For many people, eating out is a way to relax and socialize. But if you are watching your weight or just are concerned with healthy eating, dining out can be a challenge. The good news is that usually there are healthier options at every restaurant, even at fast-food places. By following some simple guidelines, you can enjoy eating out and still have a healthy diet.
Follow the same guidelines when you eat out that you would if you were eating at home. This doesn't mean that you have to give up ordering dessert. But you may want to order it less often and share it with someone else at your table.
