Fast Food on Keto

If you have not heard of the ketogenic diet, or keto, it is a low carb, high fat diet that helps with rapid weight loss. One of the downsides of it is that it is very challenging to maintain when you are on the road or not able to get to your kitchen for several hours. It is difficult to grab a chicken salad or some chicken wings when you are at your son’s baseball game. Let’s go over some option for keto snacks while you are on the go.

The first step is if you are going to commit to the ketogenic diet you must prepare yourself. If you know you are going to be busy all day make sure to pack some snacks. Some cheese sticks or almonds make for a great option to hold you over for a couple hours before you get somewhere you can have an entire meal.

Another thing to consider is coffee. While coffee is not food, it is an excellent appetite suppressant. Even better if you are able to add some grass fed butter and some heavy whipping cream to your coffee this turns it into bulletproof coffee. This has from 300 to 600 calories in, depending on how much you add and it can have the staying power of a meal.

One option that many people make the mistake of ruling out is fast food. There are many great fast food keto options. From bunless burgers to salads, there are some great options. For instance, you can go to McDonald’s and get three or four McDoubles for a very reasonable price. Simply throw away the bun and there you go. That is a keto friendly meal that will allow you to go several hours before you need anything else to eat. Check out this website for more info on keto fast food.

There are snacks you can get in a gas station or convenience store to hold you over. Grab a small bag of almonds or peanuts. You will be good to go for a couple hours if you do that.

Now that you have some great snack options, you have no excuse as to why you can’t stay in a state of ketosis while you are having a busy day.
