1 :- When you go out with friends try to have your lunch or dinner at subway. The healthiest option out there . Take a veggie delite sub in brown bread and eating out won’t harm your diet and weight at all . Tell them not to put mayo in it though.

2 :- If you don’t have a say in the place of  eating then make your choices  sensibly . If you go to eat Chinese have rice rather than noodles . Order stir fried veggies instead of  Manchurian and control your proportions . Don’t take fried starters . Avoid those thick soups they are no good.

3 :- When going out just pick 2 fruits before sitting in the car and eat it on your way to the venue. When you are already a little filled before going out . Your somewhat filled stomach  helps your mind take the right decision

4 :-  If eating Indian , order tandoori chappati rather than butter naan or parantha . Take less gravy since it is the most fattening .

Even if you don’t want to lose weight keep these points in your mind and you will be able to maintain  your weight easily .

So go on a diet now and get your svelte figure back.
