Genius πŸ’‘ Tips for Eating Healthy πŸ₯— when Eating out 🍽 ...


Eating out when counting calories can be a grenade thrown into your well-conceived healthy eating plan. There are ways of negotiating the minefield without jeopardising all your hard work.

The first thing to remember is to not forget all the rules you have been practising since you started your calorie counting diet. The same principles apply wherever you are having a meal. Restaurants and eateries have also become very consumer-savvy and many are aware that potential customers may not be satisfied by what the chef wants them to eat. Many places now offer low fat or calorie counted meals as a standard offering on their menus. If you are going to a dinner party and you know your host, there’s no reason why you can’t let them know you are following a diet plan. So much better that they know rather than be offended by your refusal to eat what they have prepared. A good host and friend will no doubt cater to your needs.

If you follow these tips for healthy eating at restaurants and you'll still be able to have a great night out.

1. Watch the Alcohol

Alcohol has the potential to upset any dietary regime. At about 200 calories per average measure, it’s a huge inroad into your calorie allowance. If you want a drink the avoid spirits but if you must have one, make it long with plenty of low calorie mixer. Make it last. If you have wine, drink it as a spritzer. Sip your alcoholic tipple alongside plenty of nice cold water. Alcohol can also stimulate your appetite so drink with your meal rather than before it.
