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.
