Healthy Diet

There’s not always time for home-cooked meals, but occasionally eating out doesn’t have to derail your diet. If you go to a buffet, take a walk around the entire table and choose the foods you want to eat before actually filling your plate. This will prevent overindulgence, but if you still end up biting off more than you can chew, don’t feel obligated to eat all of it. Despite what you may have been told as a kid, clearing your plate won’t solve world hunger. And when it comes time for dessert, choose only low-calorie, reduced-fat options like fresh fruit, sorbet, gelatin or angel food cake. See more tips for eating on-the-go >
