Staying honest on a diet is hard, especially when trying to balance it with work, family, and a social life. Keto is a great and effective diet, but it’s not possible to always prepare every meal from home. What if you're on the run and you need to grab a bite to eat from a nearby fast food restaurant? Not many places have options specifically for keto diets. Thankfully, with the rise in popularity of vegan and keto diets, even fast-food chains have begun to carry healthier options. With a few simple menu hacks, almost any food can become keto-friendly.


1. Things to Consider

Before eating out, there are several things that every person on a keto diet should consider:

  • Sauces and dressings often contain high levels of sugar which can turn even a healthy salad into a sugary mess. Tasting a drop of the sauce before adding it can help dieters know exactly how much to add.
  • Many restaurants offer add-ons such as croutons that often dramatically inflate a meal’s calorie and carb count. Having employees remove these add-ons can trim a meal down.
