The Item To Get At In-N-Out If You're On The Keto Diet

The keto diet has skyrocketed in popularity in recent years as a healthy way to burn fat quickly. The diet limits carbs and increases fat intake so ketosis works its magic and directs the body's metabolism to efficiently use fats for energy (via Healthline). You've probably also heard a few keto myths floating around about this diet at some point as more people determine if it's something that will work for them. There's a long list of dietary restrictions and guidelines for the keto diet, so heading to In-N-Out for a drippy, juicy burger might not be on the menu — or so you thought.

In-N-Out is very inclusive and accommodating when it comes to its customers who request a keto-friendly meal. The California-based fast food chain makes good use of its secret menu to allow fans to build their perfect burger, adding or subtracting ingredients to modify their meal according to their individual needs or tastes. Sure, you can remove most of the toppings and opt to wrap your burger in lettuce instead of a bun, but there's another option on the secret menu that still lets you enjoy a savory flavor profile while adhering to the keto diet.

Order In-N-Out's Flying Dutchman if you're doing keto

The fact that you can enjoy your favorite dairy products while on keto is just a beautiful thing. Cheese on everything, please. At In-N-Out there are various options for crafting the best burger, but have you ever thought to use the meat patties themselves to replace the buns that hold it all together? If not, you'll need to try the Flying Dutchman on In-N-Out's secret menu. The menu item consists of two hamburger patties with cheese between them (via Hack the Menu). You can add whole grilled onions or other toppings if you're looking to add a zesty kick to your burger or make it animal style with other low-carb veggies.

Ordering the Flying Dutchman is possible at all In-N-Out locations and provides keto dieters with tasty options to fill up on the good stuff while also helping your body maintain ketosis. With a name like that, it only makes sense for the Flying Dutchman to serve up legendary amounts of meat and melty cheese like it does.
