The ultimate keto alcohol guide
Alcohol on a Low Carb Diet!
Ah, alcohol, the ultimate frenemy- one minute you’re having a great time and the next, you find yourself awake in a strange place with no recollection of the night before. Ok, maybe that’s a worst case scenario, but it’s possible! Most people consider the worst effect of alcohol to be that dreaded hangover. Besides that, there’s nothing wrong with kicking back, relaxing or letting off steam dancing at a bar or club.
Alcohol gets a bad rep, and is certainly one of the most abused substances in the world. Some people can’t get enough of it and it can become a very serious problems when it interferes with your personal/social life and well-being. To enjoy it (or anything, for that matter) we need to exercise moderation and self-control.
If you like having a couple of beers, shots or glasses of wine to relax or have a good time on weekends, you’re in good shape! But throw a low carb diet into the mix, and you may find yourself struggling with the quantity of alcohol you’re drinking. You may find your tolerance lowered, or even nonexistent. You may also find your favorite Malibu Bay Breeze containing more than 30g of carbs in 10 oz. on your no-no list. What to do? Give up alcohol forever? Not a chance! If you love something, find a way work with it! Click link to read more.
Ketogenic Diet Low Carb Cheat Sheet
When people are new to the ketogenic diet, they often wonder what type of foods they should and could eat while making the changes they need to make. While I do have a food list for people on keto, it doesn’t cover everything and definitely doesn’t cover recipes or common foods people are always asking for.
Use the list below to get an idea of what replacements you can use on the ketogenic diet and what type of foods you could replicate while going the low-carb route. Not only does this make the diet or way of eating viable for long term use, but it makes it feasible for enjoyment, too! click the link below to read more
Below you will see a list of mostly “whole foods” that are keto friendly. Individual ratio and calorie levels will determine the quantities of foods allowed in a meal. Some people are more sensitive than others and will not be able to tolerate foods that are more processed. This is not a complete list of foods that can be used, as well as some foods may not be appropriate for everyone!
Prior to starting a ketogenic diet, use this list to notate food preferences. By providing your dietitian a clear picture of what your child’s likes and dislikes are will be very helpful in creating initial meals. If you have already started a ketogenic diet, use this list to expand your current diet. Find a vegetable or fruit that you have not tried and ask to, or create a new meal using that ingredient. Any diet, ketogenic or not, will benefit from including a wide variety of foods, especially fresh produce. Always consult your dietitian before trying a new ingredient!
The “keto Pantry” section of this site will soon be expanded to include benefits and uses of these ingredients on the ketogenic diet! Click the link below to read more.
Egg Fast Diet Menu Plan (Low Carb & Keto) and FAQs
If you’re interested in trying the Egg Fast Diet and want more details about what it is, how it works, etc., you can check out my post about it here. Basically on an egg fast you are consuming eggs, butter (or other pure and healthy fat like olive oil or coconut oil), and cheese, with a few exceptions for low carb condiments like hot sauce, mustard, etc. The egg fast ratio is to eat 1 Tbsp fat for each egg consumed and up to 1 oz cheese for each egg consumed.
