Let's face it we all love eating out. However eating healthy at a restaurant isn't always easy. Here are some tips for eating well when eating out.
1. Say no to Bread
Don't even let the server put it on the table.
2. Skip the Booze
Because your body sees alcohol as a toxin, it works to burn those calories first—meaning that the calories in the food you eat alongside the booze are more likely to be stored as fat. And liquor makes you eat quicker, too. (From Men's Health)
3. Ask for added condiments on the side.
You can use them sparingly, if at all. This would include sauces, sour cream, butter, cheese, mayonnaise, and salad dressings.
4. Look for key words when ordering.
Avoid the words crispy, fried, or breaded. Look for the words grilled, baked, or broiled.
5. Avoid calories from beverages.
This includes soda, beer, wine, sweetened tea, juice, or specialty coffee drinks.
6. Substitute higher fat choices.
When ordering, substitute vegetables instead of french fries or potatoes. Choose low fat salad dressings instead of the full-fat version.
7. Know when to put the fork down
Conscious or mindful eating involves being in tune with your body and recognizing signs of hunger and fullness.
8. Avoid DesertsTypically restaurants have very limited or any healthy desert. You can always make something healthy at home
