FLEXIBLE DIETING @ RESTAURANTS 🍽
🔺Haven’t had an arm pump like this in a minute! So just sharing that for funsies. As you saw last week, I was on vacay and used my macros to indulge once a day. I went back home up 2 lbs and have been hovering around there. Sodium + on my feet nonstop may still be playing a role.
🔺Even though I tracked and stayed consistent, I used my macros for less than optimal foods. Traveling again for work but this time, tightening the reigns.
🔺I’ll keep you updated on the bod when I get home at the end of the week but for now some tips to on-track ordering:
✔️Stick to the basics - swipe 👈🏼 for egg white omelette with ham & veggies + plain pancakes - no butter, SF syrup on the side.
✔️Point 2 - always get sauces/dips/dressings on the side. Swipe for @chipotle
order. Rule 1: basics - Chicken, rice, & pico. Hot salsa and sour cream on the side. I weighed beforehand, dipped my fork in before every few bites and weighed after. That sh*t adds up quick.
✔️Lean meats and veggies - duh. But stick with egg whites, ham or turkey varieties for bfast, chicken, shrimp or leaner cuts for other meals. Fill up in veggies and fit in other carbs as needed. Restaurants love sneaking in fat so choose lesser options and track according to suspicions (ex: your egg whites come dripping in butter 🙄).
✔️Bring simple to pack dry items - I have oatmeal & protein + protein bars + rice cakes to fill macros as needed. All great for bfast, pre- and/or post-workout.
✔️Plan ahead - I knew I wouldn’t get to eat for five hrs which is why I got the pancakes to keep me full. A lot of carbs but I planned for it purposely.
🔺Those are my best tips! I’ll share more on my story tomorrow so check it out!
