When Eating Out

 Establish eating-out rules to reduce calories and fat:

 

  Limit the following foods:
  Fried foods, butter, desserts
  Meat toppings on pizza
  Cream sauces, cheese sauces, gravies, and salad dressings
  Beverages with sugar, such as soda, juice, and sweet tea
  Bread, crackers, Chinese noodles

 

  Substitute the following foods:
  Water or unsweet tea instead of juice or soft drinks
  Plain hamburgers instead of cheeseburgers & small vs large
  Cheese or veggie pizza instead meat pizza
  Clear salad dressing or vinegar/oil instead of creamy dressing
  Lean meats instead of high fat meats
  Baked potato or veggies instead of French fries

  Forgo the bread basket they bring you before your meal
  Don't top your salads with bacon bits, lots of cheese,     croutons, or other high fat toppings   
  Order pasta dishes with tomato sauce or non-creamy sauces
  Drink water or eat raw veggies to curb your appetite
  Ask for a to-go bag in the beginning and put 1/2 your meal in
  Order lots of vegetables and share a dessert if needing one
