Restaurant Health Hacks

Posted on

Are your restaurant choices throwing you off the health wagon? Eating out doesn’t have to break your nutrition goals, as long as you’re equipped with some strong willpower, pre-decided boundaries, and you’re willing to lose the FOMO (fear of missing out).

  1. Have you already “cheated” this week? If you’re indulging more than three times a week, you’re going to have trouble progressing with weight-loss goals. Decide what kinds of compromises you’re willing to make, for example; people on a low-carb plan might “cheat” with some rice, but decide not to go all the way to fries-town.

  2. Custom build your meal – if that’s appropriate for the restaurant. Prioritize lean proteins, and always add something fresh. Brunch is a breeze, with a veggie omelette! You can add meat if you like, but by ordering the veggie version, you’re packing in extra health. Cut the hash or home fries, and add a salad. You’ll be jealous of other plates at the time, but thankful when you’re not sluggish later on.

  3. Limit sugar – don’t drink your calories! Save your calorie budget for the awesome food you’re about to devour, rather than blowing them on a soda. If you’re wanting some dessert, factor it in, by reducing the calories of your main meal. It’s not about deprivation, it’s about balance!
