overdo it if you really enjoy drinking wine then dry wines are going to be your best bet either white or red 1 5 ounce glass of dry wine has about 2 to 4 grams of carbs sweet wines have more sugar dough so pay attention let’s talk about hard liquors and spirits so here’s the good news unflavored pure liquors like vodka gin tequila brandy whiskey or scotch have zero carbs so you can include some occasionally if that’s your craving for their high on your most alcohol skills lock your metabolism so even if you’re drinking hard liquors that have no cards in them and your blood readings show that you’re still in ketosis the alcohol still has to be metabolized first before anything else that means the asshole has to be burned before burning fat or even carbohydrates for energy as a result it will also help fat loss during that time plus spirits still have calories in them that you need to take into account alcohol is never going to be beneficial for your health even if there’s no card sorry I’m coming up to the negative here that doesn’t mean that you can’t include the occasional drink if it significantly improves the quality of your life just keep in mind it will not help you if your primary always losing weight okay now that we’ve got that out of the way you should also know or you’ve probably already realized that you get drunk a lot faster on a ketogenic diet maybe twice as quickly as to what you were used to before if you’re trying to save money you might even say you’re getting more bang for your buck no but seriously just be careful and conscious of that the first time you drink after starting keto you can also experience an intense hangover the next day in order to avoid that as much as possible make sure you stay well hydrated when drinking alcohol and drink a lot of water by the way I left a link to a website called get drunk not fat down below in the description which shows the alcohol by volume the carb content as well as the calories for a lot of drinks so in case you’re wondering how many carbohydrates your drink has or how many calories you drink as might be worth checking out I personally only drink very rarely I might have a small glass of white wine about once a month I’m grateful to have realized a couple of years ago that I don’t need alcohol to have fun but I also never enjoyed drinking that much before so that’s just my personal preference so if you’re going to a bar or Club I’m usually the weirdo just drinks a glass of water popular with some lemon actually the first time I met my girlfriend Josie at a bar the first thing we did together was drinking a glass of water alright that’s it for today’s video before you take off I’d love to know how often do you drink since studying keto and how did it affect your weight loss please let me know in the comments below it was a pleasure as always and if you enjoyed the video please don’t forget to leave a like and subscribe if you want to see more videos in the future I’ll see you soon bye
