How to Eat Keto at a Restaurant


Going keto is as much about what you don’t eat as what you do. As you’ll see, PrimaForce can be an important tool to wage war against an environment of processed and high-carb foods.

Most restaurants are structured to feed our high-carbohydrate and sugar addiction. Think of them as sugar merchants. The fries are all carbohydrates, and get processed in the body like sugar. The burgers are paired with buns – and sauces – that are loaded with sugar. Then everything’s washed down with more sugar in the form of a soft drink.

As you rifle through the menu, envision your plate and remember 75:20:5. Seventy-five percent of your plate needs to be “fat.” So, while your fellow diners are ordering pasta, or maybe a “healthy salad,” you need to look for avocados, eggs (with the yolks), sausage, and butter. Yeah, you get to be the cool kid at the table. Since carbs will be front and center on your menu, you need to stay focused on fat and protein.

What to look for:

1) Meat: Steak (the fatty stuff like Prime Rib), Bacon, Hamburgers (no bun), Hot Dogs (no bun), Chicken, Duck, Pepperoni, Pork, Pork Rinds, Sausages, and Veal
2) Fish: Flounder, Grouper, Halibut, Oysters, Red Snapper, Salmon, Scallops, Shrimp, Tilapia, Trout, Tuna
3) Dairy (full fat!): Butter, Cottage Cheese, Heavy Cream, Cream Cheese, Eggs, and Sour Cream

If you can't find anything keto-friendly, PrimaForce KetoShakes are a great meal replacement option. Anchored with MCTs, it's a low-carb/high-fat shake that comes in Vanilla and Chocolate.
