Eating and losing weight while on your shift

I just had my wisdom teeth taken out and I have lost 4 pounds without exercise. Why ? Because I can't eat any solid foods.

If you want to lose weight and stay healthy while working at a restaurant you have to have a plan.

  1. Eat 1 hour before your shift. You will burn up the calories if you have to run around a lot.
  2. Stay away from unserved / ring error food in the back
  3. Don't drink soda. If you do make sure its Sprite and only take a sip.
  4. After almost passing out from starvation I turned to Ensure Strawberry. It satisfied my craving and replenished my calories QUICK.
  5. If you eat a salad - don't use dressing. Restaurant dressing is LOADED with calories.
  6. If you are going to eat food from the restaurant you work at choose something from the low cal side.
  7. If you want to eat something that is high cal - offer to share with a friend. OR you can eat the meal an hour before your shift so that you will burn it off.
  8. DONT DRINK ALCOHOL. I was told if I drank alcohol while taking anti-biotics it would reverse the effects. I have been sober for 1 week 2 days.

The pounds are still coming off and I am hoping I will be able to eat steak in a week... Hope this helps anyone that is trying to lose weight while working as a server.
