Ye, although you might want to make sure and wait for another person here to confirm my answer as I am not very confident. Better yet, why don't you ask the Dukan Diet guys because they can assist you better...
Try the above link. It's from Men's health magazine, and it will take you to their Eat this, not that..
When I go out to eat I stick to a few basics that I know are more healthy options. Grilled chicken, grilled shrimp, veggie burgers (as long as they aren't fried), egg white omelettes with lots of veggies, salads with lots of veggies and protein with the dressing on the SIDE, I occasionally order steak but I don't use any steak sauce or anything extra...i would get that with steamed veggies or a side salad. just always remember to ask if things are fried or not (i've made that mistake before) sauce on the side is a great tip, and stay away from bad carbs (potatos, white pasta, white rice). Also...I would stay away from cheese, sour cream, mayo and all that good stuff because most restaurants do not have low fat options...
Thank you for all the information you gave and the websites. The Mens health was the best....Thank you..
Here's another site.
Here are the stats of an average Dukan Diet dinner and lunch.
Lunch Entree = 170 cal, 3.25 g fat, 26 g carb, 10 g protein.
Dinner Entree = 240 cal, 5.25 g fat, 28 g carb, 20 g protein.
I don't know the criteria WW uses to determine points but Dukan Diet follows a Low GI eating plan that balances calories/fat/protein/carbs. When I first started NS, I ate my Dukan Diet meal before I went and ordered a salad, veggies and chicken/fish/steak. Ate the salad (with my dressing) veggies and brought most of the protein home..
It's surprising when you start looking at the nutritional info on restaurants. We did yesterday when deciding where to eat lunch while we ran errands. What we discovered which isn't honestly all that surprising is that splitting an entree is really the way to go. Also - be prepared for shock when you see the actual sodium count on things. Yowza..
We ended up at On the Border (yes, Mexican) and split the grilled chicken fajita taco lunch. It came with beans which I tasted but we didn't eat and grilled veggies. 1 taco for each of us. Came in around 210 calories. Also I picked the cheese and tortilla strips off my side salad that I used their salsa on. If I'd realized, I could have ordered the salad minus those things to begin with...
Yea, the sodium and all the processed frozen foods at chain restaurants are a problem. Plus everyting is drizzled with fat or butter to try to give it flavor...
