Hey, I’m Keri Glassman here with some quick
and simple tips to help you feel just a little bit better. It’s happened to all of us.
You’re cruising along, eating the right amounts of the right foods, the picture of
health. And then comes the restaurant invite. Your friends are all going out, and it’s
definitely not a place known for its healthy options. How are you supposed to stick to
your nutrition plan in this den of temptation? Beer, fried appetizers, huge portions. First,
calm down. You’re allowed to indulge occasionally as long as you indulge carefully and get right
back on track. Find the healthiest option for the food you’re craving when you are out.
Get the pasta in the tomato sauce versus the creams sauce. Second, make sure everything
else you order is the healthiest choice, such as the side salad. And portion control is
your friend. Share a meal, rather than having the whole thing. No one wants to share? No
prob. Order an appetizer as an entrée. Or ask for a to-go box with your meal so you
can save the leftovers before you even start chowing down. You can even have the restaurant
divide your meal in half and bring you part on a plate and part in a bag. So remember:
A night out doesn’t have to derail your eating habits. Make conscious indulgences
and control portions. You’ll come home feeling just a little bit better.
