OH CHEESECAKE FACTORY- a heaven where a devil lives. Even though I knew their one huge slice of cheesecake would sums up my entire calorie intake for a day, I could not stop irresistible urge to indulge the delicious bites after bites.
What is the calorie of a slice of cheesecake? There’s a good reason why the nutrition facts are only available upon request- and you can’t find those information on their website either. That’s because- they don’t want you to know how many calories and carbs you are taking unknowingly.
There’s a good chance finding yourself consuming around 5000cal after the lovely night out with your friends and family.
Don’t Worry! Let’s plan this through together- so that you can keep your Ketosis level AND have fun going out.
But there’s couple rules to keep:
1, If you go out to eat to Cheesecake Factory, skip a meal.
Even if you choose to eat lower carb dish, your calorie consumption will be WAY more than what is suggested.
What you could do is to either go brunch time (skip breakfast), or late BIG lunch (skipping dinner) and have small snack if you must.
2, Keep track of your carb count.
Unless you are ‘cheating’ often, consuming carb more than 20g here and there would not make you go off Ketosis.
However, not counting your carb intake can cost you- even if you pick “lower-carb” food at cheesecake factory, you might go way over the daily carb count if you already had some fruits in the morning. Or, you might end up eating big salad to control the calorie intake for the day- but remember, some of the vegetables can have high carb count. In order to avoid “ops” moments, ALWAYS COUNT YOUR CARB INTAKE.
Ok, by keeping those rules, have fun planning what to eat!
