We often hit road blocks when beginning a healthy eating plan.   One of them is the many situations that can sabotage us.  Don’t let them!

How to avoid sabotaging yourself when eating out:

  • Keep attention on the conversation versus the food
  • Try to plan ahead what you are going to order (go on-line to see if there is a menu available)
  • Be the first person to put in your order.  It is more tempting to change after hearing what others are ordering.
  • Order water (You will probably order another beverage but have water too.  Make sure not to order another beverage until you have had your water.)
  • Pass the bread basket.
  • Just say, “No, thank you.” Do not add an explanation. Often when you tell others you are eating healthy they may inadvertently try to sabotage you.
