My girlfriend and I are planning to live in Germany, she is french and I am from South America. I know in fact she can have double nationality since her country is part of the EU, by the other hand I am not that lucky and I don't like the idea of having the citizenship of a foreign country and not having the right to keep my original citizenship.

Double citizenship is currently illegal in Germany. This means you have to either renounce your own citizenship or not take up the German citizenship. Unfortunately, there is no other solution/possibility.
However, I'm wondering why the German citizenship is so important to you anyway although you're not even living there yet. You can also live in Germany without possessing the German citizenship. You can just wait and get a permanent visa. Even IF you could become a German citizen, you would have to wait at least 8 years to be allowed to send an application. That's so far in the future that I don't think you should worry about anyway. There are much more urgent questions, such as: can you support yourself when you move to Germany (do you have a job offer?) and how will you get around? Will you study German? Etc.1
