Hey Diet.com members! Happy Friday :)

If you're like many folks, you may be more prone to dining out on the weekends. While dining out at restaurants can be fun and tasty, it's also easy to fall into the "huge portions/unreasonable amounts of calories" trap.

Before you ditch your dining out plans this weekend, for fear that you'll ruin your diet, check out our Diet.com Dining Out Guide!

Our Dining Out Guide will help remind you that dining out doesn't have to be overwhelming and unhealthy. With this helpful guide, you can learn how to make the smartest menu choices, control your portion sizes, and spot the secret "code words" for high-fat!

Use this guide before you head out to your favorite restaurant and walk in with confidence! You can now find the Dining Out Guide via the Nutrition tab up there ^^ in our top navigation.

Here's one example of the kind of advice you can find in our guide:

Pizza Place

Healthy Choices
  • Choose colorful toppings such as peppers, onions, tomatoes, spinach, artichoke hearts, zucchini, mushrooms or broccoli.

  • If you choose meat, opt for Canadian bacon and pineapple or look for chicken based pizza

  • Stick to 1 or 2 small slices and add a garden salad to round out the meal and fill you up.

  • Don't forget, you get to build your own!
Tips
  • Ask for your pizza with less cheese and more sauce and veggies. Chances are you won't even miss the cheese!

  • If your family really wants pepperoni, compromise by ordering half of the pizza your way, you deserve it!

  • Avoid stuffed crust

  • Skip the white sauce and ask for red instead.
Head over and check out our handy Dining Out Guide today - and make it your go-to place to check before you head out the door to the restaurant!
