Eating Out

In general, eating fast foods or restaurant food frequently is not recommended. Foods eaten out provide too many fat and carbohydrate calories in one meal. If you are trying to lose weight, you should avoid fast food in general. In restaurants, try ordering lean meats, vegetables, salads and avoiding pastas, potatoes, bread and desserts. If you eat a large meal, then walk for 30-60 minutes after eating it to prevent blood sugars and insulin levels from rising. If you attend a party, choose appetizers that are fresh raw vegetables. Limit alcohol and sugared drinks. Stick with flavored water or diet drinks.
