Yes, Very very bad not just because of weight loss but because its dangerous to drink alcohol whilst in ketosis. xxx

DO NOT DRINK ALCOHOL IF YOU ARE KETOTIC!
Alcohol is a powerful inhibitor of gluconeogenesis. In fact, it forces part of the gluconeogenic metabolic process into reverse. This means that if all the glucose in the blood is being derived from gluconeogenesis then the consumption of alcohol will inevitably cause the blood glucose level to fall. Worse still, the alcohol also stops ketone body production, thus leaving the brain entirely without fuel.
A person who is ketotic is 100% reliant on gluconeogenesis to maintain adequate levels of glucose in the blood. If, under these circumstances alcohol is taken, the person will become disorientated and might lose consciousness, not just from the alcohol, but from low blood sugar. Needless to say, this could be very dangerous, and even fatal.
Alcohol does not have these effects if the glycogen stores in the liver are normal. Under these circumstances the blood glucose level in the blood is maintained by the breakdown of liver glycogen, a process that is not influenced by alcohol. If a person becomes confused under these circumstances it is due simply to the pharmacological effects of the alcohol.

You'll probably delay ketosis if you drink alcohol though, and just make it all so much harder on yourself :(

I dont want to drink to be completely honest. Its just i know what my mates are like and iv got 2 nights out planned on friday and saturday and one friend has already said tonight...."you need a few drinks to have fun and that shake diet sounds rubbish and dangerous." Like i said i dont want to drink, im happy to have water all night but thought i might have to have 1 or 2 just to keep them quiet and off my back.

Su ! if you love me then answer my bunny dance thread!! its bombed not one reply :) xxx

I just done my bunny dance...that means i love you daisy.

Also @ pizzle....To your friend that said "that shake diet sounds rubbish and dangerous." Explain how rubbish and dangerous it would be if had alcohol just to keep them happy. I am sure they will have a great laugh spending the night at your bedside in hospital.

Sounds dramatic...but it really is that dangerous.

I don't want to drink so this is NOT a cheaterey question, just something that's always confused me!

I'm just confused that's all, not looking for a way around it :)
