Tips for Eating Out on Keto

Here are 5 tips for eating out while on Keto
You may be going out for the night with your friends one night while you are on Keto and wondering, "what can I eat while I'm out?" I have been there before and I know the correct items to order while you are out to make sure that you don't go over the limit of carbs that you are allowed to have each day. 

1. Do your research
Make sure that you heavily research the places that you go out to and the foods that you eat. This is essential because it is important to make sure that you are aware of how many carbs you are consuming on keto. Make sure that you are under 50 grams of carbs a day. Look at the menu and see the nutritional facts about how many carbs there are in the foods that you are eating. 

2. Stick to meat 
If you are at McDonald's or Carls Jr., eat a lettuce wrapped burger with no fries. If you are at Pizza Hut, get the wings instead of the pizza. Make sure that you are eating meat with no carbs in it. Avoid anything that has bread.

3. Order a Salad 
Salads are pretty safe for remaining in ketosis, that is if you are aware of the ingredients that are in the salad. Go back to tip one to make sure that you do research and find out what you are eating. But generally, Salads usually have lettuce, meat, dressing, cheese and many other things that are keto friendly. It is generally safe that salads will not take you out of ketosis. 

4. Avoid Sugar
As sweet as a strawberry shake or a slice of nice cheesecake may sound, say no to it. It may be tempting but you will feel a lot better without it. Willpower is key, remember that. Temptations to just splurge in ice cream, soda, pie, etc. will be there, but you need to tell that temptation in your head to shut up because you are on a journey to better yourself. 

5. Everything in Moderation
Don't eat out all the time, make it a special treat. The best things in life are enjoyed in moderation.
