KETO AND ALCOHOL CAN YOU DRINK WHILE ON KETOGENIC DIET

July 24, 2019 2 By William Morgan


with fourth of July coming up there is
an important question which needs to be
answered
can you drink alcohol on keto diet or
are all alcoholic beverages off-limits
that’s what we’re gonna look into today
hey guys welcome to my channel it’s Iva Scelfo and today we’re gonna talk about
booze yes yes you can drink on keto diet
having a drink or two doesn’t
necessarily mean you’re gonna be kicked
out of ketosis but your options are a
little limited when you are on a keto
diet you know good that all carbs counts
and alcohol unfortunately is packed with
lots of carbs and lots of sugars you
basically have to stay away from most of
the beers and mixed sweet cocktails well
there are some low carb option in PS but
in my experience they’re not really
worthy I didn’t like it but you can try
it for yourself and let me know if you
did dry wine is okay so champagne red
wine white wine there are about 3 grams
of carbs so if that fits your macros you
can definitely have a glass or two
Cabernet Sauvignon or Pinot Grigio is
usually my choice you can also have a
liquid but a gin rum tequila all those
are either zero carbs or very low in
carbs you can mix them with club soda or
any type of sparkling water without any
added sugar this is a type of wine I do
have home it’s Cabernet Sauvignon well
you gotta also understand that one glass
of this wine is about 250 calories so if
you would enjoy two glasses throughout
the night it’s almost 500 calories well
for me it’s my whole lunch or a whole
dinner so when you wanna drink you do
really have to think and count
what’s your rudder I don’t know do you
wanna eat a steak or a glass of wine
then we carry in our freezer some vodka
recently I had a chance to try these
truly
this is a spiked sparkling water it has
five person of alcohol only hundredths
calories and less than one gram of sugar
and less than two grams of carbohydrates
which is pretty a great option when you
unlock up keto diet you can have a nice
mixed drink with vodka it would be
around 200 calories and two grams of
carbs so this is a really great to go
for a party or social events oh and you
just want to relax and enjoy a drink so
you can definitely enjoy drink or two
while you’re on keto diet but just
always remember that alcohol is full of
empty calories if you’re trying to lose
weight you definitely have to count
alcohol calories into your daily macros
also alcohol will be always metabolized
before anything else in the liver as its
toxin everything else will be paused so
if you decide to have a drink or two you
have to understand that you’re actually
turning off the body’s ability to burn
fat for fuel and that unfortunately will
end up stalling your weight loss
progress so me personally I did decided
that I will have only one or two drinks
for a whole week because I’m definitely
now on my weight-loss journey and I need
to lose some weight and I know that
keeping drinking a glass or two of wine
couple times a week will definitely
stole my progress and I don’t want that
so at the end yes you can have a drink
and still be in ketosis but if your goal
is weight loss you might want to
consider that you definitely want to
avoid all drinks with high carb high
sugar content as they would definitely
kick you out out of ketosis you would
definitely be over your daily
carbohydrates limit so if you do not
mind that your weight-loss progress will
be stalled then go ahead and you can
definitely enjoy a glass of wine or some
vodka with some non sugar a mixture of
whatever your preferred drink would be
you don’t have to worry to be kicked out
of ketosis unless you go over your daily
carbs intake
so thank you guys so much for watching
this video if you did like it please
give it a thumbs up and also enjoy your
Independence Day with or without the
drink and I’m gonna see you again soon
in another video bye
