From café breakfasts and pub meals, to the movie theatre, food court or canteen at the local sporting ground, making healthy food choices during your weekend adventures can be tricky — and eating out regularly can also become expensive!
Serving sizes when dining out are usually much larger than at home. A recent study of 364 US restaurants found 92 per cent of them serve main meals which exceed people’s daily kilojoule intake in a single serve (yep, that’s without ordering a glass of wine, entrée or dessert!)
Eating out can also mean eating less fruit and vegetables than you would normally eat during the week if cooking at home, and thanks to a lack of fibre, constipation can become an issue.
