Eating Out Right
Temptations abound when you eat out. There are bread baskets, and chip baskets, and appetizers, and desserts. In order to maintain your healthy diet you’ll have to have a plan in place before arriving at the restaurant.
Here’s how you stay on track while eating out:
- Don’t eat extras: Ask for the bread basket or chip basket to be removed from your table and stick to eating only what you ordered.
- Don’t drink calories: Stick with water or unsweetened ice tea in order to avoid a few hundred extra calories.
- Get it plain: Ask for sauces and dressings on the side to cut down calories.
- Get healthier sides: Just because the grilled fish comes with a side of potatoes doesn’t mean you have to get it that way. Ask for a side of steamed veggies instead.
