Has anyone had weight loss success while drinking white claws as long as you stay under 20 carbs?
Do you understand that ethanol stops ketosis and metabolism of everything else until the ethanol has been metabolized completely?
Then there’s this:
I’ve lost 90lbs over three years and have not quit drinking. I wasn’t drinking white claws. But I don’t think that matters since they’re low carb and I’ve been religiously low carb the entire time - no cheat days.
I would say though, that my greatest rates of weight loss happened when I abstained. And I got better sleep.
By the way, White Claw has a zero carb option on offer now. I think it’s called ‘Pure’. I guess just vodka and soda water.
@jbchurchill Aside from my first year on keto, I’m not a total abstainer either. I have noticed, though, that more than an ‘occasional’ alchoholic beverage not only stops ketosis, but buggers my digestion the following days as well. By occasional I mean the equivalent of a can/bottle of beer once or twice a month. There are other non-abstainers on the forum and I’m sure we all have individual experiences and reactions to ethanol metabolism. The past couple of months I’ve been developing a zero carb beer and drinking a lot more than I have the previous 3 years on keto. I’m spacing out the consumption to keep the digestive effects minimal and eating less per day to maintain my weight.
