Nutrition Within Calories
* Prefer boiled/roasted foods to fried foods.
* Coconut water as a beverage & refresher is safe & hygienic.
* As a beverage choice, ask for water or order fat-free or low-fat milk,    unsweetened tea, or other drinks without added sugars.

* Order tandoori roti instead of naan/paratha/parotha.

* In a restaurant, start your meal with a salad packed with veggies, to help control hunger and feel        satisfied sooner.

* Ask for salad dressing to be served on the side. Then use only as much as you want.

* Choose main dishes that include vegetables/ meat that is cooked in onion tomato gravy rather than    dishes that are nut or cream based.

* Add little or no butter/ghee/cheese to your food for e.g. choose naan/ roti/dosa/idli/burger/sandwich    without fat.

* Order steamed, grilled, or broiled dishes instead of those that are fried or sautéd. For e.g.  Choose    paneer/chicken tikka instead of gravy or fried dishes. Choose idli instead of vada/dosa.

* Choose a “small” or “medium” portion for main dish, side dish & beverages.

* Choose fruits for dessert rather than sweets.

* Order an item from the menu instead of heading for the “all-you-can-eat” buffet.

* If main portions at a restaurant are larger than you want, try one of these strategies to keep from    overeating:

                   * Share a main dish with a friend.

                   * Order an appetizer or a side dish instead of a main dish.

                   * Resign from the “clean your plate club” – when you’ve eaten enough, leave the rest.

* On long commutes or shopping trips, pack some fresh fruit, cut-up vegetables, or a handful of    unsalted nuts to help you avoid stopping for sweet or fatty snacks.

* Last but not the least to eat food & beverages from a relatively hygienic place, where hygienic food  handling and cooking practices are practiced.
