While there may be some obvious financial benefits to having a lower tolerance for alcohol, you should actually be very careful when taking the keto diet. So, while the best way to avoid getting too drunk is to limit your alcohol intake or avoid drinking it completely, if you must drink, here are some ways to keep you from going overboard. Make sure you do not drink on an empty stomach, says Seattle-based registered dietitian Ginger Hultin, MS, RDN, CSO. "Ceto or not, there is evidence that, when alcohol is consumed with a meal, blood concentrations of alcohol may not reach a quarter of those reached on an empty stomach," she says. Make a meal that includes lots of low-carbohydrate fruits and vegetables, such as a keto cliché with eggs and peppers.
