Can i drink whiskey on the keto diet

Pin This! Luckily, you can like a low carbohydrate drink or two but still achieve success with the ketogenic diet! Alcohol gets a bad reputation since it is actually a concentrated way to obtain empty of calories.

Of course, this will vary based on how much is actually in your beverage. In the event that you order a double, take into account the change in nutrition values. Gin Tanqueray, Beefeater, etc. Tequila Jose Cuervo, Patron, etc.

Scotch Johnnie Walker, Compass Box, etc. Brandy Hine Vintage, Korbel, etc. Please be aware these are for the initial, unflavored versions. For flavored spirits, check through to nutritional information before consuming because they often contain carbohydrates. Craft beer and IPAs are often too high in carbohydrates to enjoy regularly. Lowest Carb Beer The next beer choices are 12 oz per bottle and so are the cheapest in carbohydrates: Bud Select 55 calories, 2g carbs MGD 64 calories, 3g carbs Rolling Rock Green Light: 92 calories, 3g carbs Michelob Ultra: 95 calories, 3g carbs Bud Select: 99 calories, 3g carbs Miller Lite: 96 calories, 3g carbs DAY LIGHT: 95 calories, 3g carbs Michelob Ultra Amber: calories, 4g carbs Coors Light: calories, 5g carbs Amstel Light: 95 calories, 5g carbs Bud Light: calories, 7g carbs Wine I was extremely excited to discover that wine can certainly match the Keto lifestyle!

Fortunately, the fermentation process reduces the carb content. Red wine, specifically, is packed with antioxidants. The following low carbohydrate options derive from 5 oz servings. You will be too safe never! Eat before drinking Always. Believe me. Be skeptical of your meal choices and carb counts while beneath the influence. You can still order the greasy burger from your preferred fast food placebut skip the fries and bun.

Residing in? Keep among my keto recipes prepared or your preferred low carb foods readily available when the munchies strike! Avoid juice and sweetened alcohol peach schnapps, blue curacao, etc.

Remember that when drinking, the body prioritizes the alcohol content and starts to burn it immediately. For some social people, this may result in a stall. In others, it might jump start your bodyweight loss. Test drive it for yourself and observe how the body handles it! Ensure that your electrolytes are in balance.

Failure to take action could lead to an awful hangover or the dreaded Keto flu symptoms. After a night of drinking while others are more dehydrated Some notice more kept water weight. Take caution! A couple of drinks may enough become more than.

FAQS Just how many carbs are in vodka? Haha, I get asked this question always, specifically. Vodka appears to be the liquor of preference for a lot of people including myself. Predicated on the guide, one shot 1. Acceptable to match into your Keto diet Totally. Careful with the sweetened versions because they may include a surprising amount of carbs. What exactly are your preferred low carbohydrate alcoholic drinks on a keto diet?

Will I stay static in ketosis if I consume alcohol? You will stay in a metabolic state of ketosis still, if you don’t consume many carbohydrates too. As mentioned previously, your body prioritizes alcohol and breaks it down immediately. Therefore, you aren’t necessarily burning fat when you are burning away the alcohol. Favorite foods after a nights drinking? I also like whipping up a batch of buffalo chicken scooping and dip with pork rinds!

Keto friendly and super yummy. AM I GOING TO get yourself a hangover on Keto? Most likely. What exactly are your preferred low carbohydrate alcoholic drinks?

Comment below!


  1. Last weekend I bought a extra dry bottle of Chianti. Had one glass. I was as buzzed on one glass as I was when I drank a bottle of wine before ketosis. Btw a dirty martini (triple distilled vodka with green olive juice) is a near perfect no carb or sugar cocktail.

  2. The obsession to be in a constant state of Ketosis seems just as bad as the cult of Veganism.

    • Veganism Is not a cult!!! .. people who are vegan just dont want animals to suffer.!!!

    • Ketosis is simply a state where your body burns fats for energy instead of carbs. If you go out of ketosis and your body shifts back to its default glucose burning, it may take days to get back into ketosis. Thats why you see the obsessive quality about it. If youre going to do stuff to knock yourself out of ketosis every few days you may as well not bother doing keep at all.

