Healthy Dining Out Tips!

Posted on 10 November, 2011 at 10:08













Here are some tips on how to avoid overeating or overconsuming calories when eating out:

  • avoid ordering any dishes that contain cream sauce or cheese, mayonnaise, or are fried, listed as crispy, buttered, creamed, sauteed
  • don't let the waiter/waitress bring bread to the table
  • eat only half the portion- push the other half to the other side of the plate 
  • order the butter, salad dressing, any condiments on the side
  • order a salad before your meal- put the dressing on yourself - order the "greens" salad, NOT the Caesar or anything else with cheese (high in calories and unhealthy fat)
  • Try ordering your food a bit spicy, if this is an option.  It will force you to eat slower, that way you can't overeat!!!

Here's what to choose:
  • broiled, grilled fish or chicken, grilled shrimp, lean meat
  • roasted, poached, broiled, steamed
  • ask for whole wheat versions of breads, rolls
  • order dishes that contain lots of vegetables

For ordering with KIDS:
  • the children's meals tend to be the LEAST healthy
  • order an adult meal and share with your child
  • if veggie/fruit sides are an option, choose them!
  • sometimes it's important to let you child have a treat once in a while and order what they want (which usually tends to be chicken nuggets or hot dog (I know!))  Tell the wait staff to put only a few fries on the plate- not half the plate! 
  • Also order extra sides of fruit cups/veggies

Happy Dining!

Thanks a great deal for sharing this useful information. I was doing a project and for that I was looking for related information. Several of the points are incredibly useful. Do share extra material if you have.
