Diet Center Restaurant List

 

Helpful Hints
  • Be specific when ordering.  Request broiling with no butter, plain baked potato, etc...

  • Avoid buffets whenever possible!  Too much temptation!

  • Portions of protein are usually 6-8 oz.  Servings for main dinner entrees

  • Take your own low-fat or fat-free dressing if unsure of restaurant choices.

  • Salad bars can be dangerous – stick with fresh veggies, fruits & no creamy salads

  • Always make sure your food meets your specifications.  Ask for what you want!

  • Sodium contents in restaurant foods are usually high so drink your water

  • Seasonal Salads – be very careful that these are not higher in fat & calories than you think.
