A common New Year’s resolution is to start dieting and exercising. BurgerFi is here to help you. Well, with the first part.

It was recently reported on a local news station that the top diet question Googled in 2018 was, “What is the Keto Diet?”

To answer that, the Keto Diet is a low-carb, high-fat diet. According to Healthline.com, it “involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake and replacing it with fat.”

Starting this month, BurgerFi is offering the KetoFi — a protein-packed burger, featuring two all-natural angus beef patties, topped with bacon, a fried egg, drizzled with mustard and served green style (wrapped in fresh, crisp lettuce) — cutting out the carbs of a bun, and adding in some extra fat.

“The trend of the Keto Diet influenced BurgerFi because we want to maintain our mission to be a place where every guest who walks through our doors, will not only find an item on our menu they can eat, but also one they can enjoy and return for over and over,” said BurgerFi franchisee Esmeralda Godoy Araque (location: The Crosslands, Kissimmee). “Our goal at BurgerFi is to serve food with the best quality ingredients to all of our guests across the country, which means being able to cater to a variety of different dietary needs.”

Say the Keto Diet isn’t for you. BurgerFi has plenty of other resolution-friendly options to offer.

· The Beyond Burger: A plant-based burger that looks, cooks and satisfies like traditional beef. Featuring a Beyond Burger Patty, topped with pickles, onions, lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise, mustard, ketchup and American cheese. You can also enjoy it vegan style without mayonnaise and cheese.

· Grilled Chicken Sandwich: A free-range, all-natural chicken breast, topped with lettuce, tomato and drizzled with a honey mustard BBQ sauce.

· Green Style Burgers: Drop the bun and go green, enjoy any burger wrapped in fresh, crisp lettuce.
