Liquor Is The Best Low Carb Alcohol Choice:

Many types of liquor do not have any counted carbs at all. Now of course if you are adding sugar, soda, fruit juice, or anything else sweet, then you are adding carbs. Diet Soda should be your number one choice. My favorite is Diet Sun Drop! The liquor alcohol carb counts given have had the fiber removed. All amounts here are for a 1oz shot.

Armagnac – 0g

Bourbon – 0g

Brandy – 0g

Cognac – 0g

Gin – 0g

Rum – 0g

Scotch – 0g

Tequila – 0g

Vodka – 0g

Whiskey – 0g

Wine Is Your Second Low-Carb Alcohol Choice:

How many carbs are in wine? Most wines have between 2g – 5g carbs per 4oz serving. If you pour a BIG glass, then you’ll have more carbs. The sweeter the wine is the higher the carb count will be.

Conclusion

You should remember that alcohol is still a fuel. Alcohol still adds empty calories to your diet which is not good! If you drink more than 1-2 drinks a day, it will have a serious impact on your health, your ability to lose weight, and your ability to gain muscle. Liquor is your best choise for low carb diet alcohol drinking with wine and light beer coming in close behind.
