Tips for Eating Out While Losing Weight

Yes, you can eat out while losing weight. But it's all about making the right choices. Long gone are the days of McD french fries and the extra large pop. We know those things won't get you to your goals. I'm going to share with you my tips for eating out!

1. Skip the pre-meal starch. Plain and simple. You don't need the bread and butter sitting on the table or the loaded nachos before your meal. I you think these will tempt you too much, ask the server to hold the bread. Trust me, she will not be offended with you, nor are the first person to ask.

2. Order veggies, salad or fruit for your side. These options are always available and a much better alternative to the french fries of buttered potato you meal comes with. Remember to check with the dressing too. Try to stick with oil and vinegar types.

3. Choose grilled or steamed--- not fried. Fried foods, especially ones that are breaded tend to be low in nutrients and high in calories.

4. Ask for sauces and dressings on the side. Nothing will sabotage your week worth of workouts  then an added 400 calories in dressings, sauces and butter. It's super easy for them to hold, if asked in advance.

5. Use portion control. Just because you bought it, doesn't mean you have to finish it all in one sitting. I like to make 2 meals out of it! Ask for a doggy bag at the end and pack it up for lunch tomorrow.

6. Don't plan to make up for it later. Don't plan to indulge with the promise of working it off later. You can't out exercise a bad diet.

7. Be forgiving with yourself. We all like a little treat once in a while or a cheat meal. Take it if you need it, and move on after. It's okay once in a while, just don't make it a regular occurrence.

So there you go! My easy tips for eating out and while losing weight.
