Fit Tip: Eat Smart

Monday Morning Fit Tip:


You’re exercising and eating healthy, trying to make good decisions.  Then all of the sudden you’re holding a menu with all sorts of tempting treats!  How can you enjoy a meal out while still working towards your goals?  Try these tips:

  1. Get creative!  Combine side dishes and appetizers to make a healthy meal for yourself.
  2. Share!  One of the hardest parts of eating at a restaurant is the large portions.  Ask a friend to share or ask the waiter to put 1/2 of your meal into a to-go box before bringing your food to the table.  Plus you’ll have a free, delicious lunch for tomorrow!
  3. Soup is “souper” filling!  Choose one with a vegetable-based broth filled with veggies, beans and grains (not a dairy-based, creamy soup).
  4. Just say “No!”  Ask the waiter not to bring the free peanuts, breads, or tortilla chips & salsa.  Once they’re on the table only a saint could abstain!
