On weekend Ketogenic diet with alcohol

Welcome to KetoDrunka Reddit community that counts over 28 currently, members. KetoDrunk is the place where their hilarious hacks for low-carb mixology are tried truly, tested, and championed.

He started KetoDrunk injust as the almost century-old, high fat, very-low-carb diet was becoming trendy. These new adopters of keto were questioning what they were actually allowed to imbibe, and Wiseman hoped to help them. But sugar-free coffee syrup shall. Though whiskey is made from grains Even, you distill a spirit it becomes percent carb-free once.

unflavored spirit gin

Any, vodka, tequila, etc. As with any diet, cognitive dissonance is helpful also. For most people, a Saturday night pounding tequila shots is not an enjoyable way to spend. Not that he needs it usually. The biggest problem for keto mixology is that the majority of these necessitate a sweetener like simple syrup.

Unfortunately, simple syrup-a 1-to-1 blend of water-has and sugar around 28 grams of carbs per ounce, day which is more than most keto dieters aim to consume in an entire. I can bring along some of my own Stevia if I find I need it too. These can have a thin mouthfeel, so some followers add egg whites for extra body-which gives you protein to boot! While certain cocktails like, say, the Manhattan are almost impossible to make keto-friendly-there’s no good substitute for sweet vermouth-others are a cinch.

So, so as you make them with sugar-free triple sec long. Better Even, a 1,calorie Mudslide made with vodka, Ketologie chocolate shake mix, erythritol, milk almond, and heavy cream.

Grenadine is packed with carbs, but you can make an alternative with Diet Ocean Spray. A typical go may use sugar-free coffee syrup, nut milk, heavy cream, and vodka. Remarkably, he figured out how to make keto-kind versions of everything from the Mai Tai to the Fog Cutter to the typically sugar-packed Zombie, for which he swaps in crystalized citrus powder rather than lime juice and makes a grenadine using Diet Ocean Spray Cran-Pomegranate juice.

Many in the group lament the lack of a tasty low-carb beer truly, forced to drink the watery Michelob Ultra. Many instead opt for low-carb alcoholic seltzer or Nude a vodka soda when they desire a canned crusher essentially. Ketosis means that, due to a lack of carb-created glucose, your body burns kept fat, which creates an elevated level of acids in your system called ketones. In the morning to see if enough ketones are present Wiseman simply pricks his blood.

So, how drunk do people get on KetoDrunk exactly? There appear to be two divergent camps vastly. And some do. Beer is high in carbs often, so some opt for spiked seltzer to get KetoDrunk. This theory is unproven. Gawron, for his part, all night long and never get loaded finds he can often drink. Some keto dieters find drinking is longer fun at all no.

There are some bigger health concerns to contend with as well. Bad breath is one, as ketosis causes acetone production ; you may want to bring sugar-free mints on your Tinder date. Rashes are likely, too.

Bloating is possible also, a common side effect of overconsumption of natural sweeteners. Plus, alcohol is a diuretic, after a night of hard boozing which causes many people to flush all the electrolytes from their body. This manifests itself in serious leg and foot cramping often.

Pickle juice has not been tested to be a highly effective source of electrolytes conclusively. Wiseman appeases his drunchies with butter on cheese. We cannot recommend this. Pizza and nachos are off the table obviously. Pork rinds and unsauced chicken wings are a great option, as are bunless burgers and crustless pizza, where browned mozzarella acts as the bottom layer.

No, not in the kind of weight gain, but as one of the legendary hangovers you can only get while on keto apparently, which some practitioners say last up to three days.

  1. great video. Im in the UK. I have just done 3 day beef & butter fast. and am well back into keto. not drinking just now and have dropped 5 lb, but I like to have a drink usually vodka or gin or Jack, and low cal mixer. or just on the rocks. thankyou for the insight, I was beginning to think I was the only Keto nut who liked a drink…..and you look great too.

    1. I am definitely a krazy keto girl that loves to drink. This is the only diet I’ve ever been able to stick to for so long because you can drink (in moderation) and stay in or get right back into Ketosis. I also love the beef and butter fast to get me back in Ketosis when the alcohol has won and eventually kicked me out!! Love hearing from like minded people. Most commenters tell me alcohol is the devil 👿

  2. Just saw this video! Thank you so much for making this. Im thinking about trying the keto diet but I am a Saturday drinker and this video definitely help. Btw what a badass bar in your house!!!

    1. Thank you for watching!! My talented uncle built that bar for us. So keto is totally possible if u drink on weekends but u do need to stop for at least 2 wks to get yourself into Ketosis!!

  3. Thanks for the info… Since it was Saturday, I sipped on a few Jack Daniels over ice last night while hanging out with the wife. I found out what you mean about cheap date… LOL… I used to love my Lagunitas Hop Stoopid 22oz bombers and was horrified when I found out that ONE 22oz bomber has 50g of carbs!!! Holy hell… I guess Ill have to try the Corona Premier in a few weeks.

