How to Eat Healthy When Dining Out

So, you are on a diet, and your friends have made plans to try out the new restaurant in town. Of course, you would love to join them but you do not want to cheat on your diet either. This is a problem most people face, especially on the weekends. Many of us are guilty of overindulging during the weekends, thus negating all the progress achieved in the last five days. Follow the below-mentioned rules when dining out and you will never feel bad about heading to your favorite Indian, Chinese, Italian, or Mexican restaurant for a meal. 

Indian

diet

Choose grilled food like tandoori vegetables, chicken or fish.

Opt for a whole-wheat roti instead of the maida one.

Skip the makhani-based gravies.

Try and avoid ordering rice dishes like biryani, especially if you are eating Indian food for dinner. 

Papads and pickles should be avoided, too. 

Chinese

diet

Choose anything that’s steamed instead of fried.

Begin your meal with a soup, so that you eat less later.

Avoid dishes made with soy sauce as it has high sodium content. 

Fill yourself up with the starters, and skip the main course dishes like fried rice and noodles.

Italian

diet

An Aglio e Olio preparation of pasta is the healthiest.

Say 'No' to white-sauce pasta as it is full of cream and cheese.

Have a pizza with a whole-wheat base, and choose vegetables and/or grilled chicken as the toppings.

Adding bacon to your pizza may make it delicious but will also add a huge amount fat to the dish.

Mexican

diet

Have nachos with salsa instead of cheese sauce. 

A burrito bowl has fewer calories than a burrito. 

Pick a salad that has avocados, tomatoes, and other veggies.
