Eating out and Eating Smart

By January 8, 2015 No Comments

imgresOne of the hardest things for our clients, and myself included, is eating out without sabotaging the entire day. It can feel easy to stay on track when you prepare and cook your own meals, but when you are tempted with some not-so-healthy options you can feel pressure to slip up.

Well have no fear! Since our Take Down Challenge is beginning in less than a week, we thought we would give you a few options to help you along in your journey.

Wahoo’s Fish Taco

imgresWahoo’s atmosphere is beachy and laid back.

You can pick up a to-go order or order in and relax in their beach vibe restaurant.
Either way, there are some menu items I would recommend for the healthy eaters…
and you don’t have to just eat a Fish Taco.


Wahoo’s Saladsimgres
Dressing on side and save some of the meat for later. They pile the protein on, which is unlike many other salads, but while it is a good amount for some, it is too much for the 2 or 3 unit eaters. But it is always good to stock up on leftover proteins, so get a box!

Chicken Sandwiches
No sauces on your sandwich unless YOU divvy it out
and put it on. And same as most times, only eat half the bread.
Throw it out early so it’s not there staring at you!

Each taco is about 2 units worth of food. If you need a 3, 4, or 5 unit meal, stick to only 2 tortillas and make up the rest of your carbs with something else like a side salad.

The bowls include a protein, rice, and beans. Our suggestion, ditch the rice,
and don’t eat all the beans…that will spike you carb count significantly.
4 and 5unit people eat about 3/4 the bowl.
2 and 3 unit people, eat about half this bowl.

As always friends, sauce on the sides, easy cheese, MUCHO easy tortillas and
chips. Pour on all the salsa you like.
