Because of its high fat, salt, and sugar content, restaurant food tastes better. Thus, eating out is linked to overeating and poor diets. The traditional wisdom is to avoid dining out when dieting.
It's much harder to overeat protein as opposed to carbs. High protein options tend to generally be healthier and will help you feel full.
The macros and calories may be off, but you know a range. Many burgers include over 1000 calories without our knowledge.Choose calorie-counted choices wherever feasible.
Some restaurants provide large servings to seem cost-effective, but we occasionally eat it because it's on our plate. Eat what you need and store the leftovers for another supper or share.
Veggies are super reliable cuz they're high in fibre (helps you feel full and satiated) and low cal. Always get a veggie-packed dish with your meal.
