Keto fast food options

Keto fast food - following and sticking to a low-carb keto diet can be challenging when eating out.

This is especially true when dining at a fast food restaurant.  

This is because 99% of the items on the menu of fast food restaurants are high in carbs.

They are all about buns, tortillas, and English muffins that can instantly kick you out of ketosis. 

But fear not. You can still eat at many of America's most popular fast food restaurants like McDonald's.

The key is to forego the baked items, ketchup, fries, and sugary drinks. 

This ultimate keto fast food survival guide shows you just what you need to order to stay low-carb.

Here are 15 low-carb fast food options that are keto friendly.  

On a side note, not all have enough fats compared to protein to fully satisfy your fat macros. I suggest you keep fatty snacks in your bag, so you can pair that with your fast food meal as needed.
