Stars Who Left Roles On Popular TV Shows

2017-03-28T19:59:51Z

Abby Lee Miller announced that she would be leaving her hit show Dance Moms with an explosive Instagram post. She captioned a photo of herself with a few of her students, "I WILL NO LONGER TAKE PART IN DANCE MOMS. FOR THE PAST SIX YEARS/ SEVEN SEASONS I HAVE ASKED, BEGGED, AND EVEN DEMANDED CREATIVE CREDIT FOR ALL THE IDEAS, AWARD WINNING ROUTINES, THEMES, AND COSTUMING - TO NO AVAIL!"   She continued, "TODAY, I WAS SO PROUD THAT I WENT AGAINST THE PRODUCER'S IDEA (ONCE AGAIN) TO ENTER A COMMAND PERFORMANCE OF ONE OF MY FAVORITE NUMBERS... "WHERE HAVE ALL THE CHILDREN GONE?" ALONG WITH THREE BEAUTIFUL SOLOS!.   Then she explains that she's been "manipulated, disrespected and used." "I JUST HAVE A PROBLEM WITH BEING MANIPULATED, DISRESPECTED, AND USED - DAY IN AND DAY OUT BY MEN WHO NEVER TOOK A DANCE LESSON IN THEIR LIVES AND TREAT WOMEN LIKE DIRT!"   Lifetime and A&E, the networks which produce the series, have yet to comment. Are you sad to see Abby Lee Miller go?Tamron Hall found out just about the same time as the rest of us that she and Al Roker would be replaced by Megyn Kelly on the third hour of Today. She decided to leave NBC and MSNBC abruptly this week with her last show being Tuesday, January 31. Who could blame her?   Her coanchor and good friend Roker addressed her exit this morning on Today, saying, "As some of you may have heard by now, our good friend Tamron Hall has decided to leave NBC News." He continued, "Personally, Tamron has been not just a cohost on Today for the past three years, but a good friend — and to not just me, but to all of us here. We want to wish her nothing but the best, much continued success, and we cannot wait to see what her next chapter is."    Hall broke her silence Wednesday and released the following statement: "The last 10 years have been beyond anything I could have imagined, and I’m grateful. I’m also very excited about the next chapter. To all my great colleagues, I will miss you and I will be rooting for you."   I know I will for sure miss Tamron and have no plans to watch Kelly on Today. What about you guys?    [Photos: Splash News]    After four seasons, Yolanda Foster (now Hadid) is leaving the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She revealed the news via Instagram, "I would have loved a more graceful exit then "Season 6" but sometimes we don't get to control the ending of the chapters in our life............ I am leaving what's over without denying its past importance in my life. I believe that every exit is an new entry and with that in mind I say goodbye to my @Bravotv Family as I continue to focus on a my recovery, my children and bring back the privacy within our Home..........." Yolanda was open about her struggle with Lyme disease throughout the series and in the last season, the strain it put on her marriage to David Foster. The two split up at the end of 2015.Her message continued, "Thank you to all the fans for your love and unwavering support these past 4 years. I am grateful for the housewife experience and all it has thought me. I'am excited about this choice and look forward to the next chapter of my life.................. #RHOBH #TimeToSayGoodbye with #Gratitude @evolutionusa @bravoandy @bravotv #WWHL" We wish Yolanda and her family the best![Photo: Splash News]UPDATE: After a week of public spectacle, Kelly Ripa has returned to Live With Kelly And Michael. Back in her early morning groove, Ripa had a few words to share with her studio audience: "Guys, our long national nightmare is over. I first want to honestly sincerely thank you for welcoming me back to the show. The show of support to this bizarre time has really been overwhelming. I needed a couple of days to gather my thoughts; after 26 years with this company, I earned the right. And let's be honest, I know half of you called in sick to be here, so we get each other." So true, Kelly! Glad to have you back :) Live With Kelly And Michael fans are NOT happy, and with good reason! Michael Strahan, h[...]



7 Cheap Moisturizers With Incredible Reviews And Reputations

2017-03-28T18:56:16Z

One thing winter in New York has taught me over the years is do NOT skip out on moisturizer, for both your face and body. But a good moisturizer doesn't necessarily have to be expensive. In fact, many drugstore options are actually incredibly popular and have amazing reviews. Find out which moisturizers we're talking about in the slideshow--->   [Photo: Shutterstock]Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream Moisturizer ($24.93)   This highly-praised moisturizer not only moisturizes skin, but also helps with anti-aging by reducing fine lines. It's heavy enough for nighttime use, yet light enough to put on before doing your makeup. You probably won'y find a better face product under $30. Aquaphor Advanced Therapy Healing Ointment Skin Protectant ($6.96)   Aquaphor is Beyoncé's anti-aging trick. Enough said. Aveeno® Positively Radiant® Daily Moisturizer ($13.59)   This lightweight lotion is ideal for layering under makeup and the formula contains soy extract, which dermatologists recommend for lightening dark spots. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel ($19.99)   This dry skin-saver works well even on oily skin--and a little goes a long way! Kerry Washington is a fan, and she's got flawless skin!CeraVe® Moisturizing Cream ($10.97)   What makes this cream so great is that it can be used on your body and face. It heals dry skin and cracked heels, making this a must-have product during the colder months. Eucerin® Sensitive Skin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Lotion ($8.79)   This under $10, dermatologist-approved moisturizer is great for sensitive skin as it contains no fragrance and is non-comedogenic. It also helps with anti-aging, like reducing fine lines and wrinkles, so it's definitely a winner! Kiss My Face Chinese Botanical Ultra Moisturizer    This lightweight moisturizer absorbs into skin quickly. One Total Beauty reader says, "My skin actually does feel softer and less tight," with another adding, "It's a non-greasy formula too." [...]One thing winter in New York has taught me over the years is do NOT skip out on moisturizer, for both your face and body.

