If possible, read the menu ahead of time and plan what you'll have. And then enjoy.

Check the calorie count for salads...Some salads are over 600 calories!

* Split the meal with someone else.
* Bring half of it home in a doggie bag.

Me, I use a cheat day. :D

I eat out a lot, 1/4 to 1/3 of the time is an honest guess. It’s work, but that doesn’t mean it’s not fun.

Skip the fast food if possible, it’s sodium laden and bland.

Mom and Pops, the odd balls, and certainly the upscale are my preferences.

There are novel ideas, creative servings, and amazing tastes that await all of us. Do not fear it, embrace it.

I carry a cooler religiously when on the road. That’s for water, electrolytes, and yes an apple. It works well for leftovers too.

Enjoy, just be mindful. Gains, for me, are sodium, 2-3 pound and temporary. That’s typically a drive through fast food sorta week. If that is the trend, I’ll market at a delicatessen to try and compensate.

There is no bad food, only bad cooks.

Choose wisely from the menu, and have fun with those you are dining with!

Mine for today is to eat an apple before you go into the reataurant

If you don't change, you will end up where you are headed.
