Diet Balancing after Eating Out.


Posted by Swati S.

I enjoy eating out occasionally, and of course, it does lead to some extra calories. Instead of having guilt pangs about it, a better way is to balance the eating-out in the next meal. For example, when I have pizza, I make sure I get a big portion of vegetables in the next meal and a bit of skin-less chicken. Similarly, if I have eaten a good amount of dessert, then I completely skip the sweet part in the next few meals.

Yes, it is good to balance. If you know you are going to have dessert, maybe skip the bread. Did you have a rich potato soup? Maybe coffee with Splenda should round out your meal. Rich dressing on a salad? Make the entree light. This is not just good dieting strategy, it is also the gourmet's plan for a variety of food experiences. Creamy should be balanced by stringent. Heavy needs light. Hot need cold. Syrupy needs crunchy. So, don't think of it as deprivation, think of yourself as a true gourmet!
A true gourmet -hmmnnnnn- when you put it like that- it definitely makes it sound cool. Good choice of words!
