Avoiding Restaurant Sabotage…

Eating out can be dangerous to your plan, if you don’t prepare yourself in advance.

A few suggestions:

  • Check out the menu in advance, look for healthy options
  • Don’t go to the restaurant hungry, snack on some fruits and veggies ahead of time, so you aren’t tempted to overeat
  • Drink lots of water
  • Avoid alcohol, those calories are burned first and you may be less vigilant after a few drinks
  • When you feel full, have your plate taken away, don’t be tempted to eat because there is food in front of you.

I have posted links to several articles with additional suggestions:
