    This category is for discussing low carb options for Alcohol as well as science specific to alcohol metabolism by a fat adapted human.
    Good place to start. I'm on my phone else I'd elaborate more. My understanding is that zero carb alcoholic drinks are fine, if you're willing to put ketosis on pause while your body cleans out the alcohol from your blood.

    Like I said, that's my understanding.

    I used to do this and then moved to whiskey on the rocks, then to whiskey straight, then to no booze for various reasons since June 2016.
    Booze was a double edged sword for me. Good times, but I had a tendency to really eat a ton during and after. Diet cola also seems to produce an insulin response in me so I have been off that as well.
    Some people can have booze and be aok, others, like me, are hit or miss. Try it out and see what works for you! You probably already know this but take it slow on the booze, your tolerance will be way down.
    Good Luck!

    Edit:grammar and spelling are hard.
