Eating Out Healthy Style



We all love to eat out, though eating out and eating healthy don't always go hand in hand. However, you can still eat out and eat healthy you just have to be smart about it. There are many tips that you can use when it comes to eating out healthy style and it can all be done with very little sacrifice.




For Example:
  • Start your meal with a salad packed with veggies, to help control hunger and feel satisfied sooner.


  • Order an appetizer or side dish instead of an entrĂ©e.


  • When your food is delivered, set aside or pack half of it to go immediately, better yet ask the server to package half of your meal before it is brought to the table.


  • Resign from the “clean your plate club” – when you have eaten enough, leave the rest.


  • Request that the bread basket not be refiled or skip it all together especially if the bread is not whole grain.


  • Avoid buffets, and all-you-can-eat specials.
