Low Carb Keto Happy Hour
I’m not a big drinker at all, but I do love to indulge in a beer or a glass of wine with dinner or out with friends. But indulging and diet don’t really seem to go together usually. On a low carb keto diet you can absolutely enjoy wine, beer & mixed drinks as long as they are low in carbs and fit in your macros.

Also, even though alcohol can fit into your diet, don’t go crazy with it. Speaking from experience too much alcohol can lead to the drunken (no diet) munchies or a hangover greasy fast food extravaganza.

I would also wait until you are in ketosis to drink as well. For more info on ketosis and macros, check out my guide here.
