[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.
