Dining out dilemmas: We’ve all faced them, and in this episode, we’re tackling the challenges of making healthier choices when eating at restaurants. From planning ahead to avoiding under-eating throughout the day, we’re sharing our tips for navigating the restaurant scene without sacrificing your health goals.
Introducing our “One or Two of Four No More” strategy, we discuss how selecting just one or two items from bread, booze, dinner carbs, and dessert can keep your meal in check while still allowing for some flexibility. Plus, we’re spilling the beans on how apple cider vinegar (ACV) or our berberine supplement (BFF) can help with blood sugar spikes, and how N-acetylcysteine (NAC) can support your liver in processing alcohol, potentially reducing those dreaded hangover symptoms.
But wait, there’s more! We’re also chatting about “veggie foreplay” – eating your vegetables before diving into those carbs to help moderate blood sugar levels. And, we’re not stopping there. We’re shedding light on the sneaky presence of inflammatory oils in restaurant food, the benefits of asking about cooking methods, and the undeniable advantages of home-cooked meals for both health and cost-effectiveness.
Wrapping up with a listener question about starters at restaurants, we suggest that opting for a healthy choice like a salad might be a better option than skipping a starter altogether and caving in to carb cravings later on. Stay tuned for our next episode, where we’ll dive even deeper into specific cuisines and menu choices for healthier dining-out experiences.
