Losing weight tends to pose a considerable challenge to those of us who have a lifestyle which involves frequent visits to restaurants.Dining out has gone from being a rarity to almost becoming a twice weekly norm for a huge number of people.And when we are not eating out, we're calling up for a take-away and serving up food which frequently tends to be greater in both fatty content and portion size.
Losing weight becomes more difficult when your lifestyle is such that you eat in this way.Restaurant portion sizes tend to be bigger. Not only that they tend to have more accompaniments, like warm bread rolls and butter, creamy sauces, appetizers and desserts, not to mention the alcohol which you are more likely to partake in as well.Thus there are three very big reasons why eating out makes it more difficult for you to lose weight:
Larger quantities = more calories
Fattier foods = more calories
Adding alcohol into the mix = more calories
You cannot get away from the fact that if you want to lose weight, you have to consume fewer calories or burn more of calories or do both.If you want to lose weight successfully you are therefore presented with a pretty straight forward choice; you could change your lifestyle and eat out less, and order less meals to take out too.Or you can learn new ways in which to deal with this matter of dining out.
Most restaurants these days give the dieter a really good helping hand.Many of them draw your attention to their healthier options, or are more than happy to lower the fat content or provide small portions.I have always said that if you eat out a lot it should in fact be easier to lose weight; all you have to do is to learn to ask for the amount and types of food which is good for you. You don't have to buy the food or cook it.All you have to do is order your meal and eat it!Surely that should make losing weight a whole lot easier?
But this doesn't seem to be the case.More and more people are putting on weight and even becoming obese.Losing weight seems to become more and more difficult. The problem is not a lack of availability of low calorie food options; the problem is more centered between the ears; if you are overweight and do not want to be, and yet you do not seem able to lose weight, there is often a conflict between what you want to do (eat all those fatty, delicious, sweet food items) and what you know you should do (say "no thank you").
To lose weight successfully you have to get your mind around how you see food, how you think about food and how you feel about food.Successful weight loss comes from within.Your own mental attitude requires a certain amount of refocusing so that you can become that slender person who automatically orders the right thing in restaurants, and says "no thank you" to the second or third glass of wine or to the dessert waiter.
