About this Article

You've committed to a healthier lifestyle. You're exercising, you're eating well ­-- you're doing everything right. Then BAM! Friends or co-workers want to go out for dinner. What to do? I recently got a hands-on lesson on how to make good choices when eating out from my trainer, Push Fitness owner Joshua Steckler, when we had lunch at Muscle Maker Grill -- a fast casual-type restaurant with a variety of healthy choices.
