How to Avoid Fast Food Outlets in London

Eating too much fast food is one of the hazards of living in London. Not only is London packed with fast food outlets such as franchise restaurants but that does not mean you are safe once you are at home. As soon as you pick up your phone, you are likely to be bombarded by adverts from leading take away food apps. 

A little bit of fast food is not bad for you, but too much can have a serious impact on your health. When you find you are eating too much fast food, you should consider making some easy lifestyle adjustments to improve your diet.

Most Stop For A Burger

Fast food outlets such as McDonald’s are always trying to come up with different ways to make you “ pop in”. You can save up tokens and get a free coffee, and many of us can’t resist their Monopoly game although we are not likely to win anything. 

When you find the draw of fast food restaurants hard to resist, it is a good idea to do some different route planning. Find a different route home and to work which does not take you past your favorite, or any fast food restaurants.

Uninstall Take Away Apps

Do you really need the take away apps you have installed on your phone? Instead of being constantly tempted by them, it is best to uninstall any fast food delivery apps that you may have on your own. That chicken curry may not sound so unhealthy, but in fact, it is more than likely packed with excess calories and fat. 

It would be better for you to cook your own food. Get your kitchen organised and save yourself both calories and money. Cooking at home is a lot easier than you may think and you can make your own healthy fast food at home. Yes, there is such a thing as healthy fast food.

Dine In Options From Supermarkets

This is another popular way for many Londoners to solve the dinner problem. The ready made food which you may buy from leading food chains such as Marks and Spencer sounds like it could be healthy, but take a little bit of a closer look. How many calories does one Dine In option offer you and how is it prepared? Both are two vital questions which many of us ignore.

That does not mean that Dine In themes do not offer some healthy options. Ditch the potato side and go for fish with a vegetable side dish instead. That is one of the more healthier dine in options. 

However, cooking your own food is still the best way to make sure you stay healthy. You could have a go at cooking ahead. Fill up your freezer with easy home made meals such as cottage pie and vegetarian pasta sauces. Then you have your own fast food kitchen when you come home. All you need to do is to put it in the microwave and your home ready made fast food is ready within minutes. 

Not only will you cut back on your calorie intake but you will save money as well.
