How do you stay on track eating at your favorite restaurant?
Trying to navigate your way through a night out a restaurant is a challenge that everyone who has ever been on a weight loss plan has had to face. But it doesn’t have to be scary. Check out a few of these “pro-tips” from Profile by Sanford members below:
“Have the sandwich made into a salad.” – Susan B.
“I look at menus online so I’m able to find restaurants that my family enjoys that also have profile friendly options. If I go in with a plan, I’m less tempted to go off plan.” – Mischa L.
“I’ve found that if I drink 32 ounces of water before I go to a restaurant, I’m not hungry for appetizers.”– Jen S.
“Get a to-go box as soon as your food comes and pack half your meal up.” – Michelle S.
“Lighten Things Up: I like to add water to my dressing and mix it up. It tastes the same and goes way further, especially if they don’t have a lighter option available.” – Kayla J.
“Take the Focus off Food: Can’t fight a craving? Call a friend and catch up!” – Ariana M.
Incorporating veggies is hard! What’s the best way to do it?
For those who have a hard time finding ways to add veggies to your diet (and who doesn’t), Profile members have some tasty ideas and recipes:
“Portobello mushrooms in place of bread or taco shells.” – Jaclyn B.
“ZOODLES!” – Anne E.
“Profile Vegetarian Chili cooked per package instructions then add in sautéed zucchini, onions and red peppers. Yum!” – Alisha R.
“Spinach goes well in any of the shakes. You can’t taste the flavor at all!” – Jill W.
“I eat my veggies raw with a flex dip!” – Heather D.
“Pizza with a Punch: Roasted veggies on the Profile pizza crust.” – Tracy H.
“Rhubarb is a Veggie?!” Rhubarb made with sugar-free jello. I am on sustain, so I add raspberries some of the time.” – Alvina M.
Any good advice for travelers?
Traveling is typically a time where weight loss and wellness go out the window. Especially if you don’t plan ahead. Of course you should go ahead and enjoy yourself on vacation but plan ahead and be prepared with these easy to follow tips:
“Separate your days. Put each day’s allotted shakes, bars and fiber drinks in sandwich-size plastic bags or separate them by binder clips and put in a large zip-top bag. Flatten boxes and put them in the bottom of your suitcase. I reuse my bags at home during the week. It’s easier to keep track of what you’ve eaten/not eaten if you can actually see it”. – Chances C.
“Pack healthy alternatives always. I pack a cooler with water and packs of shakes, bars and veggies”. – Jen S.
“When traveling, bring denture cleaning tablets (like Efferdent). Use a tablet with water to give your shaker bottle an on-the-go cleaning. It will help keep your shaker bottle odor-free until you get home!” – Jodi K.
“Pre-fill empty water bottles with the shake mix. At shake time, all you need is to add water and shake vigorously.” – Cathy R.
“Make muffins ahead of time. They travel well, refrigerated or not. If you have access to a fridge, protein balls work well.” – Bonnie P.
“Hotel Room Selection: I try to stay in rooms with a fridge and microwave.” – Jennifer B.
“Ice, Ice Baby: For the actual trip, fill your cup with ice chips. Keeps your mouth busy without snacking.” – Dorene V.
