Eat Healthy at Restaurants

Going out to restaurants is one of everyone’s preferred things! However many people feel that they should not eat out while dieting. It can be a huge obstacle when dieting. Our culture is big on eating out for a number of reasons. We may need to for work, to celebrate holidays and birthdays, for pleasure, and convenience. It is a big part of our lives. This can be a scary thing for someone attempting to diet!t is one of the biggest reasons that people fall off of their dieting wagon. It doesn’t have to be that way. You can make better selections when dining out, and still have a wonderful time.

Many great diet plans are available to assist you. I have discovered that Fat Loss 4 Idiots is the easiest one to grasp. You can have your menus designed for you, and you even get to “cheat” for 3 days. So, you can go out and enjoy a treat at a restaurant of your choosing!

Menu Plans Done for You

When you are eating out at a restaurant, you may find these guidelines useful:

Do not consume these:

 *deep fried foods (anything battered and that goes into a bath of Trans fat oil)

 *refined starchy foods (potatoes, rice, etc.)

 *any juices, soda, or other sugary foods (whole fruit is great)

 

Tell your waiter to leave the bread basket in the kitchen. Ask for water with fresh lemon in it to sip on while you wait for your food. You will find that most of the time, French fries, pasta or rice is included with your meal. Ask for veggies or fruit instead. Substitutions are usual at many restaurants these days, due to health issues, and restaurants are usually very accommodating. If they won’t, go to another restaurant.

Be aware that many people aren’t going to be very supportive when you are eating out. These folks are typically your friends and family, but could be business associates as well.They may not mean to, but they will disrupt your dieting attempts, if you let them. Comments such as “Just this once, cheat and have some”, or “live it up a bit”. These are typically the same people who claim to have “tried everything”, and “nothing works”. They have stopped trying and remain obese, and they need you to join them. They need a new hobby if they think that consuming foods that are unhealthy for you is “living’. Tell them to go rent the movie “Super Size Me”, and see if they change their mind.

Here are samples of substitutions that will help you make healthier choices:

Most folks will consume this:

Burger or sandwich

Chips or fries

Soda or other sweetened drink

 

A better option would be:

Burger or sandwich (you can even ask for no bun, and have it wrapped in lettuce)

Salad or veggies

Ice tea or water.

 

This will spare you a minimum of 400-900 calories every time you dine out. These healthful selections also reduce the harmful foods most people may choose (Trans fat and high fructose corn syrup).

So, you can still dine out, and delight in all the fun! You will continue to lose weight, and not feel deprived. Don’t feel quilty-go to your favorite restaurant!
