|I NEED 24 TIPS OR 2 TIPS ON EATING OUT WITH A BAND?|
I am just completely clueless on what to order at a Restaurant.
Do you order healthy food and eat a nice size portion? Do you order what your in the mood for and eat a small portion?
I have to plan a whole lot when I know I'm going out to eat.
Monday, I took staff members to Maggiano's Italian Restaurant for a new hire orientation meet and greet. I researched the menu before going and bounced it up against nutrition (this took 15 minutes). Their dinner size salads are calorie ridden hidden little DEVILS! 1,440 calories in a Maggiano's Salad, 1,213 calories in The Maggiano's Spinich Salad and the list just kept on going...... as I searched frantically for a good choice. Wont even mention what the pasta dishes contained in a calorie content.
I ended up ordering a side size Spinich Salad w/o bacon 175 calories, a side order of Spaghetti Marinara 420 calories (2.5 Cups cooked pasta) w/ unsweetened Iced Tea.
I can only imagine entering this Restaurant un-prepared, what I may have ordered and then my day's calorie count would have been over the MOON.
What happens when a spare of the moment "restaurant situation" comes up? Looking for band friendly restaurants and/or band friendly menu options and/or your go to restarurant meal.
Totally convinced that Eating Out needs to be avoided at all costs while you are in "loosing mode"!
But, how do we survive "life", "work", "friends", "family", "birthdays", "anniversaries" any "obligations" that revolve around FOOD and still Lose Weight?
I am finding myself wanting to be a recloose, a hermit crab, not wanting to do anything with anyone for failure of sabatoging my entire week's effort with 1 meal.
