The keto diet is a great way to lose weight fast. It involves eating low carbohydrates and high fat. One drawback to the diet is you need to be prepared. If you take off for the day and don’t take any food or snacks with you, it can be very difficult to find keto food on the go.
Believe it or not, there are some awesome keto options to be had at fast food restaurants. Sure, this isn’t something you should be doing on a regular basis, but you can use fast food to get you out of a jam when you need something low carb to eat.
Fast food salads
Yep, fast food salads are a thing. Obviously these aren’t the best salads, but they are a low carb meal, usually. The reason it’s just usually is because you need to exercise caution when eating fast food salads. Some of them have hidden carbs with strange ingredients. Be sure to read labels and make sure the items are keto-friendly.
Many people think of burgers and immediately rule them out. The great thing is all you need to do is toss the bun and then you have an incredible low carb option. The same can be said when it comes to biscuits, muffins or any other bread item that is keeping you from being keto-friendly.
Download the app
A low carb dieter’s best friend is the app for the fast food chain they are currently visiting. Why? Because it allows the person to look at every single item on the menu. While exploring the mobile app for the different fast food chains, it allows the person to find options they may otherwise not know they exist. Also it allows you to have to make the awkward keto orders face to face. You don’t have to say “no bun” and “no ketchup.” Just simply choose everything you want to order and submit it. Then you just pull up to the drive-thru window or walk up to the counter and tell them your order numbers. They hand you a bag and you are good to go. How amazing is that?
Grab a coffee
Coffee is a great appetite suppressant. If someone is unable to get to a meal they simply need something that will hold them off for a couple hours before their next meal. For many people, a cup of coffee can do this. Just get a cup of coffee with some cream (not too much) and that will hold you over until you are able to get home and prepare your next meal.
As stated earlier, keto on fast food is not something that you want to do on a daily basis, but it is an option for people who have few other options. Explore the menu and find something that is low carb enough to get you by. Be sure to look at the nutritional information either on the mobile app or on the restaurant’s website.
