Many people who are on a diet try to avoid eating out as much as possible. Why is this so? This is because they think that it is impossible for them to eat healthy when they eat at restaurants. For your information, this should not be the case. Eating out should not be an excuse for you to take a break from eating healthy.
With that in mind, here are some tips on how you can still stick to your diet even when eating out:
#12: Control your portions.
The key to eating healthy when in a restaurant is to control your portions. Make sure that 50% of your plate is filled with vegetables. The remaining 30% can be filled with proteins while the remaining 20% can be starch or carbs. Experts also recommend that you eat only 75% of what’s on your plate.
