Tips

Eating Out – Mexican

If you want to cut down on your fat intake ask the waiter to refrain from bringing tortilla chips to your table. If you’re planning a Starch Meal, ask for warm corn tortillas instead. You can roll them up and dip or scoop salsa and/or guacamole.

Protein Meal

If you’re having a Protein meal and want anĀ appetizer order a Fruit or veggie plate, or other compatible pick from the Appetizer menu.

Avoid the corn tortillas unless you’re planning a Starch Meal and of course no white flour tortillas.

Avoid the white rice dishes.

Chili Rejellenos

Fajitas (give the tortillas to someone else at your table) and use a fork.

Salad – ask the waiter to leave the beans and tortilla chips off. If that’s not possible then remove as many as you can and don’t worry about the rest.

Avoid the white flour tortillas entrees, but if you like the fillings that come with one of these dishes ask for that menu item without the tortilla and eat it as is or pile it on top of a salad.

Vegetable or beef based soups are good choices. Avoid chicken broth if possible as it’s really too acidic, but I will sometimes choose to relax this guideline when eating out as it can be difficult to find a good vegetable or beef broth soup.

Starch Meal

Avoid the white flour tortilla entrees, but if you like the fillings that come with one of these dishes ask for that menu item without the tortilla and eat it as is, with a corn tortilla or pile it on top of a salad.

Avoid the white rice dishes.

Bean dishes are fine, especially if they’re low-fat, just make sure to ask the waiter to skip the cheese. If that’s not possible it’s a small enough amount to be fine for one meal.

I've always abhorred the idea that the only way to lose weight is to starve yourself, eat foods that are foreign to you, or gulp down special weight loss potions. I've proved that it is not only possible, but it's easy and fun to lose weight The UnDiet way. The UnDiet is extremely flexible, allowing you to make deviations based on your personal taste, the choices confronting you at any given time, your mood, your cooking skills and the time you have available. A gourmet cook can be happy with The UnDiet as well as those who don't know or care what saute means. You can eat out at restaurants and parties and still not fall off The UnDiet. You can eat olive oil, butter, cream, meat, mayonnaise and still not fall off The UnDiet. You can eat until you're full and still lose weight, once you've mastered the basic principles of The UnDiet. So dig in to this blog, subscribe to the newsletter for lots of extras not published on the blog and get ready for the Kindle book coming soon.

We want to hear from you :)
