Guide to Eating in Restaurants
Ask how the dish is prepared -Grilled, steamed, and baked are the best options. Avoid anything that is deep fried or even pan fried (Most likely fried with oil and/or butter)
Ask for dressings on the side -This way you can control how much sauces, creams, butters, ext are being placed on your food. Get it on the side and if you see it's loaded with fats simply don't use it at all.
Watch your portion size -Often meals at restaurants are larger than normal meals that you'd eat (So don't eat it all). Ask for a container at the start and put half of it to go so that you're not tempted to eat it all.
Learn the Restaurant Wording -Avoid dishes with these words, "Crispy", "dipped", "gratin", "alfredo", "scalloped".
Pick Leaner Cuts of Meat - Chicken, Turkey, Flank Steak, filet mignon are all quality options
