How to Track Macros When Eating Out


At least a few times a week, I have a client or a reader ask me some form of the following question:

"It's my niece's birthday this weekend and I'm a little nervous about how I'm going to track my food. What's your best recommendation for staying on my program when eating out?" 

Of course, "niece's birthday" could easily be replaced with "dinner with a girlfriend," "family get-together," or even, "going frolicking in the mountains for 48 hours with no contact with civilization".

Whatever the case may be, this much is clear: we don't tend to do too well with uncertainty.

How much oil is in that steak?
Are you sure you didn't put butter in this dish?
Dressing on the side. Are you sure the dressing's on the side?

I'm sure you've been there before.

I figured it was about time that I cover this topic in a video.

Hope you like it!
