Dr Oz: Low-Fat Take Out Lunch Options
Dr. Oz decided to go undercover to the place you unwittingly eat the most calories. He says lunch is often the meal when most people consume too many calories, so he disguised himself as an employee at one of New York City’s most popular lunch spots and what he found was quite shocking!
Dr Oz: How to Order Healthy Pizza
Dr. Oz says one of the most popular lunch choices for a lot of people is pizza, but he does not want you give it up completely, so instead he has a tip to make a little bit healthier. He recommends ordering your pizza with less cheese, which is where the most fat lies, and on a thin crust with a few salad toppings on top to help you feel fuller longer.

- Dr. Oz’s healthy choice: 147 calories & 6 grams of fat.
Dr Oz: Regular Sandwich vs Lettuce Wrap
Dr. Oz says the next most popular choice at the cafe where he worked was the sandwich station. He witnessed one woman order a honey maple turkey sandwich on white bread, which is loaded with carbs and not the best choice. He suggested she turn her sandwich inside out and order a lettuce wrap instead. It can be filled with beans, corn and tortilla strips as healthier carb options, but will still be tasty and satisfying.

Dr Oz: Healthy Lunch Rice Bowl
The last place that Dr. Oz ran into a lot of lunch mistakes was the hot buffet, where one woman piled almost three pounds of food into her takeout container. A healthier option would be a lunch bowl containing grilled chicken, spinach, peppers, onions and rice.
