Many restaurants serve large portions high in calories, fat, cholesterol, and sodium, all of which can threaten your heart health. Knowing how to avoid common pitfalls when dining out can help you to maintain a healthy heart. Ask for dressings and sauces to be served on the side and choose whole grain options from bread baskets before your meal. You can cut down on large portions by sharing your meal with a friend or taking half of it home. Check out this video for more tips on avoiding unhealthy choices while dining out.
