7 Ways to Weigh Your Food / Figure out your Calories When Eating Out

eating-out-while-dieting-1Recently, thanks to Obamacare,  restaurants with 20+ locations are required to list calorie content information for standard menu items on menus. Total calories, fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, sodium, total carbohydrates, sugars, fiber and total protein have to be made available in writing upon request.

Unfortunately, most restaurants and cafe’s don’t fall into the 20+ locations category, and as such it can be very difficult to accurately guess what’s in the food you’re consuming when eating out.

That doesn’t mean all hope is lost though. Here are my tips on how to get a good idea of the nutritional value of food not prepared by you. Keep in mind that all these things can be done in tandem to get the most accurate estimate:

 

Step 1. Order the Most Unprocessed Food

Processed foods have the most variation when it comes to calories. That’s because added ingredients meant to give food a distinctive taste (creamier, richer, sweeter, crispier) can really add to the bottom line of the nutritional content.

That doesn’t mean that a restaurant can’t totally wipe out the lower calorie value of whole foods like vegetables by pouring on sauce or oil. However, you have a better chance of asking your whole food to be prepared (or not prepared) a certain way to cut back on those calories, while you have no such option of pre-packaged foods the restaurant chooses to purchase – like bread.

So, when dining out look for the most unprocessed, whole – closest to its natural state – foods on the menu. Look out for the way it is prepared and avoid anything deep fried, fried, or breaded and go for grilled, baked, roasted, or boiled.

In case you’re wondering how ordering the most unprocessed food will let you know how many calories you’re consuming – be patient my friend, we’ll get to it in the later step.

The next thing you should do when ordering out is immediately upon getting your dish, divide your meal into two. If you are dealing with a solid type of food (like salmon or other white fish, it’s easy to cut and stack one piece on top of the other to visually make sure you have half).

It’s HERE – Bye Bye Thunder Thighs (The Diet for Pear Shapes)

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

finalcoverI’ve been a busy bee completing my latest 300 page book, “Bye Bye Thunder Thighs – The Weight Loss Diet Plan for Pear Shapes” (BUY HERE), but I’m proud to announce the wait is over!

In my first book, The Thigh Gap Hack – The Shortcut to Slimmer, Feminine Thighs Every Woman Secretly Desires, I focused on unconventional stubborn fat loss tactics, which most people had never heard of before, that work extremely well for women who want to know how to get a thigh gap.

I lightly touched on diet and exercise (otherwise the book would have been 500 pages long), but still got tons of requests from readers asking for more in depth diet information – like recipe requests, how many calories they should eat, how many grams of carbs, fats and proteins and when they should eat them to see the best fat loss results.

Of course, I would reply to these individuals – but each time was very time consuming. Naturally, I figured if some people were still not 100% clear on what to do it was time to go back to the drawing board and do some clarifying. So, I took all of the most frequently asked questions I received from The Thigh Gap Hack and poured everything I could into my latest work – making sure I left no stone uncovered.
