Christmas Special: How to select your meal when eating out?
Holla Guys, It’s time for celebrations and vacations for many of us. This post might help you If you are also one of those people who have been invited on a Christmas dinner/ lunch or you are having a great vacation this new year and want to enjoy it without worrying about your calories all the time 𝐇𝐨𝐰 𝐭𝐨 𝐬𝐞𝐥𝐞𝐜𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐦𝐞𝐚𝐥 𝐰𝐡𝐞𝐧 𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐨𝐮𝐭: - Step1: Choose your protein: It’s always a good choice to include a protein source for its satiating nature and completing your protein macros. You are unlikely to eat more by doing this provided you stick to your portion size. Chicken/fish/paneer/tofu are some examples. Sticking with grilled/tandoori options ensures least calories coming from the preparation of outside food. - Step 2: Add some veggies: This is a good way to add more volume to your meal without adding many calories to it. - Step 3: Add more veggies if needed: Yeah because low cal and more food :D - Step 4: A small serving of carbs: We have already devoted a significant meal portion to protein, we would get feel sufficiently full. So we can devote a small portion to carbs to make it tastier. Steamed rice, baked potato are some examples - Step 5: Combine it with a zero/low cal beverage: For some more happiness :D - Step 6: Roughly track what you have eaten post your meal: This step is important. You can either make small adjustments in the same day or next day if needed. Merry Christmas Everyone! :)
