Tips for Going Out to Eat While Trying to Lose Weight

When you’re trying to lose weight, it may be possible to maintain a routine or have good habits when you’re at home. But when you’re away from home, it can be harder to control your environment, meal times, and foods that are available.

Wherever you are, you want to make sure that you are making good choices for yourself, have more of the healthier foods and less of the ones that are not good for you. Keep healthy snacks like protein bars, nuts, and jerky handy. You can still have some of your favorite foods, but try limiting the quantity.

And remember that if you overindulge once in a while, it’s okay. It’s important not to give up and don’t be too hard on yourself. Just pick up where you left off and keep moving forward in your weight loss plan.

Listen in as Dr Ryan talks with a patient, Sarita, about what she does to stay on track with her weight loss plan when she goes out.
