When trying to eat healthy to stay in shape, finding yourself out at a restaurant can present the biggest challenge. For good reason, the main emphasis behind their preparations is the taste, and the health of the food may be a secondary consideration. While many of their meals are unhealthy, it is possible to stay on the road to better health when eating out. There is an excellent article in the New York Times about how to do this.
The first bit of good news is that people are more health conscious today and restaurants have been paying attention. Foodies like Mark Ahn are excited to know that even McDonald’s is experimenting with adding the health food Kale to some of their salads. When such targets of all that is bad about fast food are starting to make improvements, that is worth taking note. However, it is easy to pack on calories at regular restaurants that don’t have an unhealthy reputation. One trick is not to eat the entire portion served to you. You may also just try ordering two appetizers, and you’ll find that it will add up to a filling meal without being as big a serving as the actual meals served at most restaurants. One trick to enable you to eat more that you like is to knock out the sugary beverage in favor of water or club soda. This lets you indulge a little more on the food without straying off the path to a healthier future.
