Keto McDonalds: An In-Depth Guide:

Keto McDonalds


In this article, we’ll show you the best keto McDonalds options from their menu to ensure you’re abiding by your keto diet.

We realize maintaining your ketogenic diet can be difficult when eating out, especially at a place as carb-heavy as McDonald’s, so we hope this guide makes it easy for you.

These items will be split up into breakfast, lunch, and dinner, so you’ll know exactly what to order depending on the time of day.

Without further ado, let’s get started.

Breakfast Options:

Sausage Egg Mcmuffin w/Egg (No Muffin)

  • Macros: 3 g net carbs, 26 g fat, 15 g protein

As with any item on the menu when trying to eat keto, AVOID THE BUNS, MUFFINS, AND BISCUITS. With this item, simply eliminating the bun gives you a great keto option. High fat and protein with hardly any carbs is exactly what we want.

Sausage Egg Mcmuffin (Lose the Muffin!)


Egg White Delight Mcmuffin (No Muffin)

  • Macros: 2 g net carbs, 10 g fat, 18 g protein

Same rule applies here. As long as you lose the muffin, staying in ketosis will be a breeze.

Steak Egg and Cheese Biscuit (No Biscuit)

  • Macros: 3 g net carbs, 18 g fat, 20 g protein

Nothing says keto like steak and eggs. This item will also be one of the more filling breakfast options McDonalds has to offer, which makes for a great keto Mcdonalds breakfast!


Bacon Egg and Cheese Biscuit (No Biscuit)

  • Macros: 3g net carbs, 15g fat, 14 g protein

Any time there’s bacon involved, you know you’ve got a great opportunity to indulge in some keto McDonalds. This item provides a great trio of macros to stay in ketosis.

Lunch and Dinner Options

Big Mac (No Bun)

  • Macros: 6 g net carbs, 26 g fat, 18 g protein

Everyone is very familiar with this McDonald’s staple. But in this version of it, we must remember, NO BUN. We also recommend limiting the portion size of this item to one bun-less big mac as it’s a little higher in the calorie department (330).

Double Quarter Pounder W/Cheese (No Bun, No Ketchup)

  • Macros: 5 g net carbs, 42 g fat, 45 g protein

Yet another McDonald’s classic. This item provides a very high fat and protein content while keeping the carbs at bay.

Artisan Grilled Chicken Sandwich (No Bun)

  • Macros: 2 g net carbs, 4 g fat, 29 g protein

For those of  you looking for a keto McDonalds item that’s on the lighter side, this is it. This sandwich provides minimal carbs and very high protein. The only downside is that it has a low fat content (unless you order it with bacon and mayo), but it’s an overall clean choice.

Bacon McDouble (Plain, No Bun)

  • Macros: 3 g net carbs, 21 g fat, 23 g protein

Last but not least on this list, we have the bacon McDouble. This has low-carb written all over it. Feel free to get two if you’re really hungry, since the carb count is minimal.


That completes our list of the best keto-friendly breakfast, lunch and dinner options to make things easier on yourself when eating at McDonalds.
