Healthy Lifestyle while Socializing - Have A Plan

Have a plan

Know your restaurant/café menu, some places display it online and most will email to you upon request.

Check it out in advance and prepare what you will order ahead of time so you don’t give into temptation.

Eat a healthy snack

About one hour prior to going out to eat with friends or drink a simple high fibre smoothie (add chia or flax) so that you are not starving and less likely to over indulge.

Healthy Lifestyle while Socializing - Share Starter

Try sharing a starter

Share a starter with someone else and skip dessert (desserts spelled backwards is stressed and this is exactly what it does to your system)

Order a side glass of water

If drinking alcohol, always order a side glass of water and try to drink 1-2 waters per one alcoholic drink to stay hydrated if you can and consider taking some activated charcoal with plenty of water before bed to help to counter balance the harmful effects of alcohol and prevent a heavy head the following morning.

Activated charcoal can interfere with certain medications and alcohol can be dangerous with some medications, always be sure to supplement wisely under the supervision of a healthcare provider.

Load up on veggies

Load up on veggies, quality proteins, high fibre veggies and good fats but watch out for starchy or refined carbs and creamy or sweet sauces and dressings

Eat slowly and chew the food thoroughly
