Here is a summary of my Weight Watchers meeting on May 4, 2010.
As we all know Dining Out does not have to be avoided, we just need the tools to make our experience successful!
We all have those tools-Proper Planning is key to making any dining out experience a complete success!
By using your e-tools, your pocket guide, your dining out companion or several other tools you can go into any eating establishment ready to take control.
Use some of these tips to aid in your success-Go in with a PLAN, Ask for meals to be prepared YOUR WAY, Don't go hungry, Start your meal off with FILLING FOODS, Order from the KIDS MENU, SHARE your meal with a loved one or friend, USE page 49 of your pocket guide so you know what lingo to watch out for, TRACK TRACK TRACK!
Just because you didn't count it doesn't mean it doesn't count!
If you have nothing to write it down on pull out that cell phone and snap a picture when your meal arrives...TRACK when you return home.
I have been receiving What Not To Eat from an email and will share a couple of them with you!
Worst Nachos-On The Border Stacked Border Nachos
2,740 Calories/166 g Fat/191 g Carbs/5,280 mg sodium
The only way you should ever consider eating these is if you are rolling with a crew of eight!
Turn Away: You won't find a decent option on the appetizer menu. Instead, turn to the Chicken Tacos on the entree menu, at 250 calories a pop, they make as good a start to your meal as you can hope for.
Worst Starter-Chili's Awesome Blossom
2,710 Calories/203 g Fat/194 g Carbs/6,360 mg sodium
Hard to believe that a single onion can wreak so much nutritional havoc, but batter and fry anything and serve it with rich dipping sauce and you’re bound to do some damage.
Start Properly: Take a detour to the "Sides" menu and try Garlic & Lime Grilled Shrimp. 4 Shrimp will only cost you 160 Calories!
Worst Dessert-Chili's Chocolate Chip Paradise Pie with Vanilla Ice Cream
1,600 Calories/78 g Fat/215 g Carbs
Would you eat a Big Mac for desert? How about three Big Macs? That's the calorie equivalent of this decadent dish!
Positive Support is essential for you and your journey...Next week be in your meeting to see how SUPPORT can maximize your SUCCESS!
