The SlimLife way to eat out

Eat something healthy before going out so you will not be tempted to eat more when at the restaurant.

  1. Read the menu carefully to judge the least fatty foods to eat.
  2. Choose clear soups instead of creamy ones. They are nutritious and less fattening.
  3. Green salads and veggies with low fat dressings are deliciously refreshing and contain lesser fat.
  4. Lemon juice, salt, pepper and vinegar are great low fat dressings.
  5. Avoid potato and macaroni salads as they are high in calories.
  6. Choose grilled, steamed or poached foods over those with rich creamy gravy/sauces.
  7. Choose tandoori roti, romali roti or missi roti over breads with high butter content. If you take breads try spreading olive oil as it will reduce the glycemic index of the bread.
  8. Grilled food like tandoori chicken, baked fish and pasta with tomato sauce and paneer tikka make great entrees. Try to avoid meat consumption during dinner.
  9. Specify that you would prefer as little use of butter and oil in your dishes.
  10. Choose fresh fruit or frozen yoghurt or any sugar free desserts. Don’t forget to check for the fat and carbohydrate content on the label.
  11. While travelling, preplan meals and snacks to reduce stress and to keep your energy high.
  12. Take along mineral water, iced tea, vegetable juice and some low fat snacks like whole wheat sandwiches, salad and fresh fruits.
