9 menu hacks to help when you are tracking macros & trying to lose fat!

9 menu hacks to help when you are tracking macros & trying to lose fat! 

Say no to the bread basket. Of course if you are able to track it then by all means eat that bread but only ask for the 9 menu hacks to help when you are tracking macros & trying to lose fat!

 

  1. If you know you are going out to a restaurant ahead of time look at the menu online and decide what you are having before going out and track what you are having! Then once you go to the restaurant don’t even look at the menu this way you do not change your decision.
  2. Always ask for dressing on the side! They almost always put too much dressing on the salads and that is where a lot of the calories come from. Restaurants usually give you too much on the side as well so use it sparingly not the whole thing!
  3. amount you tracked this way you do not end up eating the whole basket!
  4. Depending on where your numbers are for the day if you get a burger or chicken sandwich go with no bread or if you reached your fats ask for no cheese and etc.
  5. If you are ordering pasta go for a half-portion. Even if it is not an option on the menu it doesn’t hurt to ask and if they can’t do it ask them if they can box up the other half this way you do not get tempted to eat more than you need.
  6. Be careful with dessert! If you cannot resist go for a lighter option most restaurants even if it they don’t have it on the menu can put together a small fruit plate. Again just make sure you track ahead so you are sure you can fit it.
  7. Drink the water given to you at the table. Water can help you fill up faster and help you from overeating.
  8. Appetizers can be good but not always!! Appetizers are often a lot closer to actual portion sizes than entrees. It obviously depends on what you would be getting I would not suggest to get a cheese quesadilla or mozzarella sticks for a meal but some type of protein like ahi tuna or something chicken.
  9. Sharing is caring!! Split a meal with someone so you do not over eat!

**Try your best to track ahead and if you can’t make the best decisions you can be smart and be able to pick and choose what you can make work into your day
