- Don't show up starving - you will find the chips irresistible.
- Order fajitas (any kind) and ask them to hold the tortillas and the side of beans and rice. Most fajita dishes come pilled with meat and veggies and will definitely fill you up.
- For a little treat, allow yourself some quacamole - eat it with a fork or with your meal and stay away from the tortilla chips.
- Order a skinny margarita. Most restaurants use margarita mix or sweet and sour loaded with sugar. Ask your bartender to make you a margarita with fresh squeezed lime juice. If they happen to have agave syrup, ask for a splash. If not, ask for a splash of triple sec (it's got a bit of sugar, but hey - much better than going with the regular margarita).
Shot of tequila
Fresh squeezed lime juice
Drizzle of agave or stevia to taste
Top with sparkling water or soda
Another trick: Indulge in some guacamole (if you're out of the Teardown Phase), but serve it with endive leaves or bell pepper scoops.
