Keto Food Questions

Can I drink alcohol while fasting?

No. Alcohol does not turn to sugar – so is alcohol keto-friendly? Despite the fact that it doesn’t turn to sugar or raise insulin levels, the alcohol calories will turn into fat. Within one minute, it’s already into your bloodstream and up to your brain.

Alcohol goes to the liver, where the liver considers it a priority. In the liver, you have an enzyme that breaks the alcohol down into a highly toxic chemical. This chemical can create:

  • Fibrosis

  • Inflammation

  • Fatty liver

  • Oxidation

It can also stop fat burning.

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 to counter the complications, side effects, and nutritional deficiencies that alcohol can create.
