It’s hard enough making healthy choices when you’re in the comfort of your home and most likely, free of temptations! Then, you add going out with friends or family to your favorite restaurant, and it’s 10 times harder! We will admit we used to struggle big time when it came to eating out! Either we were scared to pick anything that didn’t only involve lettuce, or once we got to the restaurant, we would go town and then go home upset about the damage we had done.
Before, we get into some quick tips on staying on track. We are not in any way condoning having something you enjoy that we all know is far from healthy when dining out! We are FIRM believers in moderation! If you never allow yourself to have something you enjoy eating, you will break one day. You may have a long period of time where you “stick” to your so called “diet,” but one day, you will scream out some choice words (or, say them to yourself), and decide that you can’t deprive yourself anymore! Guess what? That would be 100% normal to do!
