[BYWG BLOG] BYWG Top 10 Tips for Dining Out
1 – Eat a snack with protein before you go so that you are not starting at the restaurant.
2 – Order water and sip it before and throughout the meal.
3 – Start with a salad with dressing on the side – choose oil and vinegar over creamy dressings.
4 – Order one or two appetizers instead of an entree or split your entree with someone else.
5 – Choose tomato based sauces over creamy ones.
6 – Avoid all you can eat buffets
7 – Choose dishes with vegetable or sub vegetables for fries.
8 – Save half of your meal for lunch the next day.
9 – Drink coffee or tea for dessert
10 – Read the menu before you go. You might see a meal highlighted as “low-fat,” “gluten-free” or “sugar-free” but these labels don’t necessarily mean a choice is healthy. Added sugars and fats can be hidden in these foods to make them taste better.
