Dining Out on Fat Burning Diets

There is nothing as exciting as dining out. However, when one is on a fat burning diet it may present you with some serious choices. Eating out is about pleasure!

One can look at it in two ways, the pleasure of the company or the pleasure of treating your taste buds to a new adventure. I, however treasure the company as well as great healthy food. What is more enriching than the company of loved ones and a treat on tantalizing healthy food?

Back to reality one sit with the dilemma of safe weight loss and on the other hand, one wants to be great company.  So let us get one thing straight “I want to lose weight, but I want to do it in a joyful spirit. I do not want to be a spoil sport!”

What can we do then to make dining out a joyful affair without long faces and feelings of guilt afterwards?

1 Do Some Homework

Most Restaurants are on the Internet. Have a look beforehand at their menu’s and phone and make sure how they prepare their food.  By deciding beforehand what to order one is not tempted by the sight of other choices.

2 Be Drink wary

I’m very wary of drinks when dining out. It is very easy to consume many empty calories without realizing it. Therefore, I choose to drink cold water with lemon or lime wedges. This way I make sure, I do not consume empty calories and after three glasses of water I’m also not that hungry and tend to order smaller portions

3 Don’t Be Fooled By These Buzz Words

The following add-ons are unnecessary and may make your dining out experience unpleasant. Just for the record, they may taste delicious but the taste is going to sit around your waist because they are real fattening. Stay clear of cream sauce, oil, butter, battered, gravy, smothered, au gratin, Alfredo.

4. Make your own menu

Politely request that no sauce, oil or butter be used in your dish. Also, ask the waiter to replace the starch with extra vegetables. This is a great way to save on calories and to ensure that you fill up with more healthy food, without any guilt feelings afterwards.

5 Enjoy the company

Eat slowly and concentrate on the taste of the food. Analyze the taste sensations try to establish new tastes that you aren’t familiar with. Enjoy the conversation and give special attention to your dining partner.

If you can remember that the eating part is NOT why you are dining out you have come a long way. Dining out, for me, is about excellent conversation, enjoyment of my surroundings and relaxation away from home.

Dining out successfully on your fat burning diet is what you are making of it. You can choose what you want, but staying on a healthy weight loss diet and achieving your weight loss goals are far more satisfying than a one night eating out spree. Enjoy your life by living your dream!

Dear Fat Burning Diet Diary

Dear Diary,

Recently my mirror and scale confronted me with the fact that I’m overweight. What? Me? Shocked and rattled I took a day to take inventory of my life. I realized I need some drastic measures because this body is not me. Well, you guess right I need a fat burning diet.

A look down memory lane reveals that I was always a skinny child.  With any meal, I was always the last to finish. Most of the time I did not even finish my plate and my mother out of pure frustration let me leave the table.  Eating was just not high on my priority list. This nostalgia of a happy, carefree life is now urging me to take stock and change my life with a fat burning diet.

Even after the birth of my two children, I had still a good figure. Well, not a beauty pageant figure, but that never bothered me.  Just as long as I can go to a shop and get well fitting clothes that shows all the necessary curves everything was honky dory.

groenteDear Diary, you know what they say, desperate times needs desperate measures. I need desperate measures to get me out off this deep, black pit.  I need to rethink why food, the mirror, my clothes and the scale suddenly became my worst enemy.  I need to retrain my mind and body with strategies from a fat burning diet.

Yes, Dear Diary, I’m on track. I’m setting goals with my fat burning diet. I’m seeing the end result to walk into any boutique and get myself that daring, figure hugging, creation.

For success with any fat burning diet, the following is essential:
1    Setting Weight Goals.
How does one set weight loss goals? The following questions helped me to focus on that I want to achieve but also on what changed in my life.
Why do I want to lose weight?
What are the negative aspects of being overweight?
What are the positive aspects of being slim, fit and healthy?
What is my greatest fear of staying as I am?

2    I need a plan
I’ve set my goals, but how on earth am I going to get there. That figure hugging dress is hangingfiets there.  What steps do I need to fit into that dress? Yes, I need a fat burning diet with fat burning food and fat burning workouts.

3    Action
The next step is to take action. Goals and plans are not going to help if I don’t lift my butt from the couch.  I need to put my plans into action. I won’t see immediate results but just by starting I can expect to gather momentum and pretty soon there will be results. First small, but as the snowball effect kicks in the small successes will lead to bigger ones and eventually a jaw dropping spectacle.

Dear Diary, you always stood with me through thick and thin. Thank you for clearing my mind. I know now that I need a new lifestyle and it is possible with a fat burning diet, positive attitude and the will to conquer this situation.
