  1. You don’t have to stop drinking alcohol but cap it at two of these lower carb alcohols.
Blog - 8 alcohol

Drinking can make sticking to healthy habits more difficult in many ways. For one, the extra carbohydrates and calories in alcohol add up. Further, drinking lowers inhibitions – which may make you more likely to eat off plan.

If you know you are going to drink alcohol, stick to lower carbohydrate options and consider using seltzer to cut drinks.

Did you know that alcohol, depending on the amount, is burned as fuel before MCT oil, ketones or body fat and take you out of ketosis?

Remember why you started your diet and how hard it was to get into this healthy state, that may help you resist temptation.
