View Full Version : Alcohol on CKD
10-24-2002, 05:41 PM
In a few weeks, I'm meeting an old friend and I can't promise myself I won't drink. I'm not a huge drinker, but I'll probably have a few. I don't know if I should carb up that weekend or not. Is it better to have alcohol during a carb-up or while low-carbing?

I think it makes a lot more sense during a refeed. Alcohol has a lot of carbs so you'll get out of ketosis anyway.

Liquor doesn't have any carbs.

I'll have a Diet Coke w/rum or vodka. I'm not much of a beer or wine drinker. ;)

Diet coke actually goes better with gin, believe it or not.

Liquor has no sugar in it?

alcohol itself won't kick u out of ketosis - but u are likely to become intoxicated more readily

I know, after having not drank anything in over 2 months, I'm sure it will be a cheap evening. (1-2 drinks max) LOL
I never thought of DC and gin. Hmmm
I am thinking about having Vanilla Vodka & DC (my personal favorite), but if I've got room, I'll try the gin.

Gin is the devil.

To answer the question:
Alcohol itself won't boot you out of ketosis. Too many carbs will.
So, if you must drink, dink something without carbs (or with few carbs), so avoid juice mixers, etc.
I had no trouble having a couple of beers and staying in keto land, same with martinis.
I'd be more worried about the caloric content

Yup, calories will be the problem.
Not to mention that alcohol metabolism shuts of lipolysis.
But calories will be the main problem.
