Grapefruit Diet Food List when Dining Out

steamWhen dining out, you may find out that many otherwise low fat foods are prepared in the high-calorie way. Therefore, you have to be careful when ordering food. Otherwise, the food will sabotage your weight loss efforts

Here are some hints to differentiate between low fat and high fat food.


Low Fat Buzzwords:

  • Steamed
  • Broiled
  • Garden-fresh
  • Roasted
  • Grilled
  • Stir-fried
  • Poached
  • Cooked in its own juice
  • Cooked in tomato sauce

High Fat Buzzwords:

  • Fried
  • Crispy
  • Cream Sauce
  • Au Gratin
  • Gravy
  • Cheese sauce
  • Scampi
  • Breaded
  • Alfredo sauce

The example below shows that by substituting the high-calorie food with the low-calorie food, you can significantly reduce the fat calories in a meal.

High-calorie meal

  • deep-fried mushrooms
  • a ten ounce steak
  • large baked potato with sour cream
  • buttered peas and cheesecake
  • contains about 2,000 calories

Low-calorie meal

  • salad with dressing
  • broiled skinless chicken breast
  • plain baked potato
  • steamed vegetables and angel food cake
  • contains about 800 calories

Therefore, when dining out:

  • Leave off the butter and sour cream, use seasonings or soy sauce
  • Avoid stuffed vegetables with breading
  • Avoid fish with breaded, fried, or swimming in sauce
  • Choose salad with dressing instead of deep-fried food as side dishes
  • Skinless chicken breast is better than steak
