It isn't hard to eat gluten-free in restaurants at all. Gross oils is another story.

Assuming you're eating out for social reasons, just eat less. Don't bother with paleo when eating out. Or only the broadest of principles - stick to protein, don't order the huge plate of pasta. Don't think you're going to be gluten-free or avoiding vegetable oils though, and assuming you've removed the bad from your at-home diet, a little when eating out is less than problematic.

One reason people put on weight over the last 40 y ears is they now earn enough to eat out rather than having to eat at home (in US and UK anyway). I virtually never eat out if I can help it but I do know it is a huge part of the lifestyle of many other people.

If I do eat out then something like meat./fish, no sauce plus veg is usually what I will have.

Eating out is expensive and the foods are less healthy and the portions can be enormous so it is not something I enjoy very much plus you have to sit up straight, not so easy to relax as you eat. I just don't like it.

Quick answer, big ol' salad, olive oil for dressing, add grilled (whateva, protein is on the menu)

This is a bit of a bore but it is reliable

like said youll probably have far better luck eating healthy at home. at a resteraunt just try to keep your food as 'clean' as possible, keep in mind they are trying to make the food taste good; so while they start with the base ingredients they will probably add oils/fats/sugars/salts to everything they can at every step they can. pick foods they cant add too many calories to and mind your serving sizes. im sure you can look up articles of calorie content of some dishes at restaurants. (spoiler: a good amount are in the 1-5000 calorie range)

tl: dr- be cognisant of portion sizes and calorie 'addons'

I avoid restaurants like the plague. When I do have to go I try to eat wild caught salmon, GF beef, organic chicken & veggies. Really just like I do at home. Fast food - never.
