Avoid overeating and keep your new lifestyle in balance by planning ahead before dining out to ensure that you and your family are eating healthy. Eating healthy is a challenge when eating out but it doesn’t have to be.
Planning ahead by deciding where to eat and what to eat before going out will help you make better options and eat healthy! Most restaurants, both large chains and local restaurants, have a website with a complete menu and often nutritional content as well. Before dining out, visit the restaurant website to decide what to order before going.
Quick Dining Out Tips
- Be aware of hidden high calories and high fat add-ons and make healthy substitutions to make your dining choices healthier.
- Share a meal - Most meals have more than twice the amount of calories you need for a meal. Adopt a new rule to always share your meal with a friend.
- Best advice - Prepare a healthy lunch from home and visit restaurants only on special occasion.
