One important thing to remember when eating a keto diet is alcohol contains a lot of calories. One shot of vodka or 1.5 oz is about 97 calories however they are still zero carbs. If you are tracking your calories then you need to count the calories found in the alcohol.  There are very little calories in the diet cranberry juice so remember: the more you add the more calories and carbs will be in your drink.

Alcohol and your Keto

When you drink  a Keto Cranberry Moscow Mule or other alcoholic drinks your body sees it as toxic. Your body will break the alcohol down immediately and stop burning fat until the alcohol has cleared your system.

It is for that treason why alcohol will not kick you out of ketosis but put your ketosis on pause . When you drink alcohol, your body is going to start breaking it down immediately because your body sees it as toxic.

Another important thing to remember when drinking alcohol on a keto diet is how you are now a lightweight. Remember when you have not consumed a lot of sugar in the day it will take a lot less alcohol to get you drunk or buzzed. 

Financially this is amazing but beware of accidentally making an ass out of yourself at the company Christmas party.

After the Christmas Party…

When you are eating keto diet and you drink a Keto Cranberry Moscow Mule you need to follow up with water.
In other words, you will get a hangover that will rival the one you got after your 21st birthday if you don’t. Trust me on the water, it is your best friend.

Undoubtedly there is nothing like water to cure a hangover however a Turmeric Latte the morning after is a great choice. The reason being that Turmeric aids in faster removal of toxins.

I have found that if I take a Turmeric supplement before I go to sleep the hangover is pretty much non existent. Remember Keto Cranberry Moscow Mules are delicious and they still are are alcohol, its toxic. For more on Turmeric for hangovers check this out.
