Summertime for some of us means traveling, sports, being out of routine and cooking fewer dinners so that may also lead to eating at more fast food restaurants. Here are a few strategies you can use to help yourself make healthier choices.
1. Look at nutrition facts of the food at you and your family's most visited fast food restaurants. Take note of a few lower calorie options. Also, take note of the foods that you thought were healthy but are packed with sugar.
2. Pack vegetables. Taking some cut up veggies to eat as your side dish instead of a large fry will not only save you a ton of calories but it'll lessen the impending carb crash and provide you with fiber to help prevent constipation (and colon cancer).
3. Order water. Plain and simple. Sodas are full of food coloring and sugar which are both toxic for your body. High sugar meals combined with high fat, high heat meals are pro inflammatory and can have a negative impact on your body for HOURS. after you've finished your meal.
