    If you choose to go to an unhealthy restaurant, you can still choose to make healthy decisions. It’s easier than you think to make good choices at a fast-food restaurant, the mall, or even the school cafeteria. Most cafeterias and fast-food places offer healthy choices that are also tasty, like grilled chicken or salads. Be mindful of portion sizes and high fat add-ons, like dressings, sauces or cheese.

    Here are some pointers to remember that can help you make wise choices when eating out:
    1) Go for balance. Choose meals that contain a balance of lean proteins (like fish, chicken, or beans if you’re a vegetarian), fruits and vegetables (fries and potato chips don’t qualify as veggies!), and whole grains (like whole-wheat bread and brown rice). That’s why a turkey sandwich on whole wheat with lettuce and tomato is a better choice than a cheeseburger on a white bun.
    2) Watch portion sizes. The portion sizes of American foods have increased over the past few decades so that we are now eating way more than we need. The average size of a hamburger in the 1950s was just 1.5 ounces, compared with today’s hamburgers, which weigh in at 8 ounces or more.
    30 Drink water or low-fat milk. Regular sodas, juices, and energy drinks usually contain “empty” calories that you don’t need — not to mention other stuff, like caffeine.

    Here are some tips for Eating at the Mall or Fast-Food Place:
    -a single slice of veggie pizza
    -grilled, not fried, sandwiches (for example, a grilled chicken breast sandwich)
    -deli sandwiches on whole-grain bread
    -a small hamburger
    -a bean burrito
    -a baked potato
    -a side salad
    -frozen yogurt
    Choose the smaller sizes, especially when it comes to drinks and snacks. If you have a craving for something unhealthy, try sharing the food you crave with a friend.

    Finally, don’t put off eating until you’re so hungry you could inhale everything in sight. Set a time to eat, then stop what you’re doing to take a break, sit down, and savor the food you are eating.
