How To Eat Out When You’re On A Diet (Recipe)

New York Smash Magazine  

Watching your diet? You don’t have to stop going to your favorite restaurants, according to fitness and nutrition expert Jenn Zerling.

When she goes out to her favorite restaurants, she follows this portion-control rule: “Remember, you only want to eat protein the size of your palm according to the JZ FITNESS NUTRITION app. Greens can be eaten all night long, as long as you don’t drown those things in sauces.”

For example, Zerling enjoyed a delicious dinner of New York strip steak and brussel sprouts at Baltaire Restaurant in Los Angeles. She ate half of the mouthwatering steak and took the rest home. The next day, she used those ingredients to create another healthy, flavorful meal.

“I simply cut the steak in half, and for many, you can cut the steak into three,” Zerling wrote on her Web site, JZFITNESS.COM.

For those with diet and health goals, here’s a guilt-free way to enjoy a meal at your favorite steakhouse.

Below: Jenn Zerling’s leftover steak recipe.
