on Practical Strategies for Dining Out

The soundbite summary: Eating meals that are 500-600 calories is a useful strategy (and filling) for most people, but that can be hard to find at restaurants. Even seemingly healthy options like a kale caesar chicken wrap can be >1,000 calories.

Topics include:

  • Eating out as part of our culture and why it’s a problem;
  • Calories in typical restaurant meals; 
  • What’s different about restaurant vs. home prepped meals;
  • Regulations or government campaigns to combat the issue;
  • Individual strategies to eat out without setting yourself back.
