Low carb alcohol
Oh, another day of drinking wine. There used to be months without me having even a sip of alcohol and now there just seems to be so many things worth celebrating. I am very happy right now, so I am certainly not complaining. I do not know how alcohol affects ketosis but I have heard that the body consumes the alcohol first, so alcohol is unlikely to turn into fat. Any energy intake surplus will be stored, however. I believe that neither sugar nor alcohol should be consumed no matter what diet. Yet, if you are like me and want to enjoy la dolce vita once in a while, go for moderate amounts of dry red or white wine (3 carbs / 125 ml). The sweeter the wine, the more carbs it is likely to contain. Check out this site for more info.
