View Full Version : Alcohol on a carb load

Today's my carb load and I'm going out drinking tonight. I'm wondering what my choice of poison should be, what effect will alcohol have on partioning? I drink spirits and mixers, the question is should they be sugary mixers or diet coke?

The less fructose the better, but then again since you're opting to drink, doesn't sound like you care too much for details. :D

Anyhow, I'd stick to shots of unbastardized liquors like vodka and whiskey. Mixers are just gonna add up to too much fructose.

I had always heard it was bad to drink on the carb load, because alcohol dehydrates you.

Not that it has ever stopped me from pounding them on the weekends; in my opinion its a lot better to do it in the carb load then to do it while you're low-calories during the week.
