Bonus Resources

To make your dieting even easier, we've included a couple bonus guides for you: a Healthy Takeout Guide for healthier on-the-go options, and a Snack & Dessert Guide (because who doesn't get a sweet tooth?).

Before we begin…

I want to start by saying that this guide is simply that - a guide. There are only a handful of takeout options below, but the principles that make these great choices for staying on track despite eating takeout are applicable to nearly any restaurant you go to.

Yes, you can make good choices despite the restaurant. Do we want fried chicken from Chick-Fil-A? Of course. But grilled chicken is the better option because it has fewer calories, a better nutrition profile, and will be just a satiating after you eat it.

Small choices add up to big results.

So follow the guidelines below, but also use the principles in any situation you find yourself in to make the healthiest choice possible.

Lunch/Quick Meals

  • Chipotle - I always go for a burrito bowl here. You can choose exactly what you want that allows you to hit the macros that you need… And let's face it, Chipotle is amazing!
  • Subway - I don't have this very often since I try not to have bread that much, but when I do it's always good. You also have the option of getting a salad and just loading it up with veggies. And the same thing as Chipotle, you can add or take away as much as you want in order to hit your macros. There are many options and it is very filling.
  • Panera Bread - They have many options here, though I like to get one of their salads and add chicken to it. It's always light and refreshing.


  • Bonefish Grill (this is just one of our favorites) - I actually just went here for the first time a few weeks ago and it was so delicious! In general, they have lots of options for fish and lean meat, making it a great place to make healthy choices. I ended up ordering an Ahi Tuna Steak that came with 2 sides, so I chose garlic mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli. It was so enjoyable and I felt full and satisfied!

Quick Tip:

Most restaurants have online menus with nutritional facts, so look it up before heading out. If the restaurant doesn't have the nutrition information on their site, try checking directly in My Fitness Pal as well. This will help you go into the dinner with a game plan, and also help reduce the options so you don't feel stressed or overwhelmed when you go out.

Any other restaurants you go to should have plenty of options; you just have to start approaching going out differently to support your goals, rather than derail them.

Listen, I get it… It's tough to not snack. And since I know myself, and I'm guessing you know yourself too, we should just find healthier options for those snacks when we feel like having them.

That's why we put this Snack & Dessert Guide together. Included below are some healthier options to satisfy everything from a late night sweet tooth to that 2pm lull when you'd otherwise reach for something unhealthy.
