A Good Place for a Good Meal
Yes, you can still enjoy your favorite foods at the Olive Garden and lose weight too - as long as they are within a reasonable amount where caloric and dietary fat values are concerned.
Let's take a look at a few of their popular menu items that can fit into almost any healthy weight loss plan - like their Shrimp Primavera for about 365 kcals and only six grams of total dietary fat - and only one of such is in the form of saturated. That's quite impressive.
Fishing for Weight Loss
Another item that is quite delicious is the Herb Grilled Salmon and the portion size is quite generous. While it may hold a tab over 500 kcals, that's still in-line with a weight loss plan that doesn't approve of starvation methods for losing fat.
Let's Do Italian!
Even the Spaghetti & Meatballs for a tab over 400 kcals and 20 grams of total dietary fat make an excellent option.
If you order the entree that is lowest in caloric values - Venetian Apricot Chicken, then you'll even have room to add a serving of the delicious and hearty Minestrone Soup.
Watch Salt Intake
The sodium content of all of the items are a tab high, but not in comparison to many other fine dining restaurants.
The larger portioned meals can be shared with a friend or family member, thus slashing calories and fat content in half, and you don't have to eat everything on your meal plate. It's okay to request a to-go take-home container.
