Dining at a restaurant can be daunting. However, keep in mind that options vary depending
on the type of restaurant and cuisine you are eating.
First, do not be tempted by specials or the pictures in the menu. Most of these are entrees with large portions and more likely to have a high fat
and/or caloric content. So, try to share an entrée and add a side veg and a salad.Always remember that the picture usually looks
better than the actual food. If you are really interested in the
special, see if you can have the server bring a to-go box so you can
portion your meal prior to eating eat.
Let's face it;everyone enjoys the sweet taste and smooth texture of chocolate. Whether you're the kind of chocolate lover that craves a rich, creamy piece of cake after a meal or the kind who reaches for a candy bar at the convenience store, we all love chocolate. Sadly, we also seem to have that love-hate relationship with chocolate. We love to enjoy that delicious bite of chocolaty goodness, but we hate to think about how our waistlines will pay for it later.
It's time to forget feeling guilty about satisfying those chocolate cravings and start enjoying great tasting foods that you enjoy.
Overcome Emotional Eating, stop binging and lose weight
Depression, boredom, chronic anger, anxiety, stress, and poor self-esteem can result in overeating and unwanted weight gain. Experts estimate that 75% of overeating is caused by emotions. As a result, eating becomes the detrimental way that people self-medicate to deal with their emotions. Rather than turn to positive outlets to help deal with stress, people turn to food.
High levels of stress or other emotions can cause people to long for food, particularly; fattening, comforting foods, when emotions spike or plummet.
