4 Tips for Maintaining a Healthy Diet When You Eat Out, Manhattan, New York

Dieting can be demanding. It’s hard enough to exercise self-control and fight cravings at home or the office, but it’s even more challenging when eating out. Fortunately, you don’t have to throw your hard work away for a restaurant meal. Buffalo Wild Wings, based in Connecticut and Ohio, is one of the area’s most popular sports bars. Below, they share four helpful tips on sticking to your diet while eating at a restaurant. 

How to Eat Healthy at a Sports Bar or Restaurant 

1. Skip Appetizers 

It’s easy to fill up on appetizers before your meal without thinking. Avoid the temptation by skipping these altogether. If you must get an appetizer, choose something light like veggies with hummus or a fruit platter. Steer clear of chips and bread products. 

2. Don’t Drink Your Calories 

While it’s OK to imbibe alcohol or enjoy a sweet beverage every once in a while, these calories can quickly add up when you’re out. In fact, some cocktails and fancy coffee drinks can have up to 500 calories per serving. Not only are they high in calories, but they won’t help you feel full, so you’ll still be hungry afterward, resulting in excess calorie intake. Instead, order water or tea or coffee with no or little sweetener. If you want to drink alcoholic beverages, order something simple with low calories, such as a glass of wine, a dry martini, or straight whiskey. 

3. Load Up on Vegetables

Fiber takes a while to digest, which is one reason it’s an essential nutrient for dieters. You’ll feel full for longer and stave off cravings. Try veggie platters with carrot and celery sticks, broccoli, peppers, and cucumbers. Salads are also an excellent option. Be cautious of condiments. Ask for dressing on the side. 

4. Choose Good Protein 

Pick a healthy protein source. Proteins are a staple of any meal, whether it’s in the form of chicken, beef or fish, or a vegetarian source such as beans, tofu, or tempeh. Whatever your protein, choose something grilled or baked instead of fried. Also, avoid high-fat meats. Protein, like fiber, can help you to feel full for longer. It’s also elemental in building lean muscle mass. 

If you’re mindful of what’s on your plate, there’s no reason you can’t enjoy a lunch date or night at the sports bar with friends while still sticking to your diet. If you’re in the Connecticut or Ohio area, stop in to the area’s favorite sports bar, Buffalo Wild Wings, and sample some of their tasty, healthy sides, such as jalapeno peppers, carrot and celery boat, or side salad.
