Am I right?
These are crazy, scary times.
And for some of us, when we feel stressed, a little something alcoholic can help take the edge off a bit. Hell, it’s something we can do in the privacy of our own homes, so why not?
But if you’re trying to stay true to your keto diet, then you’ve probably wondered if drinking alcohol will throw you out of ketosis.
Well, the truth is, it all depends on your metabolism and how insulin sensitive you are.
I find sipping a glass or two of red wine in the evenings to be beneficial for my overall outlook and demeanor.
But will it throw my weight-loss efforts into a tail-spin?
You might have heard that hard liquor, like vodka or tequila, can be fine on a keto diet in small amounts.
BUT WHAT IF YOUR ADULT BEVERAGE OF CHOICE IS WINE?
According to THIS ARTICLE FROM PERFECT KETO, both red and white wines can be “dry” enough to sip occasionally. And the occasional glass probably won’t throw you out of ketosis.
Not only do you have to be careful when considering the TYPE of wine you choose, but you also have to remember moderation. And don’t drink too many glasses, or you will definitely throw yourself out of ketosis. And we all know how challenging it can be to get back into fat-burning mode once you start burning carbs for fuel!
Covid was bad enough, with the lock-downs and other restrictions placed upon us. The addition of all this political uproar can drive a person to drink! LOL!
It’s just nice to be informed so that you know the best wine choices for staying on track with your ketogenic lifestyle.
Let me know which drinks or other treats you turn to for help in dealing with stress.
Here’s a LIST OF ZERO CARB FOODS to eat along with that adult beverage!
And if you want to ACCURATELY MEASURE YOUR KETONES after your glass of wine…or anytime you’d like…then I highly recommend this really cool, new KEYTONE Breath Sensor. It’s calibrated via bluetooth with their phone app, so you can actually see and track your personal ketone levels, which is really awesome technology! WAY better and more reliable than the keto sticks! And more cost effective, too! Buy this once and use it forever!
