  • Ketosis Questions

    I have a friend that has advocated ketosis for a long time, and he has sold me on trying it out.

    So I am on day 4 today, all's well. Only drinking water and milk sucks pretty bad but I am getting used to it.

    anyway- June 9th is my first annual Valhalliday Barbarian Barbecue, and I want to get drunk.

    What can I drink in what amount without totally derailing myself?

For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."

    why are you only drinking water and milk and can i ask how much milk?
    straight liquor such as scotch, rye, vodka, and gin would be the best choices as long as the mixer contains no sugar.

      What else could I drink...? Everything else is made out of sugar.

        How much milk though? I dunno- not much I think? A gallon in a week.

        Also coconut milk- I make my protein shakes with equal parts milk, coconut milk, and water and stretch it so that the volume is like 3x the usual- its the only time of day that I am drinking anything that has any flavor to it, so I try and stretch it.

            Oh crap... I didn't even think to check the milk nutrition info.

            It's 2% though if that changes things.

            But you're saying that I can get drunk? Because it won't be a barbaric barbarian barbecue if I just get high.

                Do what you want. It's your hangover.

                If you're truly concerned about the nutritional info in alcoholic beverages that you might consume then plug some of them into a website and find out.

                  if your going to do it every night it'll be a problem but as a one of it wont be dreadful. if you're in ketosis by the 9th then the carbs from the spirits will get burned immediately by the body and you'll return to ketosis when they are gone. drink them neat or soda water or with low cal mixers if you must have something else I dunno about hangovers though :

                    Thank you again- awesome news.

                    God damn it sucks about the milk though. Haha now I'm down to only water. The hardest part is not drinking sweet things, the carbo food is not such a loss.

                      you can put lemon or lime peel in water, cold green tea with lemon peel is nice chilled in the fridge as well as warm. if you try green tea, don't make it with hot boiling water add cold water to brink the temp down before adding the tea- that way its not bitter.
                      the lack of flavour in drinks is a bitch but the weight does drop off.
                      i add loads of ice to water.

                        Yeah I am adapting to water all the time. I definitely feel better in the morning when I wake up, whatever long and mystical scientific chain of relations is causing that.

                        Thanks for the tea suggestions also- I have it sitting in my cabinet and will give it a go today when I get back from this umpire gig. (all water til then )

                              Mr. Perfidy, sir, I don't know how you come up with all that random stuff, but I truly hope you never get banned.

                              Oh, and BTW milk contains lactose , a naturally occuring sugar. Not that there is anything wrong with sugar.
