Choosing from a Restaurant Menu When you Are on a Strict Diet
Perhaps you are on a strict diet for your weight or general health, in which case you will have to accept that eating out may simply not be right for you until you have reached your goals. Or maybe you are on a strict diet from your doctor to keep you healthy, help you to avoid foods which are making you ill or which you are very allergic to.
In this case, your diet may well be a lifelong thing, in which case you absolutely should not have to avoid going to places and joining your friends for nights out just because of your condition. If you want to go to a restaurant when you are on a strict diet, here are some ways to choose from the menu.
- Look at everything carefully. Most menus will list the ingredients as they appear in the dish, and you should pay close attention to the whole menu to be sure of discovering any ingredients which you cannot eat, or which will work against your diet.
- Ask questions. If you are not sure about something, ask your waiter if they can check what is in a certain menu item. If there is something you can’t eat in one of the items you are interested in, you could also ask your waiter to ask the chef if it can be removed.
- Ask about the kitchen. If you are very allergic to something, you should ask the waiter if the item is in the kitchen and if it is likely that anything you might eat has been prepared on a surface which has previously held this item.
- Be clear about your diet. You may even want to do this when booking the table, but be perfectly clear about your diet and what it means for your health, so that the restaurant understands how serious it is that you avoid certain food items.
