How to Dine Out Low Carb

(& What foods to swap at a restaurant!)

When embarking on a new way of eating, meals at restaurants can feel intimidating. You may feel uncertain of what to order to stay on track and aren’t sure how to modify your day if you decide to enjoy yourself. Today I am going to walk you through how to modify any restaurant menu to fit your low carb lifestyle, and how to bounce back after indulging!

Low carb menu items

You can find low carb options at almost any restaurant. All you need is a good baked or grilled protein option and non-starchy vegetables. Below are some popular menu items that fit the bill that don’t even require modifications:
  • Omelet with veggies
  • Steak and eggs
  • Seafood salad
  • Chicken avocado salad
  • Tuna salad
  • Sashimi
  • Grilled or baked fish/poultry/beef with vegetable sides
  • Baked wings
  • Chicken or steak fajitas

Low carb modifications

Restaurants may not always have an already low carb option on the menu or maybe nothing that sounds tasty to you. That’s okay, with these tips below you can modify any meal to make it low carb!
  • Ask for the sandwich or wrap without the bread or tortilla
  • Order the burger wrapped in lettuce instead of on a bun
  • Swap one of the starchy side dishes for an extra vegetable from the sides menu
  • Ask for a side of bacon instead of the side of toast or oatmeal
  • Get the salad without the croutons or wontons
  • Swap the french fries for carrot sticks
  • Enjoy your fajitas with extra fajita vegetables instead of rice and beans

Strategies when indulging

Sometimes you might find yourself just wanting to indulge in the real thing and that’s okay too. Just be sure to modify the remainder of your day and have your Keto Weight Loss Sticks handy to support staying in ketosis. Here are some strategies for how to modify your day if you choose to indulge:
  • Save all of your carbs for your indulgence, keep your other meals very minimal in carbohydrates
  • Extend your fast the next day by 2-3 hours
  • Add in a workout or long walk the next morning to help put you back into ketosis quicker
  • Consume one of our packets of Weight Loss Sticks before and after your indulgence to support ketone production

Being on a low carb diet doesn’t mean that you can’t eat out on occasion! With the swaps listed above, you can enjoy time with your family and friends at restaurants while also supporting your low carb lifestyle goals.
