Quick tips for eating out!

I've heard so many people say that they just throw in the towel when they go out to eat because there's "nothing healthy on the menu." Eating out does NOT have to be detrimental to your fat loss goals!

Don't be afraid to customize your order anywhere you go! I guarantee you won't be the first or last person to put in a request.

Here's a few tips for eating healthier anywhere:

1. Ask for sauces on the side so that you can use them minimally if at all
2. Go bun-less (order lettuce wraps)
3. Hold the bread basket
4. Drink water or iced tea instead of soda
5. Get a side salad instead of fries
6. Share your meal with someone
7. Drink at least one glass of water before your meal comes
8. Limit alcohol or skip it completely
9. Ask for brown rice or cucumber wrapped sushi rolls
10. Eat strategically by going for your veggies first, protein second and save the carbohydrate portion of your meal for last.

Are there any strategies you use when eating out to ensure that you don't go overboard?
