Eating subway while on the keto diet

Keto Diet is one of the most followed weight loss diets, with millions joining the bandwagon each year, to bring about a positive and healthier change to their health and weight. Keto diet (or Ketogenic Diet) is a diet which comprises of consuming a protein and fat-rich diet while substantially cutting down on the carbs. The concept of the diet is to reduce the availability of carbs for energy consumption such that the fat reserves are used up for energy, thereby reducing the body fat levels.

Converting fat into energy, requires more calories than that for converting carbohydrates to energy. Hence, people taking up the Keto Diet burn more calories thereby leading to increased weight loss in the first 3-6 months as compared to other weight loss diets.

Since it involves more consumption of fats and proteins, it makes one feel more satiated as compared to carbs-rich diet, leading to decreased consumption of food in general.

Being on a Keto diet also means you give up on processed and fast foods. But, if you’re one of those people who cannot survive without having SubWay once in a while but also want to take up a Keto diet and find yourself in crossroads having to choose between weight loss and your favourite meal, fret not for there’s a way you could do both without having to compromise on either!

In this article we’ll show you how you can Keto your way through the Subs!

It is a rule of thumb in Keto diets to avoid bread and most carbs as much as possible. Hence, the Subway chopped salads are God-sent and a safe haven for those on a Keto Diet.

Sybway also posts the calories, nutrients percentage and other details on their website, which makes it easier for you to keep a tab on how many calories you’re taking and making sure you don’t exceed your normal intake when on the diet.
