Eating Away from Home

It is not recommended to eat at a restaurant during phase 2. Many restaurants inject sugar, MSG and other fillers into their food. You have no real control over what your food is cooked with. But sometimes, there is no choice.

Best bests:
Order a grilled chicken Cesar salad with the croutons, cheese and dressing on the side.
Order a spinach salad with a grilled chicken breast with the dressing on the side.
Take a stroll past the salad bar, can you make a meal? Ask for a grilled chicken breast and you have dinner!
A burger without the bun and a side salad.
A steak and a side salad.
