Today we're talking about alcohol on Keto. Can you drink alcohol on a Ketogenic Diet or should it be avoided? Keto Collagen: https://youtu.be/uQM7D_Ssavo In case you're wondering - yes, you can have some alcohol occasionally on Keto, if it's something that you enjoy. Some alcoholic beverages are better than others though. In general, you should avoid drinks like sweet cocktails and alcopops as much as possible. For example, a typical Long Island Iced Tea has 32 grams of carbs per 12 oz. and something like a Smirnoff Ice has 31 grams of carbohydrates. Maybe you're even able to mix yourself a sweetened cocktail without any carbs, but forget the ones you get at a bar. Next we have beer: Try to avoid beer, as it's usually higher in sugar - a 12 oz. bottle of Corona or Guinness has about 14 grams for example. If you can't live without the occasional beer, then go for a light beer which can have between 2-7g of carbs, so choose the right one. Still, don't overdo it. Wine: If you enjoy drinking wine then dry wine is your best bet, either white or red. One 5 oz glass of dry wine usually has between 2-4g of carbs. Sweet wines have more sugar. Hard liquors and spirits: Unflavored, pure liqu

Why No Alcohol With Metformin?

On my Metformin bottle it says to avoid alcohol while taking this drug. Anyone know the real reason why? My pharmacist couldn't really answer that and my Endo. couldn't give me a real good answer either. She just said that she thought it was because Metformin works with the liver and that alcohol also messes with the liver and that's the only reason she could think of. But she didn't seem to think it was a big concern unless you were overdoing it with the alcohol. Anyway, does someone know the real reason they put that on the label? Looking for a more technical description of why I can't take both at the same time. I googled "metformin and alcohol interaction," and the link said that alcohol increases the lactic acid production. Since lactic acidosis icould be a possible side effect of metformin in some individuals, drinking a lot of alcohol with it might mean a "double whammy," if you were prone to the lactic acidosis. I have a drink or two and am on metformin, and have had no problems. I think most med Continue reading >>

    I was told that alcohol actually retards the productivity of Metformin. It says right on my med bottle, do not drink alcohol while taking this medication.
    With any alcohol it will at first drop you down, but then you'll probably spike really high. If possible, I would avoid the drinking. Why take the chance. Just my opinion

    I think as long as you have snacks and don't drink on an empty stomach you should be OK. Some alcohol lowers your bgs and combined with Metformin the worry would be going too low.
    Make sure you have a meal beforehand and try not to overdo the alcohol. I asked my nurse before i went on holiday last year and that was her advice. Moe
