Carl’s Jr & Hardee’s deserve props for providing carbohydrate conscious customers choice. Say the words “Low Carb It”, and they will wrap anything held inside bread with nice, fresh, delicious lettuce. Ordering a lettuce wrapped burger doesn’t mean they will cut out Ketchup (Catsup) containing HFCS so request a dry burger. Keep wet condiments out your burger until you’re certain your macros won’t suffer from the added sugar, corn syrup, and high fructose corn syrup.
While this might sound anal, if you’re on a ketogenic diet, then it’s in your best interest to keep those added ingredients out of your mouth. I’m trying to average approximately 30g-125g a day of net carbs, so I’ll let some wet condiments slide into my burger since I’m not trying to get to the 5% at this point in time, but some of you calorie counters might benefit from requesting dry lettuce wrapped burgers if you’re choosing a high fat, moderate protein, low carbohydrate lifestyle.
