Free Diet Menu #4
Today we'll enjoy wholesome cereal for breakfast - and if you choose whole grain you'll be adding a nutritional boost to your diet plan as well as assist in supporting your digestive system.
For lunch we'll dine out at McDonald's - but take note that you can choose any restaurant establishment that you wish. Simply request a nutrition guide from your server.
The nutrition guide lists the menu selections in addition to the calories, carbohydrates, total fats, saturated fats, Trans fats, sodium, cholesterol, protein and sugar in the menu item. It may also contain the nutritional content for Vitamins A and C, Iron and Calcium.
These nutritional elements are chiefly important to health-wise diners. For example, if Pete is dining out and wants to order soup - but his doctor has recommended that he monitor his sodium intake, he should look to see the amount of salt contained within the soup selections on the menu.
The same applies for diabetics who might be monitoring their sugar intake, or for dieters who are monitoring fat intake.
Make your choice from the menu keeping total calories at about 500 kcals for the meal.
Snack Suggestions: Enjoy two fresh, raw natural selections of fruit of your choice such as a banana or an apple or a pear.
