Healthy Weight Loss Tip #11

Making Healthy Choices When Dining Out: By paying attention to how a meal is prepared you will not only consume less calories but also leave satisfied and not overstuffed. In other words look for foods that are either braised, baked, grilled, broiled or poached as opposed to fried, breaded or crispy. Ask for all your sauces to be set on the side so you can decide how much you wish to consume.
