EAT AT YOUR FAVORITE RESTAURANTS AND LOSE WEIGHT
Weight losers on The DON'T DIET OR EXERCISE System are encouraged to eat anything they want, to include eating at your favorite restaurants.
When was the last time you were on a diet and were asked to meet friends at a restaurant for dinner? No more bowing-out, making excuses, or picking at a salad with a side of carrot sticks while your friends can't wait for you to leave so that they can make fun of you behind your back.
You can learn how to make smart decisions at your favorite restaurants and still achieve stellar weight loss results. In fact, when Shelley and I go out to dine with friends, following the meal, we are often congratulated by, "You ordered very smartly tonight," and, "You're an inspiration to me." Or, "I need to start ordering like that."
Restaurant menus are littered with meal selections that are swimming in sauces, gravies and toppings that are sure to undermine achieving your weight loss goals. So, it is important to take charge of your culinary lifestyle by first, learning how to determine which meals on the menu will not thwart your weight loss.
In fact, thanks to Don't-Diet-Or-Exercisers, restaurants are starting to offer healthy menu selections designed for those of us who may be watching our weight. We include some menu selections for you to use for inspiration from restaurants, like, Applebee's, Chili's, Denny's, Olive Garden, Red Lobster, Ruby Tuesday and TGI Fridays.
We support New York's decision to hold chain restaurants accountable for their meals by having them post their caloric information on their menu. We applaud King County, Washington (including Seattle - where Shelley and I occassioanlly dine) for recently adopting the menu-labeling requirements.
21 State and local governements are currently considering similar nutrition disclosures. We hope that other states and municipalities will follow suit. It is empowering for Americans (many of whom suffer from obesity) to have instant access to dietary information prior to ordering.
Regardless of whether the information is posted on the menu, or not, thanks to The DON'T DIET OR EXERCISE System you will have instant access to nutritional information before you order.
Even if you don't have access to this information, you can still order more smartly by avoiding foods that are fried, breaded, or prepared with cream sauces, butter, oil, au gratin, alfredo, or with gravy. Instead, think, steamed, poached, roasted, broiled, boiled, grilled, or baked.
Don't be afraid to have your meal altered to your specifications. For example, the Outback Steakhouse encourages it. They tell you when to say, "Hold the butter," when to say, "No cheese or croutons, please," and when to request, "No butter or glaze during preparation."
Want to cut your caloric load of your restaurant meal by 50 percent? Easy: Cut your meal in-half, and take half home in a to-go container. You've instantly reduced your meal by half-the-calories, plus you've got a fancy lunch for tomorrow.
Desserts are not forbidden thanks to The DON'T DIET OR EXERCISE System. You can even enjoy after-meal desserts at your favorite restaurants. With all the tools that are available to you, you can make excellent decisions about how and what to partake of, and how much to eat.
Learn the facts, and start thinking for yourself. Then go forward with confidence to achieve improved health through your own weight loss and maintenance program.
