Low-Fat Restaurant Dining
Skip the gravies and sauces
(HealthDayNews) -- Eating out while you try to slim down is possible, if you avoid the menu's high-fat culinary delights.
The Cardiac Rehabilitation Center at Johns Hopkins University Hospital offers these low-fat dining suggestions:
- Avoid foods prepared with sauces or gravies.
- Avoid battered or fried foods.
- Ask for the salad dressing to be served on the side, then use it sparingly.
- Enjoy the roll but pass on the butter.
- Choose steamed over marinated or creamed vegetables.
- Order sherbet or sorbet instead of ice cream or other high-fat desserts.
