Yes, you are still able to enjoy your favorite restaurants and outings with your friends and family even if you are on a weight loss journey. Here are some ways to keep yourself on track!
Look at the Restaurant Menu Ahead of Time
If you know where you are going, this gives you time to find something that fits into your routine or create a meal combination that’s more nutritious.
Try Not to Go Out Starving
Eating something more nutritionally dense ahead of time will help you in keeping your portions in check at the restaurant.
Ask for a to-go Box as Soon as You Order Your Meal
We all know portions are quite large at restaurants, therefore, if you can put half or some of it away when you receive your meal, you won’t be as tempted to clear your plate!
Share a Meal with Someone
If you can find someone who likes what you enjoy, take advantage and split a meal. You’ll save money AND keep your portions in check!
Avoid Fried Foods
Fried foods tend to be the highest in fat and calories due to the oil and breading that it is often coated in, try to find options that are grilled, broiled, baked, or boiled!
Take Your Time and ENJOY Your Food
Try to finish your meal in no less than 20 minutes. Pay attention to all the flavors and enjoy every bite!
