Top Ten Tips And Tricks For Eating Keto In The Fast Lane!
(I’m great with the catchy titles eh?)
So, I was talking to a friend of mine who has been trying the keto diet, she likes it, she gets it, and she wants to be dedicated to it! Unfortunately she has an affinity to fast food places. If I’m honest (because you know how much I hate lying, I would normally tell her to cut out fast food places all in all because, well, they are not good for you and your weight management.
BUT also, it is extremely hard to keep yourself on track when you are constantly exposed to high fat, high carb, high salt food, even if you know all the tips and tricks to avoiding the more carb options. The more you see that high carb item, see it being eaten, smell it being made, whatever the case may be, your brain will come up with an excuse for you to have it.
So, just for you who is dedicated to your fast food eating, because you are so nice in reading all the words above, I have made a list of what you can do and what you can eat that fit in with the diet and your lifestyle regarding fast food joints.
A fun fact about Arby’s is that their food tastes delicious and if you ask nicely they will put the meat and cheese and toppings in a container for you, without the bun!
Luckily for those people who have trouble asking for specific changes to their order because of anxiety, McDonalds has these order machines that have an option where you can change the composition of the order! You can take buns off! Things such as sausage patties, egg patties, bacon, cheese, the chicken patties, mayonnaise, mustard, honestly it is just the bun and the ketchup that is the problem….and the fries…..and the ice cream.
This might be a shocker, but I have never actually been to Wendy’s. PLEASE PUT DOWN THE PITCHFORKS! Wendy’s is basically like McDonalds, there are burgers, salads, maybe breakfast options. Get rid of the croutons, salad dressing, buns and condiments!
5. Dairy Queen!
Now, unfortunately all the low carb stuff at Dairy Queen was the stuff you don’t really go to Dairy Queen for such as; burgers, salads, and stuff as such. There were no low carb ice cream options I could find.
So, subway is great for making salads and stuff, and please don't turn your noses up! I know that ordering salads suck, but subway has such a large selection of meat and cheeses that you could basically make a T-Rex ‘salad’. All I would warn you against is the sauces. Take the sub but leave the bread.
7. Tim Horton’s
This one doesn't have an exclamation mark beside it because I used to work there. Anywhoodles! Now I don’t know about this one because when I worked there any audit or specific change would be met with hellfire. I once typed in an order to skip the cheese on a bagel and they told me to take a break because “I was getting too overwhelmed and I needed to think about how I was going to say ‘no’.” WELL JOKES ON THEM BECAUSE I QUIT HAHAHAHA. But if you are totally dedicated to Tim Horton’s, I would recommend ordering a salad with no sauce. Everything they have and make is loaded with carbs. (Maybe not their coffee, or I don’t know, does dirt have carbs?)
8. Star Bucks!
Star Bucks is great because I don’t think they even serve food? Other than the normal cookies and brownies and stuff that we all know to stay away from, I don’t think they serve sandwiches or anything. But they are famous for their drinks so, coffee, coffee with cream, coffee with whipping cream, all the tea, I hear the chai tea with whipping cream is yummy!
9. Taco Bell!
Gross! Everything but the wrap and the taco bowl is ok.
10. Booster Juice!
You Guys will have to fill me in, I think you could get a smoothie made of kale but, I mean, why?
