Eating Out on a Low Carb Diet

If you are eating out, make sure to look for a restaurant that serves low carb foods. The following will help you make sure you’re still on the right track even eating out at a restaurant.

  • 1. Find plain and unbreaded meat with vegetables and/or salads without croutons. Ask for extra vegetables in pace of the potato or fries.
  • 2. “Meal Salads” are getting more sought-after, and can be very delicious. If you don’t like the choices, pick a sandwich that looks good, but ask for the “innards” to be put on top of a green salad.
  • 3. Order the burger, steak sandwich, etc, without the bun. Have a salad on the side.
  • 4. If it’s a “breakfast all day” type of place, order an omelet for lunch or dinner, with low carb veggies such as spinach, peppers, mushrooms, etc. Have fruit on the side.
