How to Eat Healthy at the Movie Theater ...


It's hard to stick to your healthy eating/weight loss plan when you're at the movies.

All your determination is under attack from all sides from rustling candy wrappers, fizzy drinks being slurped and enticing aromas assailing your nostrils.

The key is to turn your determination into focusing on how you can eat healthy and not feel like you're missing out.

1. Plan Ahead

One of the best ways to eat healthy at the movie theatre is to have a think at home and plan what you are going to get before you actually arrive at the cinema.2

Getting up to the counter can be quite overwhelming with the smell of the candy and the popcorn, and a person who doesnโ€™t have a plan already can get carried away and buy all the bad things!

Take some water with you so you donโ€™t have to buy a soda, and have the will power to stick to your original plans!

2. Hot Pretzel

When it comes to movie theatre snacks that arenโ€™t going to make you regret it in terms of health effects, a hot pretzel definitely isnโ€™t the worst choice you could make.2

They might not smell or taste as good as the ones from the local bakery, but they arenโ€™t filled with sugar or saturated fat and if you really want to go that extra mile to make them as healthy as possible, you can always brush off a lot of the salt that sits on top of them.

3. No Butter

It might taste oh so good, but if you are on a health kick, then you really need to bite the bullet and ask for your popcorn without the butter.

Plain popcorn might not sound like the dream movie snack, but once you get in to the plot of the film, you will soon find that you donโ€™t miss the butter that much and can enjoy your food knowing that it is slightly healthier than it should have been.
