Keto/LCHF Diet Bowl

I’ve found it very hard to order with my team and still be keto with the places we decide on. What are some common substitutions or adjustments y’all make when ordering?

I agree, it’s a struggle! Once trick for me is to eat before I go - grab an Atkins bar or some jerky or eat a large late lunch. Salads, chicken, steak and veggies, burger no bun, fajitas.... There’s usually something, but it can be challenging. Sushi this week was hard and I ended up just having sushi with rice. Got a good work out in the next day and are fewer carbs the following day. Pizza place is also brutal...

I have definitely done the Dave Asprey C8 /MCT on sushi as an out cycle carb up (I eat way less.) I try not to cheat with pizza (man it hurt) but I love it on my three cheat weeks a year. Olive oil, balsamic and basil on it, and always after a big salad ( so I just eat less of it.)

I’m gluten intolerant so it is easier to say that for keto ordering with my team. A white lie might be in order 😉

Sushi places - sashimi (just fish), edamame, green salad, maybe miso soup? Pizza places - super hard, but a lot of places have salads that you could get! Some have wraps (then dump it out and not eat the wrap) Thai: takes all of my resolve not to Ofer pad Thai. Lab gai is good, chicken dishes, fried eggs. Easy orders: steak with veg, grilled chicken, salmon (no miso glazed usually full of sugar), teriyaki bowls (no rice), charcuterie plates and veg sides,

Carry a small dropper bottle of Monkfruit Extract. 300 times sweeter than sugar, keto friendly, 0 glycemic index. You can sweeten beverages with it. I keep it on me so that i can order a vodka soda and add a little sweetness to it!

Tito’s and soda. Mineral water snobbery is key. Picking around the chicken/salmon Caesar crotons, like a boss. Veggies r us, with butter. Bunless burgers and the side. Meat and greens and done. When it fails, take least worst option, then take some extra K2 to smooth out the insulin excursion. Or pre eat some Keto snacks so that the total “least worst,” you are prefull to over indulge. Come dessert. Coffee and heavy cream.

Burger no bun. Steak with green sides. Salmon Caesar with spinach. Charcuterie tray. If they’re making it a point of having pizza, just say “catch you next time” and bow out. It’s fine to say no to pizza night, keto lifestyle or not.

Grilled wings/ baked wings. Perfect party “bring.” Some Whole Foods sells lemon pepper wings. I wait u til they go on sale, buy a bunch. Thaw and cook as our “party food.” “Bring a dish.”
