.Whether you’re trying to loose weight or simply want to keep a watch on your diet,there is no reason not to go out and eat.When you are planning to loose weight you don’t need to eat boiled food or eat at home all the time.Here are some points that you can keep in mind while eating out and still find out something healthy.


Eversince I started to keep a check on my health and my food a few months ago and trying my best to eat healthier I’ve learnt some tips on what to do while eating out.

Maintaining-a-Healthy-Body-Weight
1.First and foremost,the most important thing to keep in mind while going out to a restaurant is DON’T EVER ,EVER go to a restaurant starving.Always,always keep this thing in mind.At times I keep a control on my diet all day means I eat two brown bread toasts and a bowl of sprouts in breakfast and 1 bowl daal and 1 chapati in the afternoon and go out for a dinner to a restaurant and as I have barely eaten anything at home I tend to order a lot seeing the lip smacking menu and end up ruining my entire diet plan and a week of exercising.So whenever you decide to go for lunch or dinner outside always have a small snack beforehand like a sprout bowl or a bowl of curd with a dressing.


2.As a beverage choice,always ask for WATER or order drinks without added sugar like a salty fresh lime or coconut water.Never order sodas or canned juices,they are loaded with artificial sugar.


3.If you are eating grilled sandwiches always order for whole wheat flour bread.

4.In a restaurant start your meal with a salad packed with veggies,to help control hunger and feel satisfied.

5.Remember don’t snack on complimentary items before your meals arrive.Don’t hog up complimentary peanuts or French fries before your meals arrive.

7.Everything starts with the place you eat at,so always be cautious and smart about picking your restaurant.Choose a place that offers healthy menu options-that way you can enjoy yourself without becoming scared of packing on tons of calories.Search on the net for healthy,organic,vegan or even vegetarian places.

8.Do not be shy and hesitant to speak up and make special requests,for eg.if you want something removed from your meal,also you can ask your food to be cooked without butter,speak up.Don’t be shy.Remove creamy mayo or creamy dressings from your food.
