When I first moved to Los Angeles, I became a certified personal trainer and fitness spokes model for the International Sports Sciences Association. I still pull on my fitness knowledge to help my clients get a better body for their stage performance, and I want to share some of that with you in these bonus Fit Tip episodes.
Today’s Fit Tip is how to order a healthy meal at a restaurant. When you’re always on the go, it’s hard to cook at home and pack your meals, so you find yourself eating out a lot. Don’t be tempted by the delicious, greasy, fatty smells and the hoopla of other people ordering delicious garbage. Stay true to your healthy lifestyle. At the same time, you don’t want to look like you only eat ice cubes and almonds. Here are my three go-to meals for eating out:
1. Grilled chicken over romaine or spinach salad with fruit and a side of extra virgin olive oil
2. 4 oz filet steak and steamed broccoli
3. Seared tuna with steamed spinach and carrots
Then, (here’s the trick) I whisper to the waiter, I’m really allergic to butters and most oils, could you be sure mine is cooked in a separate pan with olive oil only?
And you are allergic. Most people are, they just continue to deal with the side effects that bad foods have on their bodies. They’ll usually take pity and understand the social predicament and quietly honor your request. Plus, if someone overhears, they’ll know you didn’t want to make a big deal of it and do ya a solid to keep it their secret.
Now, you’re we’ll on your way to a better body – and that, ladies, is how you win a pageant.
