Fred’s 12th Week on Ketovore: Eating Out

Aug 25, 2023 | His Journey

In week 12 on the ketovore diet, school is starting which means lots of school board functions and meetings in restaurants.  One of the challenges many people face while following the ketovore diet is maintaining their dietary restrictions when dining out. Eating out can often tempt us with high-carb options, making it difficult to stay on track. But fear not! With some strategic planning and smart choices, you can enjoy dining out while staying in ketosis. Below are five friendly tips for staying ketovore eating out without compromising your diet.

1. Research the Menu in Advance

Before heading to a restaurant, take a few minutes to research the menu online. Many restaurants now provide their menus on their websites, making it easier to plan your ketovore meal. Look for dishes that are zero or low carbohydrates and high in healthy fats and proteins. Avoid items with keywords like “breaded,” “fried,” or “sweet,” as these are typically high in carbs.

2. Opt for Salads with Protein

Salads are a great keto-friendly option when dining out. Choose salads with plenty of leafy greens, non-starchy vegetables, and a source of protein like grilled chicken, salmon, or steak. Ask for dressing on the side to control the amount you use, and opt for oil-based dressings like olive oil or vinaigrettes instead of sugary, high-carb options.

3. Skip the Breadbasket

When you sit down at a restaurant, you’re often greeted with a basket of bread or chips. Politely decline these offerings to avoid unnecessary carb consumption. If your dining companions insist on having them, ask the server to bring you a plate of olives, cheese, or a small dish of olive oil and balsamic vinegar for dipping instead.

4. Customize Your Order

Don’t be afraid to customize your order to make it ketovore-friendly. Most restaurants are willing to accommodate dietary preferences. For example, you can request a burger without the bun or ask for a substitution of vegetables instead of rice or potatoes as a side dish. Customizing your order allows you to enjoy your meal while staying on track with your keto goals.

5. Be Cautious with Sauces and Dressings

Many sauces and dressings can be sneaky sources of hidden sugars and carbs. Be sure to ask the server about the ingredients in sauces and dressings, and request them on the side whenever possible. This way, you can control the amount you use or skip them altogether if they don’t align with your keto diet.

Ketovore Eating Out – Conclusion

Eating out on a ketovore diet doesn’t have to be a daunting task. With some research, planning, and smart choices, you can enjoy a delicious meal while staying true to your dietary goals. Remember to be mindful of your choices, customize your order, and prioritize whole, unprocessed foods. By following these tips, you can navigate restaurant menus with confidence and continue to reap the benefits of the ketogenic lifestyle. So go ahead, dine out, and savor the flavors of keto-friendly dishes while staying on track towards your health and fitness goals.
