Calorie Saving Tips When Eating Out At Restaurants
When eating out at restaurants, you really need to watch out for calorie busters everywhere on the menu and in the kitchen. Restaurants are notorious for cooking virtually everything in butter. Butter has a higher smoke point than olive oil, its much cheaper and it makes the food taste so much better which means customers will be coming back for more. This is why cooks like to use butter on all of their dishes. Here are some calorie saving tips to help when you’re eating out:

  1. Ask for salad dressing on the side
  2. Ask for steamed veggies dry (with NO butter)
  3. Ask for grilled or broiled instead of fried
  4. Ask for all sauces on the side
