A GOOD NIGHT OUT (without the weight gain!)

Massive portions, dishes drowning in fat, that tempting dessert trolley… We help you navigate the menu so you can leave the restaurant without having to loosen your belt

The seemingly endless supply of mince pies, chocolates and goose-fat-roasted everything isn’t the only thing to blame for the extra pounds, though. Countrywide, December diaries will be filling up with dates for meals out with friends, family and colleagues, and staying true to our inner healthy eater becomes trickier the minute we take our seat at the restaurant table.
