Healthy Eating Tip - Dining Out and Healthy Eating

By: Cori Sachais Swidorsky

Many of us feel that when we are trying to lose weight or justtrying to keep up a healthy eating style, that we need to cutdining out of our lives. Not true! We can enjoy dining out justas much as we did before as long as we know how to do it.

When going to a restaurant, either call ahead to ask some ofthese questions or ask your server if they &bullServe margarineinstead of butter &bullProvide fat free (skim) milk instead ofwhole milk or creamer &bullServe salad dressing on the side &bullCutoff any visible fat from meat or poultry &bullGrant special requests

Make your meal selection based on how the food is prepared. Hereare some healthy choices: &bullSteamed &bullBroiled &bullBaked &bullPoached&bullRoasted &bullGarden Fresh

Try to avoid ordering any appetizers and try not to grab forbread. You can even ask your server to not bother bringing breadto the table. Going out to dinner is usually a treat toourselves, so if you want to splurge a little, have a half apiece of bread or order half of an appetizer to split with theothers you are dining with. Same with desserts, share a dessertand only have one or two tastes.

Don't skip those going out to dinner plans, just make healthierchoices. For more articles on healthy eating to go :http://www.informingwomen.com/Healthy_Eating.html