    1. Mike Charest JD on ice is the perfect keto drink but will hit U hard and fast, lol. I love my corona premier with a lime but they are kinda watery compared to a higher carb beer. Refreshing non the less ❤️

  4. I also have seen a dramatic slow down in my KETO weight loss due to alcohol. I tend to drink the darker alcohols on the rocks. I have done the Hard Seltzers in the summer and basically stick to Ultra in the fall and winter. A new one that actually has some taste is Slightly Mighty by Dogfish Head which has 3.6 carbs per can. Not sure if it is national but you can get it in the Northeast. You are right about it hitting you faster though. As a bartender I will tell you that regardless of diet the less sugary a drink is the less tendency you will have a hangover. So, as a mixer use the club sodas and flavored seltzers. Be careful that the flavored seltzers arent flavored with aspartame. I appreciate these videos and your honesty about being a drinker. Glad to see Im not alone. Sweet bar too by the way. Thanks

    1. Ha! I’ve had a few of those all carbs from alcohol days!!! Shhh. Don’t tell, lol. I have a bar in my house!!! That doesn’t help either ❤️

    2. @Karen’s Krazy Keto Life so you are a northeast resident or at least East Coast. The summer killed me this year and I have since to recover. Trying to be real good now to balance out during holidays. I rarely go over 20 carbs a day…… its all alcohol. Being a bartender doesnt make it any easier.

    3. I find that once I’m in a good state of Ketosis I can be a weekend drinker and get right back in Ketosis during the week but the summertime is a killer. Too much drinking. I’ll have to give that beer a try. Never heard of it. I’ve been tryin to stick to Patron on the rocks with a squeeze of lime and a pinch of salt for Friday happy hour. I am completely honest about my love of alcohol and do take some crap for it but this is me. I’m a you only live once enjoy every second to the extent you can handle and still have a happy stable life type of girl. Oh and thanks for the compliment. I designed the bar and my uncle built it for us after hurricane sandy❤️

    1. @Karen’s Krazy Keto Life everything is a process, trust me I know. The hardest thing about getting started,is getting started…

  5. Loved it so, I subscribed and liked your channel. Can you do the same for my channel

  6. Very informative babe. Lots of options on keto. You look amazing.

    1. Thanks babe 😊 you have to hook me up with frozen margaritas this summer!!!

  7. I am a whiskey girl is there any whiskeys I can have seagrams 7 is my favorite

    1. Christina Reed mix in sparkling water with slice of lemon and lime, on ice. No carbs

    2. Whiskey is a great choice on keto. Just have it straight up or on the rocks and you’re golden. Watch out for any mixers like sour mix which would kick you right out of Ketosis.

  8. Loved the info! Your voice is great for YouTube. It also helps that you look beautiful as well! You seem like a fun laid back person which makes the videos relaxing and enjoyable.

    1. Ha! My N.Y. accent great?? Ok. I’ll take it 😊. Thank you for all the compliments. I’m smiling ear to ear 😃

  9. Fun video. The most popular keto drink is probably the vodka soda, which is vodka (can be a cheaper brand since youre mixing it), club soda, ice, a squeeze of lemon or lime. This is super easy to make at home in a tall glass, and every bar on earth will also know this drink, although bars will usually serve in a short glass so you drink it down more quickly and then order another lol.

    1. Thank you! And yes it is but I get bored very easily. I need to keep mixin things up to keep me entertained and happy. Right now I’m on a tequila on the rocks kick with 2 limes and a pinch of salt. Who knows what next month will bring 🤪 I’ve also heard people carry around those mio water enhancers and give their vodka and club a squirt of sugar free flavor.

  10. My favorite is Diet Cranberry mango juice w Titos Vodka,ice,lime & a dash of Takin chilie powder…mmm good stuff try it

  11. 👍👍,Nice selection of alcohol you have there. Is 🐈 Liam old enough to drink?Looking forward to more great videos. What time does the party start,lol.

    1. It’s always a party at our house!! And Liam is not old enough. That’s why I keep kickin him off the bar!!

  12. Great tips Karen. I don’t drink but people are always asking me about liquor and beer🥰👍💥

    1. Thanks Terri. It’s one of my most asked questions since I started keto so I figured I should address it 😊

  13. Love keto i also agree thats whyi i did keto because i love my booze ha ha P.S you would make a great keto barmaid

    1. Omgoodness!!! Never realized it could be shortened to KKK!!! That’s not good 😬

    1. YES and YES!!! Both on the rocks or neat are perfect. Like I say in my video they will postpone fat loss until the empty calories are burnt off but they wont kick you out of ketosis.

  14. Sounds and looks like you and your family have a liquid drug addiction.. I would recommend 30 days of intensive treatment.. alcohol free is the way to be.. ALCOHOL THE BIG LIE.

    1. Thankfully, I don’t drink enough to get hungover. I can’t remember the last hangover I had. I stick mainly to light beer 😊. I haven’t had a headache in ages. I guess everyone’s tolerance is different. I know my body and what works and doesn’t work. No shots for me!!! That would be ugly.

    2. @Karen’s Krazy Keto Life well from here on out.. you will be plagued with splitting headache.. mornings will now be quite unbearable.

  15. Thank you for this info. I needed this info for when I go out with friends. 🤜🤛

    1. Thank you. I designed it and my uncle built it ❤️
