Sticking to a low carb diet when eating fast food can seem impossible. There are a few tricks that can be implemented to minimize damage to your diet. Some of these are wrapping your burger in lettuce instead of a bun, having a sub prepared in a container, having chipotle in a bowl, or getting grilled chicken at KFC.
- Submarine sandwiches are very high in carbs. A typical sub has at least 50 grams of carbs
- Fried chicken isn’t a healthy choice. For starters, the chicken absorbs a lot of oil during frying.
- Coffee and tea are carb-free beverages.
“A bun-less burger wrapped in lettuce is a standard low-carb, fast-food meal. It’s high in protein, essentially carb-free and available at all fast-food burger establishments.”
