The most appealing part of the ketogenic diet, as many of us know, is that it requires us to eat fats. And just as we need to avoid some foods while being on a diet, the keto diet also requires you to avoid some drinks. So here are some drinks that you shouldn’t have while on the keto diet.
Warning: Make sure to consult a doctor before starting any diet.
Quick Important Note:

Basically…you don’t need to diet to lose weight and can STILL go to McDonald’s.
Normally we would assume that while being on a diet, one of the best things for us to drink would be fresh juices. However, it’s not such a good idea on the ketogenic diet. Juices made from oranges, apples, and pineapple are packed with natural sugars.
Even though you’ve seen drinks such as Gatorade and vitamin water as good drinks, these drinks are loaded with sugar and I’m sure you’ve figured it out by now that sugar is one of your worst enemies on the keto diet.
Being a milk lover, this one personally broke my heart, but the lactose in the milk contains carbohydrates (12 grams per cup). And if you’re only allowed some small portions of carbohydrates in the day, do you want to use them up on a half a cup of milk? Non-dairy milks such as almond milk are a great substitute for this.
We all love our morning coffee, yes we do. But you need to take a step back if your coffee is coming from your favorite nearby cafe. And this cafe probably douses your coffee in sugars and cream. So make sure your coffee or tea is Keto-friendly.
As interesting as it might seem to be on the ketogenic diet, it is not suitable for diabetic patients since it might hurt certain parts of their bodies. So always consult a doctor before you start a diet because you never know how your body is going to react to significant dietary changes.
However, if you’ve already done this, then feel free to go ahead and try it out! And let us know how it goes.
