The Doctors: Eating Healthy When You Go Out To Eat
Denise Austin said on the seventh day of her seven day diet plan, everyone is allowed to splurge a little bit, but they need to know how to splurge when they go to a restaurant.
Austin suggested getting corn tortillas instead of flour tortillas when getting Mexican food. She said it can save you up to 300 calories. If you are heading to a Chinese restaurant, Austin suggested ordering egg drop soup as an appetizer. The egg drop soup only has about 70 calories, while wonton soup has around 140 calories and hot and sour soup can have a lot more due to the large amounts of peanut oil.
As far as Italian food goes, Austin suggested ordering a whole wheat pasta dish with vodka sauce. Although the vodka sauce does have a small amount of cream in it, it is still going to be pretty healthy compared to clam sauce which has around 170 calories in the sauce alone.
