I often treat myself to a meal out on the weekend, sometimes even two. I look forward to the break from the kitchen. Usually I plan where I'm going and look up the menu and nutrition information ahead of time. I go one step further and enter it into my tracker as well. If the portion is huge I divide it before I begin to eat. Portion size, calories and a lot of fat are certainly an issue in most restaurants, but the thing that really concerns me is the sodium content. I often ask for my grilled meats to be prepared with no seasoning and sauces on the side. I also plan for extra walking opportunities on the weekend, like shopping, or the park. All in all I don't see the weekend days as different from any other days. It's all about making the right choices, every meal, every minute, every day.
