paramount theme park

Universal Studios, Disneyland, Walt Disney World and now…Paramount Pictures Park? It’s happening – in South Korea, at least. Paramount has just signed a deal to create a “studio-branded theme park” in a resort being developed in South Korea. Specifics of just what the Paramount theme park will contain are sketchy at best, but the studio has a wide range of entertainment to pick from – Mission: Impossible, Transformers, G.I. Joe, and many more. Personally, I’m hoping for Zodiac ride, where you obsessively comb over mountains of evidence to try to find the Zodiac Killer. That might be a long-shot, though.

For the past few months. I’ve been losing weight on the Ketogenic diet – I’m down 25 pounds and counting. For those of you who don’t know what the Keto diet is, it’s a high fat, extremely low carb diet that transforms your body into a fat eating machine. When you first start Keto, the prospect of finding Keto-friendly foods when eating out seems overwhelming. However, as you continue on the journey, you discover that it’s not very hard to find Keto options outside the home.

As a Disneyland annual passholder, I’ve agonized over my latest visits to the park, worried about the temptation to cheat and not sure what Keto options were offered. I have done some research on the subject, and while there are some helpful threads on Reddit and other message boards, I was unable to find a good resource for eating Keto at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. So I decided to make one.

Being on Keto at Disneyland isn’t easy, but with some planning it isn’t very hard. Here’s my complete guide to eating Keto at Disneyland.
