Choose wisely when eating out. If possible look at the restaurant’s menu ahead of time. Don’t be afraid to ask for food prepared “your way.” If you would like shrimp cocktail as your entrée, grilled chicken in place of fried, or a side of steamed veggies instead of fries, ask. Be sure to ask about the sugar content of unfamiliar sauces or dishes.
Hit the road and have a great time. By taking care of yourself and resisting the urge to overindulge, you’ll return healthy, refreshed and ready to jump back into your healthy routine.
