Dieting While Eating Out (Part 2)

Eating at the mall can be difficult, if you find yourself in this situation you can look to save calories by eating these dishes.

Chinese Food:

  • Steamed rice
  • Mixed vegetables
  • Hot and sour soup
  • Avoid deep fried entrees

Italian Food:

  • Tomato based sauces
  • Vegetable soups
  • Caesar salad (dressing on the side)

Food to Avoid:

  • Any cream sauces
  • Cream soups
  • Large pizza slices

Eating in Mexican Restaurants and Buffets:

  • Get sour cream on side
  • Guacamole on side
  • Substitute salsa for above
  • Request soft tacos over hard shell
  • Avoid or limit nachos especially with cheese

Eating at Buffet

  • Steamed and baked vegetable dishes
  • Spinach and green salads (Watch the dressing)
  • Baked potatoes
  • Baked chicken and fish
  • Rice pilaf

Eating on the road can be particularly challenging. Stopping at a grocery store to purchase a salad can be an easy option as many now have salad bars. I have had patients do well taking a small cooler with snacks in it on the road. The other thing that I use when traveling is the Metagenics UltraMeal Bar. These bars have a great flavor and make a nice meal replacement. I also travel with them on the plane and use them as my only snack while flying.

If you have any other suggestions please let me know.
