Trainer Tips of the Week from South Health Campus YMCA

Restaurants, Fast Food, BIG Portions oh my….

Tips to stay on track while taking out or dining in:

1. Many fast food restaurants have healthier salad options or wraps. In a hurry can be healthy!

2. Order salads in restaurants: Be sure to ask for any dressing on the side, so you control the amount. Dressing can be very high in fat, calories and/ or sugar.

3. Consider having an appetizer as a main meal.

4. Perhaps share a meal with a friend, or ask for half to be boxed for take- out when the meal arrives.
