When you’re out for a Holiday lunch for work or meeting friends for fun, or just out on a date, try to follow the portion rules that help you stay on track with your eating plan as a part of clean eating.  Ask the server to bring you a go-box straight away, and take the excess portion off (because they over portion everything as you know) before you start eating.  For me, if it’s on my plate…I’m going to eat it!  So I take it off straight off the bat, pack it up and enjoy what I’ve ordered.  Keep your meat portions to a ‘fist size’ and let the vegetable (except for a baked potato filled with sour cream and butter) take up half your plate.

Ask your server to steam your vegetables (if they slather it in oils and butter it negates the health benefits of the vegetables).  If you are going the salad route, don’t use cream-based dressings or croutons on your salad.  It can end up having more calories than a cheeseburger!  If you get salad bar, don’t heap the mayo-based chicken salad or pasta salad all over your greens (you know why).

It’s good to have a cheat meal if you enjoy them in moderation.  Moderation in A) the number of cheat meals per week, otherwise they string together to become…your eating plan! or B) have moderation in what foods compose your cheat meal.  Make it fun, but not so excessive that you’re feeling remorseful the next day.
