    IF and single malt scotch

    Primal Fuel
    OK, not the most primal question, but....

    What is the effect of a glass of single malt scotch on an intermittent fast?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    Thanks,
    One Delta Ten Tango

    Well...it'll hit ya harder than when ya aren't IFing; other than that it has enough calories to be not negligible, but I wouldn't really stress about it.
    My whole life, I've felt like an animal......but I've ignored my instincts. I ignored what I really am. That will never happen again.

    my brother once had some scotch (amazing stuff...single malt tripled distilled) while fasting at my wedding. he passed out in my cousin's lap.

    so, yeah...drink up, but steer clear of any nearby cousins

    Thanks for rapid replies. I am travelling from Dallas to Alaska and often IF rather than sucumb to the airplane/airport offerings. Still, nice to have a little something to blunt the senses. I will ask anyone in my row if they are a cousin.

    If all goes as planned, and if the glass of scotch isn't considered a fatal bfeak in the IF, then this will be my first 24+ hour fast...ever, I think.

    Not a scotch drinker.....but on my nights off I drink Maker's Mark (bourbon) on the rocks. PB has definately made me a lightweight, IF would magnify that!


    Cheers

    You made me LOL. There are so many posts about coffee and cream breaking a fast, but I must say that scotch sounds like a much more exciting way to start the day.

    Shouldn't be a problem. Dry alcohol does not disturb ketosis.

    Well, usually I do a fast from dinner to lunch the following day. Right now I am in a breakfast to breakfast fast, so he scotch is at a respectable hour. The breakfast version would of course be Huevos con Cuervo (raw egg in a shot of tequila....oft referenced, never tried by me).

    I say have the scotch (and not just one glass either), and see if you still care
    having fun and not stressing is way more important then possibly breaking a fast, so enjoy it!
