Week 12


GOAL | Eat out the Way

  1. Hit Subway for lunch, ordering a veggie or turkey sub. Or go to any of the restaurants click here and order something that gets less than 25 percent of its calories from fat.
  2. Ask for extra rice—brown, if possible— with your Chinese takeout. Mix it into the dish, then put half of the dish in the fridge for another day. 
  3. Have the waiter put half of your meal in a doggie bag before it’s even served.
  4. Practice your assertiveness. Ifa dish comes with a cream sauce, ask for a tomato sauce instead. If it comes with french fries, ask to substitute a salad or a side of steamed vegetables. Find out if the dish comes with butter on top, and ask to have it omitted. 
  5. Ask for dressings on the side.
  6. Request olive oil instead of butter for your bread. 
  7. Ask the waiter to take away the tortilla

Tip | Any menu description that uses the words “creamy,” “breaded,” “crisp,” or “stuffed” is likely a dish loaded with fat.
