Can you give us some Tips for healthier eating when ordering food to go or delivery?

My husband and I order take out and or delivery ALL the time and we are always so tempted to make poor food choices ... and so we do!! We order comfort food because we feel we can justify it after a hard days work. We are both gaining weight and so are our children. Do you have any suggestions/tips on ordering healthier food and still feel like we've been comforted?

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Fast foods are highly processed, full of fat, calories and sodium. You can easily take in 1,500 calories from just one meal alone. The recommendation is 1,500-1,800. It also depends on health, weight and age. These type of foods can cause an increased in weight that can lead to heart disease. If you do want to give yourself and your family the choice of eating out after a long day. Which is understandable. Try leaving off the sauces, substitute the fries for a salad or yogurt, skip the soda instead have water or light lemonade, try a grill chicken vs a fried chicken sandwich and last limit your portions.  I hope this helps?

Here's a link to our site on healthy eating.
