1. Ask for it your way!
Don’t be afraid to ask for a customized order. After all, you are the one consuming the food! For instance, if an item is fried, see if it can be grilled instead. If your order comes with fries, ask for a side of veggies instead. Very often the restaurant will cooperate with you requests.
2. Ask to “triple the vegetables, please.”
Sometimes a restaurant will provide a side of vegetables where the portion seems more like a garnish. When ordering, ask for three or four times the normal serving of veggies, and offer to pay extra. It’ll be well worth it and your body will thank you later!
3. Order from the “healthy, light, low fat” entrées.
Most restaurants will list the calorie amount and nutritional content of those particular foods and some chains even list nutritional information for their entire menu!
