Make a pick & mix menu of standby snacks and always choose something to have in your bag when you're out. Research online menus for restaurants and coffee shops for nutritional information. Read labels on take away salads or sandwiches. Build a list of safe choices so that you can stay in control.
Taking home-prepared food is not always possible, but dangers lurk in take away salads and sandwiches that aren't always as obvious as those in burgers and fries.
When going out for the evening meal I research the restuarants website and seek out the nutritional info on the menu offerings. I choose what I will order before leaving and stay on track. I don't even want to see the menu and all the temptations.43
Planning is key to any weight loss plan. Weather it is going on line to research a menu before you go out to eat, or simply making your healthy meals on Sunday for the week ahead. I do this all the time and it keeps me on track for the week. When I get home for work if I have to try to figure out what I am going to make for dinner the chances of me making something quick and easy instead of healthy are much greater. By having it ready to heat I stay on my plan much more often!
