Fudist – Conquering Restaurant Meals

theportions

If you are anything like me, you’ll jump at the chance to go out for a meal with good company. I mean, what’s not to love? No cooking, no dishes, no cleanup, and you can sit and talk with people who are important to you. Or, if you are going solo, you can save yourself some time, since there are only a limited number of hours in a day, you want to make the most of them.

Yet, trying to stick to a healthful diet, and going out to eat often can be difficult, especially if you are tracking your calories or macros. Perhaps you have encountered some of the following problems when trying to eat out while tracking:

  1. Feeling hopeless when looking over the menu, not knowing what to eat that is in line with your goals.
  2. Trying to look up nutritional information for the restaurant on your phone, then trying to figure out the math.
  3. Skipping going out so that you can stick to your diet. When I first started, I did this too many times to count, but never again. Your lifestyle changes should be a part of your life, not overtake it!

The good news is that there is an app for that.

Fueling Success With Success: How My Fatloss Taught Me How To Graduate College

Graduation Caps In Air

Last week was a big milestone for me, as it marked my last undergraduate class, and I’ve now finally completed my undergraduate degree. This article isn’t intended to be me bragging, as getting an undergraduate degree is hardly anything special; however, I wanted to share because I feel that without having lost and kept off 200lbs, I would not have been able to get my degree.

I’m sure that might sound silly, but bear with me.
