KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 19 ― Finding a place to eat while you are on a diet can be a challenge, more so if you are on a ketogenic diet.

These require a high-fat intake, with the almost complete elimination of sugar and carbohydrates -- two very important elements in most Malaysian meals.

However, this does not mean that you cannot simultaneously be on a keto diet and still enjoy a tasty bite.

Here are some keto-friendly spots to check out:

1) Three Little Pigs & The Big Bad Wolf, Bangsar

Calculating your macros is a difficult thing whenever eating out, but over here their keto menu guarantees no more than eight grams of carbohydrates per serving.

You have quite a selection to choose from too, ranging from Roast Pork Fried Rice to a classic American Keto Breakfast.

Keto-friendly desserts are available as well.

2) Thirty Seconds, Bandar Sri Damansara

If you are planning to go on a “keto-date”, this is the spot for you.

Do order their low-carb cheesecake... it's so good.
