eating habits when eating out!

Stated below are few habits you could consider adopting when dining out:

Be vigilant about your food choices. Always read the description given on the menu about each dish. Check whether your choice of dish includes elements that are butter-dipped, deep-fried, breaded etc. You should try to avoid such dishes as they are extremely high in calories and sodium. Instead look for dishes that come with the side of vegetables and include leaner cut of animal protein to keep cut down the calories.

Have plenty of water before starting your meal.  In order to reduce your calorie intake and to overindulge have a glass or two of water preferably 15 minutes before your meal. Moreover, if you get thirsty during your meals, stick to water, ice tea or fresh lemonade instead of sipping down carbonated drinks like Pepsi. Carbonated drinks are loaded with sugar and additives which can be extremely detrimental for your health.

Instruct your waiter to lay low on the dressings!  Whether it’s salads, sandwiches, wraps, steaks or pastas, all these items are usually loaded with some kinds of sauces, dressing or are served with heavy dips. Specify to your waiter that you’d like for your dish to have just a little bit of dressing or none at all.  Or if that’s not possible you can always ask them to serve the dressing or sauce on the side and that way you’ll have control over how much you’d like to add.

We all want to get healthier. If you’re not already trying to improve your health, you should be. You only get one life: make it count. No matter who you are, there are some easy ways to get healthier. At Andy Core we want to give you some tips to get healthy and help you put them in action—just check out our site.

It really isn’t much if you think about it, but most of us still don’t do it. One tip for drinking more water is to replace soda and sugary drinks with water. You’ll save money and calories each day! Water from the tap is always free; just be sure to boil it before you drink it. Another tip is to drink water instead of having an unhealthy snack. The water will fill you up without any guilt.

Eat a healthy breakfast. As the saying goes, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Chances are that you don’t eat breakfast, or if you do, you consume something bad for you, like a sugary donut or fatty muffin. A nutritious breakfast is a great way to start your day and keeps you from having those annoying hunger pains so you can focus on your work.

Finally, exercise or exercise more often. You know that you should exercise at least three times a day—but do you actually do it? It can be hard to get motivated to start a workout routine, but it’s one of the best things you can do for your health. Exercise with a friend or reward yourself when you reach a certain workout goal if you need some motivation.
