How can I eat healthy when dining out?

Here are tips for healthful eating away from home:

  • Choose restaurants that have low-fat, low-cholesterol menu items.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask for foods that follow your eating pattern if you can’t find what you need on the printed menu. This is important.
  • Order poultry, fish or meat that is broiled, grilled, baked, steamed or poached rather than fried.
  • Eat lean deli meats like fresh turkey or lean roast beef instead of higher-fat cuts like salami or bologna.
  • Look for vegetables seasoned with herbs or spices rather than butter, sour cream or cheese. Ask for sauces on the side.
  • Order a fresh mixed greens salad with char broiled and sliced beef or chicken on top.
  • Order a nice steak, use the lean cut choices and have a salad on the side
  • Order a nice rack of lamb and say no to the bread and potatoes, but go for that green mixed salad.
  • Drink lots of water, instead of wine or beer. You can have Perrier or other carbonated waters, as long as there’s no sugar.
  • Order a low-fat dessert like sherbet, fruit ice, sorbet or low-fat frozen yogurt.
  • Control serving sizes by asking for a small serving, sharing a dish or taking some home.

This is where I come in: Hi, my name is Rob Lagana, and as a fitness coach and accomplished competitive bodybuilder with over two decades of experience, I’m on a mission to turn your fitness and wellness goals into reality. Both results-driven and compassionate, I provide all our clients with a personalized experience and specially tailored workout routines and meal plans. I also firmly believe in fitness being fun; I’ve never been an all work, no play kind of guy.

Growing up, I faced some hardship due to the ocular albinism I was born with (a condition that leaves me legally blind for life). However, that didn’t stop me from becoming a successful competitive bodybuilder, which ultimately inspired me to help others achieve happiness, confidence, and overall wellness in their own lives.

In addition to training consistently and assisting my valued clients, I’m currently writing a book entitled “Totally Healthy,” which offers tried-and-true tips and tricks to fat loss and toning up by harnessing a balanced holistic approach.
