Healthy Eating When Dining Out
Don’t Abandon Your Diet
Americans love eating out — and there’s no reason why it can’t be healthy eating. But you can’t always find out the amount of calories, fat, or salt in a restaurant’s menu items. So follow these ordering tips to make sure you stay within your healthy diet.
Some Fats Are Good for You
Monounsaturated fats: Substituted for saturated fats in your diet, they help lower bad LDL cholesterol and don’t reduce good HDL cholesterol. Found in canola oil, olive oil, olives, avocados, nuts, and nut butters.
Polyunsaturated fats: Help lower cholesterol. Found in fatty fish, vegetable oils, and nuts and sunflower seeds.
