You mentioned you had 3 restaurants where you feel confident, would you be open to sharing them? I am thinking any steakhouse would likely work, or any seafood place that will do grilled fish.
Again, thanks for your posts and all the info!
Congrats on Day 4! You are halfway+ through the hardest week.
I'm down over 40 pounds in 11 weeks, this way of eating is a miracle to me!
I don't have the hardship you do of traveling but found double-checking everything in a restaurant has saved me. Who knew most restaurants cover everything in butter/oil, etc for flavoring? I sure didn't, esp. veggies. But then again, I wasn't ordering a whole lot of veggies when I was out.
Please post to us all you need to, the first week to 10 days were the toughest but now it's been pretty much smooth-sailing. I'm so afraid to go off plan, knock myself out of ketosis or waste money/food so that helps me keep on plan. That and the scale "pays" me back each week.
