    How Can I manipulate the negative effects of alcohol in ketosis?


    I realize that alcohol is bad no matter how I try and lower the effects, however, realistically I have to try and balance these things as I have events to attend that I need to be social in social situations and will require some alcoholic indulgences to do so (bachelor party). That being said, I would like to find the right supplements required to block the metabolism involved with alcohol turning into sugar in my body. Would blocking the cortisol production in my body do this? What else would one suggest I do to prepare my body to stay in the highest state of ketosis possible in this scenario before or after? I need to know at what point would I have to take the cortisol blocker/(add other potentially positive supplement/s here) to reverse the effects, assuming a side of resveratol (msp?) would also be important.

    This is realizing the obvious: No sugar added substances, mixers in drinks, beer.. .etc.

    Who has the "concoction" I need? The remedy... if you will. I have done much research and cant seem to find this exact info so this will help many people going forward. I really want to get in shape (for P90x) but have to also be the life of the party as I am the best man with alcoholic best friends

    Thanks!!!

    Just have your diet 100% on point all the time, train your ass off... Then have fun and get drunk every once in a while. you wont trash your progress with a couple nights of partying a month. Just don't get hammered and slam down like 6 whataburger taquitos and a milkshake.

    haha, yes, I am trying to find some magic here in these forums. I want my cake and eat it too. I know this sounds "pie in the sky" but I need to know if there's a way to at least mitigate the negative effects and stay in ketosis. I know that alcohol is burned first, technically rather than "turned into sugar" but it also triggers cortisol creation in the body, wouldn't a good Cortisol blocker and/or something similar work to counteract this trigger?

    A cortisol inhibitor won't prevent alcohol from kicking you out of ketosis, and alcohol doesn't directly convert to sugar. It is catalyzed to acetaldehyde then acetate, which can be metabolized or fed into gluconeogenesis.

    However, anecdotally not everyone is kicked out of ketosis by drinking, so it's something you'll have to experiment with. Since alcohol is insulinogenic, it can actually cause a decrease in blood sugar levels, but this presumes you're imbibing sugar-free/carb-free drinks.

    Martin Berkhan wrote an excellent article on it - google it. Essentially, as long as your carbs are kept low throughout the day you're drinking, you should be fine. Just don't overdo it.