  3. As a wine snob, I totally disagree about getting a lower alcohol percentage wine. Usually, the lower you go the more residual sugar. I drink California Zinfandel which tends to be higher in alcohol, 14-16%. I will have 1 glass every night and stay in ketosis. Poor soiI? Bs. If the soil is so poor then why are California wines some of the best in the world? I agree about tolerance. It will not only affect you more but will tend, for me anyway, to give a hangover the next day. Moderation is the key. Cheers!

    • @the lazy carnivore channel Just another deluded snowflake. Go back to MSNBC and keep drinking the Kool Aid. Done.

    • @James Lester oh talking of cognitive dissonance…pot calling kettle black x

    • @James Lester yeah blah blah blah…ps…its ok to research which I did and thats because I am not a brainwashed numpty who believes the drip fed nonsense propaganda which equals goverment agency advice or studies from scientists in their pockets as well as Monsantos. Bye Felicia

    • @the lazy carnivore channel Its okay, someday when you get some miles on you, you will realize that just because you read something somewhere, it doesnt mean make it valid. Its called cognitive dissonance. Im sure you know more than scientists however.

    • @James Lester when someone says fake news…ya kinda know they are the sort of person who deserves to drink wine with Glysophate in it. Ignorance wont save you…I can assure you.

  4. I am drinking in a week only only . So tell me how much ML alcohol 🍷 can consume

  5. Jogging is not good for your health either and plenty birdbrains out there do it.

  6. Yo Anthony. You have so many designations beside your name. Can you explain what all of them are?

    • Doctorate in Chiro, Masters of Science in Sports Rehab, then a bunch of other meaningless alphabet soup

  7. Rum and Coke was my go to. What are your thoughts on having a Rum and diet coke/coke zero?

  8. I’d much rather eat some cannabis butter with coffee. than drink alcohol. I feel so much better, no hangover and it’s keto approved. 🤓✌️

  9. The first time I drank on Keto, about 4 months, boy I hAd a great time but then I went straight home and barely made it to the toilet before I projectile vomited. I hope my comment will save some lovely Keto comrade from that. 2 is the absolute upper limit my friends. And EAT FIRST!!

  10. In one month Keto, stopped my regular 3g sugar/L white wine swapped for vodka with water. Four weeks into Keto, had that 3g/L wine with no effect?? Liver more efficient?

  11. Actually, my second week of Keto, I had a Michelob Ultra and I hated it. But two weeks later I tried it again and it tasted good. Probably I had been without simple carbs long enough where the low carb beer became enjoyable.

  12. American wines win awards in international competitions all the time. I think what you got there is a wine snob.

  13. Bullshit! Not a doctor. This is Youtube… I am a doctor….no I am a doctor. Oh wait…I am doctor. I received my out of a crackerjack box. What a joke.

  14. I wonder, do we feel the effects of alcohol more in keto, because we have dropped water compared to a carb based diet?
    Less water to dilute the alcohol in our body, therefore it is more concentrated and we feel it’s effects accordingly.
    Any ideas?

    • I think a lot of different mechanisms, this totally could be one

    • Lori-Ann Leavitt hi, interesting.
      I wonder how many people feel alcohol more on keto, compared to those that feel it less?

  15. Wrong about tequila regulation… It is one of the most regulated beverages in México. You should investigate about the “consejo regulador del tequila” really important prívate regulation institution.

  16. Tequila with salt and lime at the club. Yes, drinking alcohol, but hey, getting some sodium and vitamin C too. 👍😉

  17. I drink organic vodka ( Prairie) w carbonated water , lemon & cucumber 🥒

    Any thoughts ?
    Please advise 😊

    • Even if your vodka and soda are 100% carb free, you will not be in kethosis while drunk or hungover. And hangovers are extra long and hard.

