From what I hear from friends and readers, it's not so much that you don't want to make healthier decisions it's that you don't necessarily know how to. This fact becomes even clearer, when I listen to you order a veggie omelette that comes with extra cheese, a glass of whole milk, and whole-wheat pancakes with maple syrup, as you simultaneously complain about how you can't figure out how those couple of extra pounds keep sneaking up on you. While you scarf down your seemingly "healthy" breakfast, I sit in astounded wonder about how you missed the tell-tale signs of hidden fat and calories in the meal you ordered. Then, I realize that while what you ordered has a lot of the right buzz words...veggie, whole-grain, milk...you've failed to also acknowledge the dead give-aways that the meal isn't as innocent as it sounds. So, let's make a list of words that describe menu items that are best steered clear of. I'll start:

extra cheese or cheesy...go with lite, half, or, hey, skip it all together
whole milk...go with skim...if you can't drink the stuff straight up look for 2%
omelette...ask for egg-whites...ask for it to be prepared without added batter...yes, it's pancake
batter that makes those restaurant omelettes so much fluffier than the ones you
attempt at hom
breakfast syrup...ask for a sugar-free version and use either sparingly...consider passing on the
pancakes alltogether...do you really need to eat all that in one sitting?
battered
fried
sauteed...aka, soaking in butter and oil
breaded...if it's a meat like chicken, ask for it plain
creamy...keep this in mind for soups and go for broth-based options...also to be avoided in salad
dressings
candied
buttery
the aisse's...think mayonaisse, bournaisse, hollandaise, etc...look for it on sandwiches and in
sauces or dips...opt for avocado or mustard or nothing at all
crispy
crusted

Okay, now it's your turn...
