For breakfast, we all struggle with getting up in time to make breakfast. Fast food restaurants are extremely convenient to get ready in time but also eating some breakfast. The problem is most breakfast options include hash browns, bagels, or biscuits which are all full of carbohydrates. You can get the chicken and cheese bagel with no bagel. It has 130 calories, 6 g carbohydrates, and 7 grams of fat. Another breakfast option is you can have eggs and sausage. Everyone loves a good American classic. The sausage has 190 calories, 18g fat, 0g carbs. The folded egg has 90 calories, 6g fat, and 0g carbs.
My personal favorite option at Chick-fil-A just so happens to be to work perfectly if you are on the keto diet. You get little chunks of crispy chicken. They come in many different sizes to ensure that you get exactly what you want. The options are the 4 pieces (130 calories, 6 grams fat, 5 grams carbs, and 14 grams protein), 6 pieces (190 calories, 9g rat, 7g carbs, 21g protein), 12 pieces (390 calories, 18g fat, 12 carbs, 41 protein.) Chick-fil-A also has a grilled chicken option which is fits your diet even better. Though grilled chicken has less protein, it has half the calories, one third the fat, one third the fat then their size equivalent of fried chicken. With chicken nuggets, it is incredibly easy to think you are being healthy but add too much sugar and fat to what you eating through condiments. If you limit yourself to just one packet, you should be fine but try to resist adding more.
If you are more of a chicken sandwich fan, you can have a chicken sandwich. They will be more than willing to give it you without the bun. The bun is full of carbohydrates and calories. The Classic Chick-fil-a Chicken Sandwich has 230 calories with 19 grams of fat, 10 grams of carbs, 11 grams of fat, and 23 grams of protein. These numbers do not include any condiments you put on.
Instead of buying a milkshake, satisfy your sweet tooth with a diet lemonade. Chick-fil-a uses real lemons instead of concentrate and Splenda instead of sugar. They have no fat and low carbohydrates. The sizes include small (50 calories, 0 fat, and 8 grams of carbohydrates), medium (50 calories, 0 grams of fat, and 14 grams of carbohydrates), and large (80 calories, 0 fat, and 21 carbohydrates.) If you are not a lemonade fan, you can always try the iced tea unsweetened (0 calories, 0 fat, and 0 carbohydrates.)
The major things to be cautious of when trying to stay on a keto diet at Chick-fil-a is condiments With chicken nuggets, it is incredibly easy to think you are being healthy but add too much sugar and fat to what you eating through condiments. If you limit yourself to just one packet, you should be fine but try to resist adding more.
While eating keto at Chick-fil-a is possible, one should always be cautious of a few areas that are easy to ignore. You can pick the grilled chicken with no bun and think you are doing super great, but without even thinking load it up with all sorts of condiments. No benefits of eating keto are going to last if you are eating all the extra sugar from sauces. Additionally, as keto is a low-carb diet, the most common carbohydrates at Chick-fil-a are buns, bagels, and biscuits but be careful. Several items on the menu do not have any of those and are full of carbs. I would recommend whether you choose something from the list above or not. I would pick what you are going to eat before you even get there. You are going to walk in, smell the fried chicken, see the big posters of milkshakes, and be very tempted to forget your diet if you do not come in prepared. You can do keto at Chick-fil-A just be aware of carbs and fats to be aware of.