  18. I drink Single Malt Scotch and water only. And not much water at that.

  19. Females, particularly in high SDI locations, experienced some protective
    effects for ischaemic heart disease and diabetes beyond 60 years of
    age. For males, only high SDI and low SDI locations had noticeable
    protective effects for ischaemic heart disease, but the effect was small
    compared with the total attributable burden in those locations.

    Your comment that even small amounts of alcohol consumption are not beneficial will likely be refuted over the next decade as new studies are produced. This capstone meta-analysis study funded by the Gates Foundation seems pretty agenda driven and somewhat social engineering seeking to me.

  20. Ive been on an alcohol free carnivore diet for 6 months and i decided to drink on christmas day. I 700ml bottle of jagermeister later I was only tipsey. ???

  21. Ive switched to Argentina wines for that reason as well as insecticides…. I allow myself a bottle a week and one glass in a day…

    • I tend towards an Argentinian high altitude Malbec. Presumably, they use less glyphosate. Some commodity USA wines have tested very high for glyphosate.

      There are a handful of organic and or biodynamic California wines I dtink as well.

  22. Been on keto very shortly as a bartender& a professional business FT CS(10yrs+) I figured it would be ideal to drink iced water w olives & Vodka nothing else. What are youre thoughts? Personally I love beer but, i think beer is not good. So just get Chivas, Kettle One etc..

  23. I drink 2 glasses of jack Daniels and waters a day before bed while on the keto diet. I still got into ketosis and lost more than 10kg.
    But 2 glasses makes me a little drunk now compared to 8 glasses I would have before

  24. I drink vodka on ice with lime slice once in a while and I noticed I get drunk so easy when I started on Keto diet

  25. FYI: dry had NOTHING TO DO WITH SUGAR CONTENT. Its taste (relatively labelled) related. Research. 😎 Cheers!

  26. I tend towards rye bourbon or scotch cut with cold water. This is how the Scotts drink their single malts.

  27. I’ve cut back so much, I used to have few glasses of wine a few times a week and would be fine. One glass I’m very tipsy and if I don’t watch my electrolytes a few hours latter I feel like I’ve been poisoned lol so was very easy to cut back!

  28. Cocktail are usually Whisky and Soda for me. If I’m going strong it’s dry martini

  29. Budweiser select 55 has very low carbs and also Corona premiere is low in carbs ..

  30. I think keto has ruined my love of Champagne 😢 & many wines (i only drink dry anyway)…I noticed on Christmas & NYE I just tasted them & politely poured them out…however, I have been craving dry/dirty martinis! Had a silver tequila on the rocks w a heavy squeeze of lime w salt & talk about the best “margarita” ever!

    • Lori Ann Leavitt. The dryness of the wine has EVERYTHING to do with the sugar content of the wine. The only thing is that alcohol , tanin, acidity etc. affect the sugar levels as well. But the primary thing that affect the dryness is the sugar content. Thats why I only drink dry red. (Cabernet Sauvignon if I have choice)

    • dry had NOTHING TO DO WITH SUGAR CONTENT. Its taste (relatively labelled) related. Research. 😎 Cheers!

  31. if you drink alcohol you are absolutely not taking your diet seriously so stop the bullshit 💩

  32. You made me lol when you used the words cheap date, before starting keto 8 weeks ago I could drink anyone under the table, but now 2 double vodkas with diet soda and Im a happy drunk 😝🤪🙃

    I actually avoid alcohol but have it on special occasions, friends/family birthdays for example.

  33. I told my brewer husband he had to stop his two beer a day habit to get into ketosis he refused and to my amazement his ketone level was higher than mine. Just not fair he can break all the rules and still lose faster than I do.

  34. the reason why get drunk faster is exactly the amount of water in your body cells

    -people with bigger weight are more likely to be more resistant to alcohol simply because they got more water within their body
    -women get drunk faster than men simply because on average they got 10% less liquid within their cells

    -to me -simply vodka is the answer (though never been a fan of it) -helps during the keto flu as well

    hydration and electrolytes obviously are important so mineral water is the answer
    sorry for my eastern europian but i couldnt resist

    • johnvjr24 mentioned it 1 month ago: the mezcal he mentioned, El Jolgorio Tepeztate. 🙂

  35. I started Keto September 3rd 2018 n lost 35 lbs. I’m totally fat adapted so when I drink some really filthy dirty martinis or shots of some good ol’ reposado mescal with salt n lime all is good so long as I mind my magnesium n salts.

