Eating Out Over The Weekend? You No Longer Need To Worry About Those Additional Calories

Eating Out Over The Weekend? You No Longer Need To Worry About Those Additional Calories

  

Skip the free bread basket: If you have to munch on something while you wait for your order, ask for a plate of raw vegetables or some breadsticks.

Ask for an extra serving of vegetables on the side: No, not the usual garnish like vegetables. When ordering, ask for three to four times the normal serving of veggies, and offer to pay extra.

Skip the fancy drinks: If you are in the mood for an alcoholic drink, keep the margaritas and pina coladas aside. They include sugary additions that only add calories. Opt for a glass of wine instead or for a light beer instead.

Always opt for sauteed or steamed over batter-fried and deep-fried bites: Scan the menu well, and go in for the stir fried or steamed variety at all times. For instance, dumplings over wantons, stir fried chicken over a greasy Kung Pao chicken.

Choose white over red meats: Chicken is a great option when you are dining out. Keep the lamb for another day.
