Fast Food and Restaurants

In today’s world, eating out is a frequent activity. It is faster and easier for us. But the truth is - eating at home is usually a much better choice. Research shows that we consume more calories, fat, and sodium and less nutritious foods when we eat out instead of at home. We have more control over what goes into our food when we are in our own kitchen. Portion sizes are usually larger away from home too. Try to limit yourself to eating out no more than 2 times each week.

That said, when you do eat out, it doesn’t have to be a health disaster. Whether you are eating at your favorite restaurant or grabbing a quick meal at the local fast food place, you can still eat well away from home.

We've provided fast food dining tips and advice for dining at other restaurants.