  36. before I was keto, I was low carb and loved going to beer fests. I found that carb loading made me able to consume a larger amount of alcohol. I believe keto makes me a cheap date for two reasons. 1) I simply dont drink as often 2)depleted liver glycogen. A real martini doesnt have sugar in it. Manhattans have a small amount from sweet vermouth. if I have one, it hasnt been an issue. Heres a topic I think you should cover: how does injury effect ketosis and weight loss/gain.

  37. If these guys were to have sex with each other, who do you think would be the top and who would be the bottom? Also, which guy is larger hung? i know my answers… how about you all? Bonus question: How many of you think these guys DO have sex with each other?

  38. I dont now about beer in general, but good LAGER ( brewed adhering to the ancient Bavarian purity laws) does NOT have sugar in it! This is because during the *extended fermentation process* , the yeasts devour all of the sugar.

    • sequi-tur → dont just look at sugar. If you are serious about keto youll want to look at net carbs. Starches and other carbs behave like sugar in the body. PS, I see you refer to the Bavarian purity laws, not the lesser German purity laws. Good for you.

    • @Dr. Anthony Gustin Lager brewed according to the purity laws does not contain wheat, as it is made with Barley.

      Red Oak Lager from North Carolina is the best in the USA.

    • Interesting — A skip for me due to the sensitivity to gluten and wheat

  39. any drop of alcohol is actually bad for you not backed up with any source at all, why should anyone believe you guys over anyone else?

  40. I cant drink wine due to salicylate content. Vodka has been my go to and perfect for keto. Vodka soda yes!

    • J C have you tried tequila? Google tell me that it has fewer calories, have no experience but might gain some this weekend

  41. Unicon syrup with respberry svedka that’s what I drink and I don’t have to worry about getting kicked out of keto 😉

  42. japanese whiskey (high quality as possible) stevia ginger ale (diet ginger ale) w lime on ice … whoa

  43. For me, its Silver tequila lime and salt…used to be a vodka drinker until I found out that tequila has 30 percent fewer calories…plus its a lot easier to drink straight to avoid the mixers…also do a bit of homework into what your drinking….amber-or gold-colored alcohols might contain caramel in them for their look…not all alcohols are equal…

  44. champagne is the best, then straight liquor in soda wader with a bit of citrus is keto friendly. and yea the affect is doubled. California wins are great, poor soil is a bullshit lie. beer is oxalate poison and fattening.

  45. I like mixing vodka, soda, WITH ultima electrolytes. Deeeeeelicious. 😍

  46. I did a 5 day all inclusive in Mexico and did surprisingly well. Every morning I ate a massive plate of bacon sausage and eggs and did water until 1 or so when I started partying and then it was mostly goose and soda and whatever random shots that came my way. I swear I looked better after I came back then when I left. Maybe dehydration though.

    • Probably dehydration haha but sounds like you didnt have too many set backs

  47. 6:51 I have hardly had any pimples througout my life; however I get painful acne from eating potato chips; how come?

  48. I would like to ask. Is GKI (Glucose Ketone Index) accurate? Is it useful to distinguish if you are doing keto strong enough to help with epilepsy or other neurological disease? thanks

  49. You should really address the after effect of drinking on ketosis. My understanding, and I’ve felt this myself several times, is that magnesium levels plummet when you drink alcohol. It’s already difficult to maintain electrolyte levels while on ketosis, so this can lead to some pretty terrible keto flu or just general illness.

    • Thats what Im looking for. The aftermath. Ive been keto for 2 years. And while in ketosis, my hangovers feel like death. Im dizzy, lightheaded, nauseous…and over all just feel terrible!! Electrolytes are so important!!

    • Sadly no. Tonic contains a fair amount of sugar. Which sucks, as its my usual go to. I switched to soda with squeeze of lime 🙂
