Will Zero Carb Alcohol Stop Ketosis?

Alcohol does not turn to sugar. So, is alcohol Keto friendly?

Has carbs:

• Beer

• Wine 

• Mixed drinks 

• Coolers

Has no carbs:

• Whiskey 

• Vodka

• Brandy

• Tequila

• Dry martini 

Alcohol has seven calories per gram, whereas carbohydrate has four calories per gram.

These calories have to go somewhere. Despite the fact that it does not turn to sugar or raise insulin levels, the alcohol calories will turn into fat. Within one minute, it is already into your bloodstream and up to your brain.

Alcohol goes to the liver, where the liver considers it a toxin so it gives priority above carbohydrates, protein and fat.

In the liver, you have an enzyme, which breaks the alcohol down into a highly toxic chemical, acetaldehyde.

Even in small concentrations and this chemical has the ability to create major damage to your body.

This chemical can create: 

• Fibrosis

• Inflammation 

• Fatty liver

• Oxidation

It will definitely stop fat burning because there are calories available to be used as energy and be converted to fat.

For your body to process the alcohol it needs certain nutrients so the more alcohol you consume the more you deplete these nutrients.

Alcohol depletes:

• Vitamins B1 and B12

• Folate 

• Zinc

• Vitamins D and A

• And more

Realize what your body has to do to get rid of this alcohol. If you’re going to drink, try to drink small amounts and make sure your diet is super healthy, full of phytonutrients, to counter the complications, side effects, and nutritional deficiencies that alcohol can create.
