Well U: Eating Out
Transcript of Well U: Eating Out
Ways to eat out in healthy way
Get a water at restaurant instead of a soda
Ask to have your food not cooked in oil or butter
Choose a salad or veggies as your side
Get the smaller size
Take half home to eat later
Avoid free bread/fries
After eating a large meal at restaurants I ALWAYS experience the "Food Coma." I end up regretting what I ate, once I fall asleep and don't wake up until 4 hours later....
After you eat foods high on the glycemic index (Fast absorbing carbohydrates, Ex: White Bread, Sugary cereal, potatoes, white rice.) your body switches its hormones to conserve more energy, which is noticed as sleepiness.
To avoid the Food Coma go on a 15 minute walk after your feast
For example if you eat a large meat lovers pizza from Pizza hut it's almost 4,000 calories..... (Yes, I have been guilty of this.)
Cheeseburger (300 calories)+Medium Coke (200 calories)+ Medium Fries (380 calories) = 880 calories for 1 meal!
All excess calories end up being stored as fat.
Ways to prevent eating out
Prepare meals yourself and/or with friends
This will save you money and calories
Limit yourself to eating out one or two times per week
Drink a lot of water when you get the urge to fill your stomach.
Go for dessert after a home cooked meal
Learn to cook for favorite restaurant dish
Stock up on fast easy meals
What are the obstacles you face when deciding what to eat?
Most restaurants DO have nutrition facts available to you. (Most are online)
This makes it easier to gauge your calorie intake and make adjustments
Even the dining halls on campus have nutrition facts available for everything they serve.
It is something you have to look for, most of the time it is not in plain sight. (especially if its unhealthy)
Focus on this too!
Every day ¼ of the adult U.S. population visits a fast food restaurant
Americans purchase an average of 3 fast food hamburgers each week
Americans eat 49 lbs of potatoes per year. Of this, 30 lbs are in the form of frozen French fries, 90% from fast food restaurants. We buy an average of 4 orders of fries each week.
Only 52% of food purchased is for home consumption
U.S. adults purchase a restaurant snack or meal 5.8 times per week.
