How To Eat Out And Still Lose Belly Fat
n order to reduce belly fat, most people would tend to avoid the good things in life, but where is the fun in that? Here is how to eat out and successfully reduce belly fat.
There is no need to give up eating out, by making the right choices you can still enjoy the good life and lose weight.
Drink water to reduce belly fat
Not only is water great for your skin, but its zero calories and helps you to fill up before your main course arrives. If you find water boring, ask for a twist of lemon or okinawa flat belly tonic lime, or try soda or tonic water. If you’re serious about reducing belly fat, you will always drink around 2 liters of water a day.
Don’t drink alcohol
Alcohol is laden with empty calories and sugar. A single glass of red wine has over 100 calories – 3 glasses is more than enough to send your diet over the edge. Stick to water. Alcohol has a way of ruining your motivation to reduce body fat, and you’ll end up consuming more calories than you wanted to at the beginning of the night.
Order entrée size for your main
Most restaurants will allow you to choose the smaller (and cheaper) entrée size for your main course. Most main courses are far more food than one person needs to eat. Better yet, share a salad for an entrée and have an entrée sized main. This way you can save calories and reduce belly fat.
Have tomato base sauce instead of cream
At a restaurant, you’re the customer… and the customer is (almost) always right! If you’ve chosen Italian, pick a pasta that has a tomato base instead of a cream one. This will half the fat content of the meal, and help with your goal of reducing belly fat. If it doesn’t exist on the menu, ask if they can make it for you. If they can’t, then their food isn’t fresh so it would be wise to pick another restaurant.
Eat before you go
Choosing your meal when you are ravenous is a recipe for disaster. Have a snack or salad before you go out and make the choices that will help you to reduce belly fat.
