  • Just avoid the sugar loaded tomato ketchup/sauce.

    If possible, replace the sauce with coconut chutney.

    If made at home, use VCO for frying.

  • OK. I avoid sauce , can I take this frequently, we friends go out for eatinh like KFC very frequently 4 times / week .. Is this safe to consume every time. What about sodium ?

  • We don't count sodium on LCHF diet.

  • I would consider this cheese stick/finger high in sodium (493 mg per serving) even though it doesn't oppose lchf diet but it is not good for general health especially with high blood pressure if you often eat them in regular basis or eat too many of them each time. They probably contain other food additives eg. flavor enhancers or preservatives. It would be better for you to make home-made cheese fingers as you can control the right amount of salt as well as avoiding any non-necessary additives. Choices of salad is also good alternative healthy snacks when eating outside.

  • what do you order at KFC ? seems like you are in USA .

  • instead -go to Wendy's or Zaxbys--order chicken salad - with more lettuce, spinach, olives and extra cheese - no dressing - or oil/vinegar dressing

    Also Chipotlees is good Mexican - order a bowl - without rice - with beans, chicken, cheese and -onions, salsal

    Not good. Loaded with carbs.

    Avoid.

  • Are you sure ? But above link shows less car b? I want opinion on KFC

  • BangaloreMate

    I can't opine on kfc but 12 g carbs is too much except you don't take any carby diet and stick to lchf principles. What kind of carb is there if not sugar ?

  • LCHF- allow up to 100 grams carb per day- cheese stick okay if eat only one or two for after noon snack - as long as daily total is less than 120 or 100 grams carb

    You must know what kind of carbs are used . Also what fats in it .

  • 95 % peopel --including me are NOT scientist and do not know enough about all types of fat or carbs.

    I saw yesterday in store - checking for Gouda cheese - and there were 25 or 40 types other cheese blocks for sale ...

    I usually check carbs gram only -on labels and serving size

  • champak045

    No need to be scientist. Just be attentive.

  • Avoid fat and oils in the diet (I mean fried food items). Ultimately it can cause block in the coronary arteries.

    😃😃😃. My dear sir. You are quoting ada ama aha recommendations. If you don't take fats you have to take carbs and proteins. Both in large quantity are not good.

    In fried items if good quality of fats like co vco ghee etc sfa are used they are not harmful but the items you fry eg flour refine flour, potato chips and all kind of junks are bad. Fat has earned bad name out of vested interest and connivance
