Stay Lean While Dining Out | Keep Your Social Life

In this episode, I talk to you about how to dine out while staying lean.  I share with you my best tips for how to make smart, healthy, beneficial decisions when dinning at a restaurant.

Topics Discussed:

  • Caloric difference between eating at home and eating at a restaurant.
  • Decide in advance where you’re going to eat.  Check online for reviews and the menu to see if healthy options are available.
  • The types of restaurants that tend to be the unhealthiest.
  •  Items you should avoid on the menu.
  • Avoid anything that says crispy or smothered.  These are red flags.
  • Ask the server if the chef is open to preparing your entrée without butter or extra oil.
  • Don’t go to dinner starving.  If you need to, have a piece of fruit before you leave the house.  This will help you make healthier decisions when it’s time to order.
  • Watch your cocktail intake.  Alcohol lowers inhibitions and can set you up for ordering disaster.
