The other day I was talking to someone and she asked what was ONE thing she could do to break through her current weight loss plateau.
My immediate answer. Start eating at home more often.
You see, this woman is a social butterfly. She’s out more often than she’s home. Single. In her late 30’s, enjoys cooking, but not quite as much as she loves going out to eat or getting take out.
Here’s the problem with that.
Restaurant food is LOADED with calories, fat, and salt. All of those will hold you back from weight loss.
When I say loaded — I mean LOADED with hidden calories and fat you’d never expect.
Here are some RESTAURANT SHOCKERS that can help you navigate the menus when you do in fact go out. BUT, the easiest way to control the foods and ingredients in your body is eat out less often. Otherwise you’ll permanently struggle to lose or maintain your weight loss.

WOW — those appetizers alone have more sodium than you should eat in an entire DAY. And then the fat and saturated fat are equal to several days worth. And appetizers are just the starter, too.
Mohr Results Bottom Line: Eat out less often. Make it a once in awhile thing rather than a several times/week thing. The only way to control what’s in your body is putting what you know to be good in there!
