Asian food…pretty tough to get low carb food here if you just look directly at the menu. But with a few adjustments, you can get some food that is satisfying.

My wife loves to order orange peel beef, but with several modifications. Ask for the beef to be unbreaded, and tossed with a light amount of sauce.

Next, ask for steamed veggies instead of rice. They accommodate you quite easily and it tastes great! You can do that with several dishes their, but try to avoid ones that are breaded or deep fried!

Fast Food: In-N-Out Burger & Mooyah Burgers and Fries

Ok, this may seem like a no brainer for some, but this is the beginning of this blog, and I have decided to start simple.

I would like to clarify my stance before I continue. I believe that carbohydrates should be kept ¬†below 30 per day if possible, and if they must be eaten, they should be restricted to the later half of the day. I don’t worry about saturated fat or cholesterol. If you do, you should probably go back to the 80’s. I feel the real danger is gluten chronically high insulin levels.

I prefer grass-fed beef, but it’s pretty hard to get it at a restaurant. Probably easier to just supplement with omega 3’s. Anyways….

At In-N-Out burger you can order whatever size burger you want: Hamburger, Cheeseburger, Double Double, 3×3, 4×4, etc. But the key is to order it “Protein Style”.Image

The burger comes wrapped in leaf lettuce and it quite good! Skip the fries and get more meat!

At Mooyah Burgers & Fries, they have the same option, but it’s called an “IceBurger”.

Both restaurants are now available to my wife and me, and really make getting a quick bite to eat easy!
