Chapter 2 HOW TO USE THIS GUIDE As we all know from experience, the most difficult time to stick to a calorie goal is when you’re eating away from home. Sometimes it’s hard to pass up the cheesy goodness of nachos or the chocolatey indulgence of brownies, even though we know they’ll break our calorie budget. And you know what? It’s okay to eat a 400-calorie meal of ice cream once in a while. But sometimes we overdo the calories because we don’t know how many are in a dish that someone else prepared.

And many on-the-go meals have no stars. In fact, restaurants, fast food, and takeout vendors could do a much better job at putting higher nutrition options on their menus. Getting enough fiber and good fats when you’re eating on the go is particularly challenging. Do your best to collect each category at least once during the day through a combination of foods on the go and foods eaten at home or work and you’ll be on the road to healthy eating. You’re more likely to stick to a diet that fits your lifestyle and helps you make smart food choices wherever you are.

Next, divide the remaining half into three sections and fill two of these with rice, a medium flour tortilla, or two corn tortillas. Finally, fill the last section with steak, chicken, pork, fish, or beans as your protein.