Celebrities Who Quit Social Media

2017-03-28T18:14:03Z

Milo Ventimiglia's last Instagram post is from four years ago, but he's just revealing now why he quit the photo-sharing app.    "It started as a place [for] a collective group of photographers and artists to share their work, and their lives," the This Is Us star told The Associated Press. "And at a certain point — after doing it for three years — I saw it change."   He continued, "Nobody was looking at the photos. They were asking me about my acting jobs. And I kinda went, 'Oh, man.'"    Turns out, the actor has been interested in photography since he was a kid growing up in Anaheim, California. He explained to the AP that Instagram was over for him once superficial content started taking over. "It felt like it lost what I'd grown to love about it as a photographer," he said.   It's no wonder you won't find a single promotional image on his feed!    As for his last post in January 2013, a photo of the Los Angeles skyline at night with the caption "Finito," Ventimiglia explained, "I realized, 'Wow, this capsule is done.’ I just finished it." He added, "And I don’t need to open it back up to promote the work or anything. I felt like an artist who had a series and he just finished."   Sad we don't get to see you on the 'gram anymore, Milo, but at least we get you on our TVs every week!    [Photo: Splash News]    Kendall Jenner decided she's over Instagram. At least, that's what it seems like. The model deleted her account on November 13 without any warning.   Hopefully, it's just a temporary break from the 'gram (her Facebook and Twitter are still active). Or maybe she needed some space after all the backlash from her Vogue España ballet-theme shoot.    Are you sad that Kendall left Instagram?

The Worst Foods To Eat If You’re Sick, According To Doctors

2017-03-28T16:42:01Z

Being sick can feel downright awful. Laying in bed all day seems nice, until your stomach feels like it’s in never-ending knots and you can’t stop coughing and running to the bathroom.   What can make you feel even worse is your diet. Definitely try to avoid these foods when you're sick so you can get better as quick as possible!    [Photos: Shutterstock]Sugarless gum and candies contain sorbitol and other artificial sweeteners that could cause diarrhea when your stomach isn't feeling well, according to James Lee, MD. These foods aren't digestible, which upsets the stomach more and causes you to run to the bathroom!If you're constipated, you should definitely stay away from chocolate. Chocolate, especially added with dairy, can make constipation much worse, according to Dr. Lee.Everyone has had that one coffee cup that makes them nauseous. If you're feeling queasy, stay away from the cup of joe for your stomach's sake. The caffeine in coffee is known to cause nausea, as well as loss of appetite. If you have a sore throat, Lauren Slayton, RD, recommends staying away from scratchy foods like potato chips and nuts. These foods can irritate your throat even more, and the salt on them will dry it out. Instead, go for a lukewarm cup of tea to help soothe your throat.Being sick can feel downright awful.

How To Have A Fairytale Wedding On A Tight Budget

2017-03-15T01:42:20Z

Believe it or not, you don’t need to spend a small fortune to make your big day perfect. There are plenty of ways to save money while still having a fairytale wedding.It makes sense that getting married during peak wedding season (June and September are the most popular months) will cost you more. Setting a date for an off-peak time, such as January-March, will definitely help save some serious dough. Bonus points if you get married on a weekday, which is gaining popularity with many couples because of the cost-effectiveness.Don’t be afraid to try to negotiate with your vendors to see if they’re at all flexible with their prices. Some might be willing to cut costs if you’re getting married during off-season or on a weekday, while others can find cheaper alternatives to what you’re looking for.There’s nothing wrong with buying wedding items that have been gently used at a big discount. You can get everything from a designer wedding gown and veil to décor items and more on sites like Ebay.com, Bridalgaragesales.com and Ruffledblog.com/recycle-your-wedding/Picking off-season foods and flowers for your wedding means those items will have to be flown in from other locales—and that boosts the price. Instead, choose local options that will be easy for your vendors to get for you.It doesn’t make sense to buy luxe items for your wedding day—you’re only going to use them for one day. Instead, look into renting in order to save money. Table linens, picture frames, candle hurricanes, and even the bridesmaids’ dresses are just a few of the items you can rent instead of buy.The more guests you have the more invites, food, drinks, favors, etc. you’ll need. You can splurge in these areas if you don’t have to order as much.While a cash bar is an etiquette no-no, you don’t need to serve a top-shelf open bar. Limiting the bar options, or only opting for beer, wine and soda, can result in big savings.If you’re crafty then you can take on some of the wedding to-dos on your own. And there are some simple DIYs even the least talented crafter can handle.

