Health Tip: Do Your Homework Before Dining Out

Make sure there are healthy options

(HealthDay News) -- Eating out is fun for the entire family, but the temptation to over-indulge sometimes makes you want to stay home.

The American Heart Association recommends:

  • Review the menu before you go, and look for a restaurant that offers healthy choices and the ability to prepare food on request.
  • Avoid buffets and all-you-can-eat specials, which can make it too easy to overload on calories.
  • Decide what you'll order before you get to the restaurant, to make sure you're making the best choice.
