Don’t go to restaurant when you are very hungry
I know this sounds a little bit funny. If you are not hungry then why you will go to resturant. Of course, I don’t to mean like this.
You know there is a popular saying don’t go grocery shopping while you are hungry. Well, the same applies to when you eat at outside.
Before you go out, be sure to have a healthy dnack that’s rich in protein or healthy fats such as almond and cashew.
Drink a lot of water
Sometimes we think is hunger, is actually just thirst. Feeling hungry and feeling thirsty have a very similar feeling. The next time before you order a food, drink a glass of water and wait for 12 minutes to check yourself about your hunger.
Keep it small
Some restaurants have larger portion sizes than what you would normally eat at home. Share a large meal with your friend. You don’t have to eat everything on your plate. Eat only half of the plate, eat slowly and keep the conversation going.
Fill your plate with vegetables and fruits
Vegetables and fruits are the great sources of fiber and that keep you full and maintain a blood sugar balance to prevent you from overating.
When you are eating out, ask for a side of vegetables.
Divide up dessert
Desserts are very challenging and I love it so much. I don’t deprieve myself and divide up my dessert.
