You don’t have to follow me or my husband long on social media to know that we LOVE sushi and have even coined #sushiSunday because that’s our day to relax and enjoy a meal out together even if in contest prep. So I get many messages asking about what I ordered or what Allen ordered and so I thought, let me put all our tips here in one place.
If you are tracking macros, then the first question is how do you track sushi? First off, anytime that you are eating out, its going to be a guesstimate. So the numbers that I am going to give you are for reference and will not be exact because you are not weighing the food or preparing yourself. This is just meant to give suggestion.
I have found that I can enjoy sushi without guilt on a high fat/low carb day or a high carb/low fat day! Just like any other restaurant where you are trying to stay health conscious, you have to be willing to make special requests and this should not pose a problem at all. I ask for sauces on the side so that I can just use as a dipping sauce.
My favorites are teriyaki, sweet eel, and ponzu. First off, I usually start with a salad… either the house salad with a mango type dressing or the seaweed salad.
Seaweed Salad: 45 Calories - Fat 4 / Carbs 4 / Protein 1
Total: Fat 13 / Carbs 8 / Protein 20-22 (depending on my macros and appetite, I may have 2 orders of sashimi)
I ask for no avocado in my rolls :)
Total: Fat 6 / Carbs 54 / Protein 29
If it’s a cheat meal, then relax and order what you want with the sauces and all the extras and enjoy your meal! Hope this helps!
Until next time, stay BeautyStrong!
