Losing weight does not mean you are forever barred from eating out. Keep your social life flowing, and avoid the temptation of refusing to go out. Instead, keep in mind a few tips to keep the calories and sodium in your meals down when enjoying a night out on the town.

Eat lightly the day before and on the same day on which you eat out to set aside some extra calories. This puts less stress on what you can and cannot eat. Salads are common choices, but many places fill up salads with cheeses, meats and creamy sauces that significantly bump up the calories and salt. If you choose a salad, ask the restaurant to go easy on cheese, and avoid meats that are fried. Use thin sauces, such as vinaigrette, in place of creamy ones, such as ranch.

If you do not want a salad, choose options that are grilled or broiled, and ask the restaurant to put any sauces on the side for dipping. Instead of potatoes or other starchy sides, ask for steamed or fresh vegetables or a small side salad. Avoid fatty cuts, such as rib eyes, and opt instead for leaner types of meat for your main course.

Eating out is not taboo when you are trying to lose weight; it simply takes a little more thought, preparation and planning. If possible, look up nutritional information about the restaurant before you go, or ask the waiter to bring you a nutrition menu. This way, you know exactly how many calories you are eating.
