One can’t ignore the fact that the scrumptious meals that are available in restaurants are loaded with high calories and high fats compared to what we prepare at home. For this, accuse huge amounts or hidden extras of oil and butter or tempting and calorie-enriched deserts. However, I know some handy tips from which you can relish restaurant’s food as well as stay hale and hearty.

Learn some cool tips for eating outside food without falling in the hidden traps of calories or without going overboard.


  1. Consider colors: Remember the basic point that before you order anything, think carefully in your mind, what should your plate look like when it arrives out of kitchen? How many colors do you want lying in your plate? If you don’t wish to have more than two colors than start reconsideration, as the dish that would finally be prepared would be very simple like roasted mushrooms and tomatoes.
  2. Grab one indulgence per meal: If you really can’t resist the lip-smacking nachos or the fruity cocktail, then go ahead and grab one, only one… no overindulgence. But remember that now you have to leave behind desert.
  3. Add flavoring on the sides: I know, you have heard it before, but do you really know that ordering extra flavoring with cheese, mayo, pesto sauce, sour cream just on the side and sprinkling can really make a huge difference. For instance: half cup pesto sauce contains about 600 calories and toppings of just two tablespoons will add more 150 calories to your diet.
  4. Scale down: A research result published in the journal ‘Obesity,’ suggested that restaurant dishes serve 4 to 5 larger amounts than they actually should be. So in case, you do not share an entrée, leave 5 to 10 bites.
  5. Look for red flags: Keep your senses vigilant for catching the words that connote high-fats or high-calories. Like, you might be aware of listings like buttered, fried, cream sauce etc.
