The Italian Eating Out Guide
Below you will see our extensive ‘eating out’ guide. This is simply a rough guide as to which meal choices are to be avoided, savoured, or indulged in. We have concentrated on starters, mains and side dishes. This is because if you are choosing to have 2 courses, you should choose starter and main, rather than dessert. Sides can also be helpful in bulking out a main course with extra veggies and salad.
When you think of Italian food, pizza, garlic bread and pasta will spring to mind. However, this will leave you feeling bloated, hinder weight loss and weight maintainence and leave you feeling sluggish and hungry within an hour or two. Instead aim to have plenty of fresh salad, with peppers and tomatoes, with lean protein such as fresh fish or chicken.
