Two Dining Out Weight Loss Strategies (Unconventional)

Posted by Joel Marion

Last night while out to dinner I was reminded of two research studies (yeah, I know, I’m a geek).

Allow me to set the stage.

We pull up to El Vez—a hip, Mexican-American restaurant in center city Philadelphia serving up some of the best guacamole (next to Eva’s of course) that I’ve ever had the pleasure of sampling.  A truly euphoric experience for my mouth and buds of taste.

And naturally, when you have what is a somewhat euphoric encounter when visiting a restaurant, you make other visits to said restaurant…and I do…often.

But, just so happens that we arrive and there’s an hour wait. Bummer. I knew we should have called ahead.

Sitting at the bar, and observing the many orders of guac that sat atop it, I was reminded of the first study.

Did you know you’re bound to consume roughly 20% more “mindless” calories during a night out if you fail to call ahead than if you were to have a reservation? Weight loss research has shown exactly this.

And it makes sense. You’re hungry—that is, after all, why you’re at the restaurant. Not likely you’re going to just sit there for an hour. Instead, it’s much more likely that you’ll give in to the temptation of having a drink (or two) and partaking of an appetizer.

Extra, needless calories that can simply be remedied with a little forethought.

Lesson #1 – Make a reservation or at least call ahead to cut down your “temptation” time.

The second study came to mind when we went to pay the bill. Between the six of us, the bill was, well…it wasn’t cheap. And then everyone threw in their credit card for payment…

Did you know that if you pay with plastic you’ll likely spend more (and eat more) than if you settled your bill with cash? Research has also proved this. People spend, and subsequently eat, around 30% more when they pay via credit card. Simply put, when paying with money you’re borrowing, it’s very easy to lose track of how much you’re spending, and much easier to order that extra app, desert, or larger entrée.

Lesson #2 – Set a reasonable budget for your meal and carry cash to pay for it. It will force you to work within those limitations and you won’t easy overspend (and overinduldge).

Between the lessons learned from both of these studies, you just might save yourself from consuming a dreadful extra 50% in total calories the next time you enjoy a night out on the town!
