Eating at a fast food restaurant while on a low-carb diet is no doubt a daunting task. In fact, if you’re trying to lose weight, it’s always preferable that you prepare your own meals at home, where you can choose your ingredients wisely. Even so, if time and money are a concern, or you’ve just been invited to go out with some friends to your local fast food chain, there’s still of hope for you. Here are 7 of the best low-carb dishes from some of the most popular restaurants around. Enjoy!
1. Starbucks: Iced coffee with soy milk or half and half
If you want to start your day with a daily dose of caffeine but no carbs, this is the way to go. Coffee can also help to speed up your metabolism – bonus!
Does black coffee have too strong a flavor for you? No problem. You can always add some unsweetened soy milk. It will give your beverage a milder taste and it’s almost carb-free. On the other hand, if you’d rather have some cream with your coffee, you can ask for half and half (half cream, half milk). Carbs for this option are still quite low and it will save you almost 30 calories per tablespoon when compared to full cream.
