Keto Food Questions

Why can’t I drink beer on keto?

Beer is very keto-unfriendly. When you consume beer, you deplete your nutrients, including:

  • Sodium

  • Potassium

  • Magnesium

  • Calcium

You can also experience a situation called hyponatremia, which means extremely low sodium in your blood. This can cause:

  • Dizziness

  • Weakness

  • Seizures

  • Headaches

  • Coma

  • Inability to think

  • Confusion

  • Nausea

Also, when you drink beer, you can experience deficiencies, which then cause health issues that require medications, which can also deplete more nutrients – a repeating cycle that can really affect your health.
