A healthy diet is essential to a healthy life. And when you eat out at a restaurant, it can be tempting to break your diet. Eating out consistently can have serious negative effects on your body if you aren’t careful. Here are some helpful tips for healthy eating at restaurants when you do go!
Did you know just one can of soda has 39 grams of sugar? Lemonade typically has 25 grams of sugar as well. And if you’re thirsty, you might be asking for refills, too. Your body does not need that much sugar, and neither do your teeth! Instead of ordering sugary sodas and juices, ask for water. Not only will this save your body from unnecessary sugar, but it will also help you hydrate and digest better. Keep in mind, water is free as well so you’ll be helping out your wallet!
Asking to double, or even triple, your veggies is a great way to fill up without eating junk, and stick to your goal of healthy eating at restaurants! Doing so could even save you from feeling the need to order dessert! Plus, veggies are great for your body because they include vitamin A, vitamin C, dietary fiber, and potassium.
If you feel full, stop eating! Overeating is one of the most common ways people gain weight. Don’t feel badly about boxing up your leftovers and taking them home. Doing so will also give you a tasty lunch for tomorrow, without having to eat out again.
