How to Eat Out and Still Eat Healty

 Bodies By Cindy
How to Eat Out and Eat Healthy

  • Keep the same general guidelines you would normally abide by, such as avoiding high fat, high calorie, high sugar meals.
  • Try splitting an entree.
  • Don’t order dessert.
  • Skip the beer or wine and have water with lemon. If you gotta have a drink, try to find a lower calorie drink, like light beer and wine. Sometimes you can order cocktails with sugar free mixers.
  • Instead of fries on the side, get the grilled vegetables.
  • Don’t order pasta.
  • Fish is always a great idea, just avoid the fried fish. Order it grilled. Blackened is good also, but watch the salt.
  • Avoid bread. Take it off whatever you order. You can order a burger, but remove the bread.
  • If you have to have a sandwich, order it with whole wheat bread.
  • You can tell your waiter ahead of time to not bring any bread to the table. Avoid the temptation.
  • Ask for drinks without sugar, ie tea
  • Salads are great- but to make them more filling, add plenty of protein.
  • Avoid high fat/high sugar salad dressings. Ask for the vinaigrette dressing. Also ask for dressing on the side, this way you can control how much you eat.
  • If you order a full entrĂ©e for yourself, tell the waiter to go ahead and bring you a doggy bag when he/she brings you your food. Go ahead and put half or so into the doggie bag. Portion control!
  • Always ask your waiter how everything is prepared.
