Eating Out and Weight Loss Are Compatible

8/19 9:56:21

Although some people believe that eating out is contraindicative for weight loss, this does not necessarily have to be true. It is quite possible to eat out and still stick to your weight loss plan. It is all just a matter of taking he middle road and eating sensibly.

For instance, when you are eating in a restaurant, you can easily choose the smallest portion. Eating past the point of hunger is not the way to go about things. If a ladies steak is available, choose that with a salad and not the man sized steak with a rich sauce and fries on the side.

Consuming more calories than our bodies require is one of the biggest contributors to weight gain. However if you are still hungry once you have consumed what you ordered, you are always able to order another small dish. This offers you the opportunity to taste a greater variety of dishes and make the eating out process more enjoyable.

Make yourself the designated driver and in this way you get to steer clear of alcohol which is very fattening and just adds to your calorific intake. Drinking alcohol can let your guard down and may tend to make you over eat. Also, if you drink a glass of water about 10 to 15 minutes before you eat, you will feel fuller, as it partially fills your stomach. Sometimes hunger is actually dehydration which is a trick that our body plays on us to get us to drink, so the water will also do you good.

Most restaurants know that people are concerned about watching their weight these days, they have lighter options available on the menu, and you should never be afraid to ask for what you want. If you want your steak grilled with no barbeque sauce, ask for it. If you want steamed vegetables instead of salad, ask for it. If the restaurant is worth its salt and wants to get your business again, they will make the additional effort, not to give you a huge portion of generic menu food.Be sure to check with your doctor before changing your level of exercise or diet.
