20 keto something

Incorporating a healthy keto diet into a busy young life

Fast-food on keto

When I travel for work I sometimes have to get some take-out food from fast food chains like McDonald’s. Ofcourse this isn’t the most ideal situation for a keto diet but sticking to eating your fats will keep you into ketosis.
Burgers without bread are a great option for getting your fats and proteins, ofcourse be aware that there are sometimes some sauces containing sugar, not ideal. Some basic rules you will need to keep in mind when eating at a fast-food chain and maintaining your diet:

– Order burgers without buns
– No chicken nuggets because the crispy outside layer is filled with carbs
– No ketchup, milkshakes, desserts (lots of sugar)
– Salads are okay without croutons and potatoes

Great options:
– Mc muffin
3g of net carbs, 11g of fat, and 12g of protein
– Salad without dressing
10g net carbs, 54g of fat, and 18g of protein. 
– Quarter pounder with cheese, without bun and no ketchup
3g net carbs, 25g of fat, and 25g of protein. 
– Double cheeseburger, no bun and no ketchup
3g net carbs, 20g of fat, and 20g of protein
– Big mac, no bun and no sauce
5g net carbs, 25g of fat, and 18g of protein. If you’re feeling crazy and your macros will allow it, the Big Mac sauce only adds one more net carb. 
– Bacon burger, no bun and no ketchup
4g net carbs, 21g of fat, and 23g of protein
