I eat out often, mostly for lunch, which is a little easier. This week I had breakfast for lunch..two eggs and one toast, instead of a high fat lunch menu. Sometimes I have a BLT, without mayo, easier to track than a healthier sounding tuna or egg salad. My purpose for eating out is to's really not for the food!

My advice is to pre portion food to take with you like nuts, high fiber bars, some apples or a banana.
I've found the calorie's contained in my fav restaurants on line, so I can know what has the least calories before I every leave the house.
Busy lifestyles can make it difficult. A little planning can help.
Sattva's idea is a great one, consider going the the grocery store for lunch.
Best of luck to you. emoticon

I think life is not so much about waiting for the storms to be over, as much as it is, learning how to dance in the rain.

Last night hubby wanted to do fast food after the ball game. I didn't eat anything at the game....hooray!!! We did eat a whooper meal because hubby had a coupon. I got mine without mayo and had ice water instead of a soft drink....that's a miracle for me too! Yesterday was a good day for me!

I try to get food in the supermarket rather than eating out. This works!

I'm new to posting so hope I am doing this correctly. I find it really difficult to control calorie intake when I'm away from home and eating on the run. I try to make good choices but often find they aren't the best. For example the other afternoon I got a fruit smoothie which I made the assumption was just fruit. I checked the calorie content when I got home and it was very high! If anyone has tips about 'eating out and on the run' sure would like to hear them.
