Can You Drink Alcohol on a Keto Diet?
Yes, you can drink alcohol on a keto diet, but it's important to do so in moderation and make informed choices about the type of alcoholic beverages you consume. Some alcoholic beverages are lower in carbohydrates than others. When on a keto diet, it's best to opt for drinks that are low in sugar and carbs. Examples of lower-carb alcoholic options include vodka, gin, rum, tequila, and whiskey. These spirits typically contain zero carbs.
Keep in mind that your body will prioritize metabolizing alcohol over burning fat for energy. While moderate alcohol consumption can be accommodated in a keto diet, excessive drinking may temporarily halt ketosis until your body has metabolized the alcohol.
