Tips For Eating Out on the 21 Day Fix!!

It's Monday and as you set up your game plan for the weekend I'm sure your weekend is packed with parties, sports, or dinner at a restaurant. As I'm writing this sentence my head is already starting to spin because I know that all of these things are filled with high fat, sugary, and hard to resist temptations. With that game plan you have to PLAN AND PREP!! Here is a blank meal plan for you to use for your week! 

21 Day Fix Blank Meal Plan 
To keep from having to stress every time you go out in public to a restaurant or
 an event here are some tips from Tosca Reno's 
Stripped book to keep your head in check! 
The Eat Clean Diet falls directly inline with the 21 Day fix clean foods but the
21 Day fix will give you portion control easy with the color coded cup!! SCORE! 
Cheat meal NOT A CHEAT DAY!!

Planning is best, when you are out you always need a game plan. 
You shouldn't avoid eating out because once you enter a 
restaurant you have to be in control!!
 Look at the menu as a way to create YOUR food!! 
You don't have to surrender control over what is in your food. 
Ask questions nicely and review the menu online so you are 
not pressured into a fast decision. 
I worked in restaurants as my first job at 16 till 30 as a side job and 
I know that if you
 ask they are willing to work with you!! 
More Work BIGGER TIP! 

1. Develop an "I don't have to eat it all!" Mindset. Make up your mind before you 
go that you don't have to get the most bang for your buck by cleaning your plate. 

2. Satisfy hunger only-Don't Gorge. Eat for the purpose of satisfying your hunger, 
but no more. 

3. Start small and green. Start your meal with a salad, without dressing. 
Use a spritz of lemon or some balsamic vinegar. 

4. Broth is best. When there is no salad option have a broth based soup.

5. NO BREAD PLEASE! Remember this is not helping you achieve your 
10 pound weight loss goal.

6. Clean Cooking techniques rock! Look for entree options featuring steamed or 
raw veggies and grilled, baked or roasted meats or fish. 
If they aren't listed, ask the server to prepare it that way. 
Oh and don't always trust the low fat or fat free symbols. 

7. Portion control is in. Have a good look at your plate when it arrives. 
Ask for a doggie bag and split your meal in half.

8. Fletcherize. 
The practice of chewing each mouthful a min of 25 times. It gives your body a chance to 
recognize when you are becoming full. 

9. Zero Tolerance. 
You want to avoid alcohol because sugar can derail you in the most powerful way. 
Have sparkling water with lemon or lime slices.
One the 21 Day fix you can replace a YELLOW 
container with red wine!
If you want to partake.... schedule it into your week! 

10. Stop before the end. 
Think of your plan to shed those pounds, if you can't resist something sweet ask 
for a dish of fresh fruit and leave it at that if you have a 
fruit left in your allowance for the day! 

If you doubt your ability to resist restaurant offerings then pre-eat! Then when you go to a restaurant or social event you don't have to worry about what's on the menu 
and you can focus on socializing.

If you can't resist the dessert table then pack a few clean cookies in a Ziploc bag and 
pull them out with your coffee while everyone else is eating their sugar 
laden cookies and cake. 
If you have to go through a drive through, familiarize yourself with the menu. 
Never super size and make smart food choices by ordering grilled chicken and a side salad. 
Cut up the chicken and place on salad and go with olive and vinegar dressing or, 
low fat balsamic. 

One of the most difficult things to manage while following a healthy 
lifestyle is your social life.
So surround yourself with family and friends that support what you are doing 
and are not sabotaging your efforts. Instead of going out drinking or to a 
restaurant here are some 

Meet a friend at the gym

Have a game night at home with healthy clean snacks listed below!! 

Batters up- organize a kickball or softball game in your neighborhood or with the kids.

Volunteer together at a local charity

Meet at the park for a walk or bike ride

21 Day Fix Snacks 

Eating clean with the 21 Day Fix and creating a healthy lifestyle doesn't 
have to mean that you are becoming a boring person. 
There is so much more to experience than food and drinks! 
Live outside the box and you will have people wondering what you are 
doing because yourenergy and personality are on fire!!!
