    there is a sticky about alchol, it`s very dangerous to drink while in ketosis, if you want to drink you will have to spend a day eating normal food to build up carb stores.
    its up to you whether you think it`s worth it.
    personally i`m having the whole week off cd.
    good luck with it x

    just remember that if you come off cd it's a sod getting back on it!! so if you were thinking of not eating on christmas day then i would consider just not having the drink or two...

    just take a look at the link emmie.. when your body is still in ketosis.. which is WILL be.. after just chicken and veg.. then you can actually end up poorly.. but i guess its just whether you would like your chance it or not.. i sure as hell wouldnt..

    I know that this goes against popular belief, what with the Ketosis and alcohol theory, but I have continued to have one night per week drinking (usually wine, gin and/or sambucca) I have had no ill effect, expect for getting drunk a little quicker (due to the lack of food, I guess). I have lost 3 stone is just under three months. So don't beat yourself up for Xmas. Remember that a diet is for life not just for Xmas, lol. :)

    Also remember that it's not what we eat/drink between xmas and new year...it's what we eat/drink between new year and christmas that does all the damage. :)

    (having said that I seem to do quite a bit of damage between xmas and new year!)

    i drank one small glass of wine over the course of four hours recently. and i really had to go that slowly. if i had had it at my usual drinking speed i would have been a gonner. had two sips and i felt drunk!! and i promise i'm not exaggerating, even though it sounds ridiculous!!

    This is the above post that Kitteh so kindly put the link on this thread for and I think any of you who are drinking whilst on a vlcd should take it very seriously.



    Your health is your wealth at the end of the day.​

    I think the words here are 'caution' and being 'sensible', if you are going to have a drink you need to have carbs to get you out of ketosis. For every person who says they were ok there is going to be one who says they weren't..........and I know my luck....so if I do fancy a drink on christmas night then I know I am going to have to have carbs.
