Can You Dine Out and Still Lose Weight?

Melissa Pfeister, a member of our ETNT Medical Review board and the founder of the health and wellness brand Stripped with Melissa, knows what it takes to get people to lose weight and keep it off. She has a proven track record of helping clients lose 30 pounds or more with simple diet tweaks and holds a certificate of certificate in Nutrition Science from the Stanford School of Medicine.. Turns out, when dining out at a restaurant, it’s those small, little tweaks to your order that can add up to big health benefits.

“It’s all about the choices you make,” says Melissa. “For instance, my first thought [of a healthy option] would be a sushi restaurant with lots of edamame and lots of fresh fish and seafood, but then again, you can order fried rock shrimp tempura in a creamy aioli sauce there, too. You just have to look a little harder and be a little more creative, but healthy options are always, always there.”
