Do you feel like it’s impossible to eat out and still stick to your diet? I know many of my clients do. (And remember when I say DIET, I don’t mean some crazy, fad diet. I’m just referring to the way you eat.)
I’m going to share a simple trick with you for staying on track while eating out. Because after all, who doesn’t like to eat out? Especially during the summer!
In your mind, divide your plate in half. Order a meal where half of your plate is fruit or vegetables. Then imagine a quarter of your plate. Order meat or protein that will fill a quarter of your plate. Last, imagine the 4th quarter of your plate and order a starch (bread, tortilla, pasta, rice, potato, etc.) that will fill the remaining quarter of your plate.
Obviously, most restaurant meals will not naturally fit this plate. Just do your best to tweak your meal into this plate idea by sharing a meal or taking some home for the next day.
