DIET and NUTRITION

Eat Out Eat Right serves as a nutrition resource so that you can maintain a healthy diet while eating out. Whether you find yourself eating out one in a while or more often than you’d like, you can make healthy choices with this guide.

Eat Out Eat Right is only a guide, so it does not include a formal eating plan. There are recommendations given on which foods are better than others so that you can save on calories while also enjoying the experience of dining out.

The book is divided into chapters that take on particular eating-out issues. Included are chapters on eating out with children, fast-food eating and how to eat healthy at breakfast, bagel spots, and soup and sandwich venues. In addition, there are specific chapters devoted to ethnic cuisines such as Mexican, Thai, Italian, Japanese, Middle Eastern and more.

Each menu item that is listed contains its calories, fat grams including saturated and trans fat grams, sodium and carbohydrates. Serving sizes are listed in ounces so the reader will need to decipher between the portion size that is served to them and what they need to eat in order to stay within the calorie ranges suggested in the book.

EXERCISE

There are no exercise information or fitness recommendations provided.

CONCLUSION

For those that love to eat out, or just find that they eat out more than they should, Eat Out Eat Right provides help with making better choices. Just because you eat out doesn’t mean you have to eat the high fat and unhealthy meals. This book will provide you with a better chance of making the healthiest choices while you also enjoy the experience of dining out. Just make sure that you have a good knowledge of portion sizes and stick to the portions outlined in the book rather than what you are served.
