You can always order a lean steak. I ask many questions to find out exactly how something is prepared. I usually look for some kind of grilled protein. If it has a sauce, I ask for no sauce. If it comes prepared with butter, I ask if it can be prepared with a little olive oil instead. If there's chicken or fish on the menu, I know that most of the time they'll be more than accommodating to make it how you want it. I always carry my own dressing and order salads without cheese, croutons or dressing. Vegetables I'll order steamed, no butter. If the vegetable has carrots, I'll ask for them to leave the carrots out. Another key to eating out is to look up the menu online beforehand if possible. Then you can get an idea of what to order before you go and can ask for modifications if needed.
Thanks, this is really helpful!

Hooray for you!!! I swear, our stories are so similar. Our height and starting weight are similar, I to have tried every kind of diet, exercise like a crazy person, I even have hypothyroidism! Getting older and harder to lose. Ideal protein is the only thing that has worked for me and I to have a great clinic with wonderful coaches.

I am half way to my goal (50 lbs lost in 16 weeks) and reading your post has allowed me to look into the future and keep me motivated!
