Best thing to eat at mcdonald’s on keto

Keto McDonald’s Guide

McDonald’s is a worldwide drive-through eatery chain that can be very pleasing for those on the Keto diet. In light of the plenitude of areas, I calculated that a guide for picking low carb alternatives would be useful to numerous individuals.

Generally, I’ve had great encounters eating Keto at McDonald’s. At the point when you request a sandwich without a bun, they for the most part set it up for you in a plastic compartment. Some of the time, they even incorporate enormous bits of leaf lettuce, which is marvelous! It goes about as an extraordinary trade for the bun.

One thing I like about McDonald’s is that most locations have breakfast all day (in the U.S., at least). While it’s generally specially made and takes somewhat more, it’s exceptionally helpful to have the option to fly through the drive-through for breakfast — whenever of day.

Much like the strategies I use for eating Keto at Wendy’s, you’ll need to adhere to these fundamentals:

  • Stay away from the overwhelming carbs: french fries, buns, wraps, bagels, bread rolls, and so on.
  • Settle on shrewd topping decisions.
  • Be careful about the without sugar frosted espresso and dressings — the names may propose they’re low carb alternatives, however they’re really stacked with starches.
  • Unfortunately, McDonald’s no longer offers the Pico Guacamole Chicken Sandwich. It was incredible with barbecued chicken and no bun!

Condiments & Toppings

Be wary of the sweet sauces. I tend to stick with mayo and mustard.

  • Mayonnaise
    (100 calories, 10g fat, 0g carbs, 0g protein)
  • Mustard
    (5 calories, 0g fat, 0g carbs, 0g protein)

Sides & Salads

If you plan on getting a side, salad is likely going to be your best option.

    (110 calories, 5g fat, 15g carbs, 1g fiber, 1g protein) 14g carbs

Salad Dressings

I find that the salad dressing options at McDonald’s are limited and disappointing. Instead of dressing, I often opt for the dipping sauces instead. One packet of ranch is only 1g of carbs compared to 10g for a packet of dressing!

  • Low Fat Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing
    (35 calories, 2g fat, 4g carbs, 0g protein)
  • Low Fat Italian dressing
    (50 calories, 1.5g fat, 8g carbs, 1g fiber, 0g protein) 7g net

  • Creamy Southwest dressing
    (110 calories, 7g fat, 12g carbs, 1g fiber, 1g protein) 11g carbs

Dipping Sauces

Do yourself a favor and mix the Spicy Buffalo Sauce and Creamy Ranch as your salad dressing. You’re welcome.

  • Spicy Buffalo Sauce
    (30 calories, 3g fat, 1g carbs, 0g protein)
  • Creamy Ranch Sauce
    (110 calories, 12g fat, 1g carbs, 0g protein)
  • Signature Sauce

  • Tangy Barbeque Sauce
    (45 calories, 0g fat, 11g carbs, 0g protein)

Drinks

Don’t be fooled by the name. The sugar free coffees actually have quite a few grams of carbs.

  • Iced coffee, small sugar free vanilla
    (80 calories, 5g fat, 8g carbs, 2g protein)
  • Iced coffee, medium sugar free vanilla
    (90 calories, 5g fat, 11g carbs, 2g protein)
