Eating Out

In any restaurant:

• Ask for salad dressing, gravy, or sauce on the side and use sparingly.

• Choose main dishes that are broiled, baked, roasted, or grilled, instead of deep-fried or pan-fried.

• Don’t be afraid to make special requests, such as asking that something be cooked with less fat.

When ordering a sandwich:

• Add lettuce and tomato.

• Ask for whole-wheat or rye bread.

• Choose mustard instead of mayonnaise.

At Chinese restaurants:

• Have brown rice instead white rice.

• Order a side dish of steamed broccoli.

At fast food places:

• Order smaller burgers. Skip the cheese and bacon.

• Order a grilled chicken sandwich.

• Order garden or grilled chicken salads with low-fat dressings.

• Choose water or low-fat milk instead of regular soda.

At pizza places:

• Ask for vegetable toppings, such as mushrooms or peppers, rather than meat toppings.

• Get whole-wheat crust.

• Request half the cheese.

• Eat a salad with low-fat dressing in place of a slice of pizza.
