Foodies Guide – Sixteen Tips For Restaurant Eating



Most of us eat at restaurants for a variety of reasons; time and convenience are the most common motives. So if you plan to eat out in the near future, take note of these sixteen quick tips.
Refrain from overeating and eat only what you could, and eat healthy if you wish to live a long and full life.
When portioning your food, spacing is a matter of great importance. Water should be a part of every meal.
After you eat, your stomach should be half full, or less, with food. Portion your meals in such a way – two parts food, one part water. Allow at least one quarter free space in your stomach so air can move around freely.
Wait five to ten minutes in between courses, and eat no more than half a portion at a restaurant. Restaurant portions are commonly two to four meals on a single or double plate.
We’re talking two to four meals, which is a significant amount of food to eat in a course of a meal – when the time comes for you to drink water, chances are you would have had more than enough.
In the Providence, RI area, there are some restaurants where the single portions could feed a family of four. No wonder a man of 200 lbs. is now considered thin. Do not make comparisons to other people. Eat to live and enjoy your food, but do not use someone else’s over indulgence as an excuse for your own.
Control your appetite to the best of your capacity. Most of us feel guilty if we don’t finish a plate. Her intentions were good, but don’t feel guilty if you can’t finish your entire meal. It’s easy to have your leftovers “to go” in such an event.
Some meals can be skipped in extenuating circumstances, but never breakfast. When you skip breakfast, you will over-consume for it, later in the day.
Eat slowly and thoroughly chew your food.
Make sure your last meal, or last “snack” of the day, is small and nutritionally dense. Everybody seems to be going veggie these days, so some great ideas include vegetable salad with balsamic vinegar and olive oil to taste, light popcorn (make sure it is light) or a simple bowl of cereal with fruit. For those who still have meat in their diets, turkey, chicken and salmon can be eaten in tandem with a fresh green salad.
In the later part of your day, skip desserts, sugary cereals, bread, and second portions.
If you have a craving for something sweet, then there are some neat ways to avoid the sugar – fruit and nut can be eaten with so many things, including low fat cottage cheese and yogurt.
Coffee and alcohol should normally be avoided, but hey, we’re only human and we can have these two in moderation – extreme moderation. You may need to drink more water than usual to compensate for the dehydration brought about by these drinks. You may lose the Johnnie Walker or Jack Daniel’s bottle in your cabinet and opt for wine instead, which is healthier – still, two glasses max is recommended for wine.
