I'm looking for a bit of information if possible please. I have recently started a new fitness programme and although it is a light programme, my diet plays a huge role in it. The information I'm looking for involves tips on healthy eating in pubs and restaurants. I'm going to be doing a bit of travelling with work and was looking for some tips on healthy eating while on the road as i will spend most of my time in hotel bars and restaurants ordering my lunch/ dinner and i would love to try stick to my training diet.
Any tips/ information would be greatly appreciated.

1The menus themselves will do very little to help you.The token "health option" will probably be disgusting and many other dishes will be a calorific nightmare. Here's a few tips:
Have a substantial breakfast and lunch and very little after 6pm. Ignore the bread basket, stick with just the main course, ask for sauces to be served on the side and always "hold the spuds". Obviously avoid most pastas, pies and anything fried or baked (although this won't be easy with pub grub!). Ethnic foods may appear a better choice but be aware of heavy sauces laden with salt and sugar etc. Head for outlets with fresh self-serve salad bars whilst avoiding the additional condiments and sprinkles.
Its not easy....

3same as anywhere.
normal diet - 40% good carbs (pasta, bread, rice etc), lots of veg, some protein, some dairy. Easy on the sweets, biscuits and fatty sauces. Don't eat low-fat or diet food -always full of sugar.
eat when you like, there isn't a magic time clock that says 'food after this time SHALL be converted to fat'. In the Med they eat late and aren't all fat.
continue for life.
