4 Habits and Tricks to Help You Lose Weight at the Restaurants
1. Hit the Mains (right off the bat) - Jump over the starters and you will be avoiding (in most cases) a high calorie punch to the gut. Most of these appetizers are loaded with empty calories (especially the fried ones), so by avoiding them you will be cutting hundreds of calories out of the meal.
3. Divide and Conquer - Split your main dish up into two (just ask your server to do this for you), so you will have one for your meal at hand, and the other to go. Serving sizes these days are bigger than ever, so dividing them will give you a more appropriate serving size.
4. Slow Down - The stomach actually takes a bit of time to initiate a response indicating you are full. However, there is a lag in this response. By speed eating, the signal from your stomach to your brain will be too late and you will actually be too full. Slow down, chew more, chat more and you will find yourself full faster than you usually are.
There you have it, some simple habits and tricks to help you lose weight and move you closer to burning that fat, even when you go out to eat at the restaurants. Apply these on your next restaurant meals and see how eating out at a restaurant doesn't have to hinder your efforts to losing that weight. Enjoy those restaurant meals because you deserve it, but do it in a way that allows you to keep an eye on your goal (and waistline).