The Scary Downside To Keratin That No One Tells You About

2017-03-28T12:28:31Z

If you have frizzy or extremely thick hair that takes forever to dry, a professional keratin treatment can seem like a miracle come to life. By combining the protein keratin (which is found in our hair) and the chemical formaldehyde (which is absolutely not found in our hair), applying it and then sealing the deal with an extremely hot flat iron, a salon professional can create a treatment that fills in the gaps in your hair shaft and helps hair lay flat and smooth.   [Photos: Shutterstock]Keratin treatments are so effective that, even if you opt not to blow dry hair after washing it — the thought alone would make a girl with frizzy hair cringe — your hair dries faster than usual and looks like glass.   So, what's not to love about a keratin treatment?Unfortunately, the health risks of inhaling formaldehyde in its gas form may not outweigh the benefits of perfect hair, according to the National Center for Health Research. When we breathe in this chemical, it can cause severe allergic reactions of the skin, eyes, and respiratory tract. If you start incorporating keratin treatments into your beauty routine and book appointments every six months or so, the repeated exposure can put you at a higher risk for getting cancer.Studies have shown possible links between people working in environments where they were exposed to formaldehyde to leukemia and throat and nasal sinus cancer, though the American Cancer Society says studies have yet to find a consistent link.Scary — but it doesn't have to be all doom and gloom. Some salons are offering formaldehyde-free keratin treatments that many say work just as well (and won't cause you any added stress and anxiety). When in doubt, always ask a salon whether its treatment contains formaldehyde so that you can make a more informed decision. And if you do opt for a traditional Brazilian Blowout or keratin treatment, make sure the room is well-ventilated and that you (and your stylist) are wearing face masks to lessen the risks.If you have frizzy or extremely thick hair that takes forever to dry, a professional keratin treatment can seem like a miracle come to life. By combining the protein keratin (which is found in our hair) and the chemical formaldehyde (which is absolutely not found in our hair), applying it and then sealing the deal with an extremely hot flat iron, a salon professional can create a treatment that fills in the gaps in your hair shaft and helps hair lay flat and smooth.   [Photos: Shutterstock]Keratin treatments are so effective that, even if you opt not to blow dry hair after washing it — the thought alone would make a girl with frizzy hair cringe — your hair dries faster than usual and looks like glass.   So, what's not to love about a keratin treatment?Unfortunately, the health risks of inhaling formaldehyde in its gas form may not outweigh the benefits of perfect hair, according to the National Center for Health Research. When we breathe in this chemical, it can cause severe allergic reactions of the skin, eyes, and respiratory tract. If you start incorporating keratin treatments into your beauty routine and book appointments every six months or so, the repeated exposure can put you at a higher risk for getting cancer.Studies have shown possible links between people working in environments where they were exposed to formaldehyde to leukemia and throat and nasal sinus cancer, though the American Cancer Society says studies have yet to find a consistent link.Scary — but it doesn't have to be all doom and gloom. Some salons are offering formaldehyde-free keratin treatments that many say work just as well (and won't cause you any added stress and anxiety). When in doubt, always ask a salon whether its treatment contains formaldehyde so[...]

The One Thing You Should Never Order At KFC, According To A Former Employee

2017-03-27T15:17:20Z

Fast food is always a tempting meal for us dieters. We all know that it isn’t the healthiest choice for us, but we’re always convincing ourselves that one little cheat meal won’t hurt. Well, if you’re eating at KFC, think again.   [Photos: Shutterstock]KFC is known to be full of fat, salt and grease. Although their chicken tastes great, the feeling it will leave in your body won’t be the same. There’s one thing in particular that you should never, ever even think about eating at this fried chicken shop.The gravy, according to an ex-employee, is the most untouchable thing at KFC. It’s not because of its fat and calorie content, which is quite a bit, it’s actually a hygienic reason.“It is primarily made of the filthy oil that stores up at the bottom of the cookers over the day and is then served to customers the next day,” said the former employee, only known by his Reddit name JoeyBosa.So, are you in the mood for some dirty cooker oil? Probably not. Definitely try to stay away from the gravy. Instead, try healthier options on the KFC menu like grilled chicken and their roasted chicken caesar salad.

The Best Lunches To Speed Up Your Metabolism, According To Dietitians

2017-03-27T20:42:30Z

Lunch hour at work can be a total killer to your diet, especially when you work in a city where pizzerias and McDonald’s' are everywhere you turn. Instead of going out to lunch and ordering Chinese takeout yet again, try these healthy meal swaps that will help speed up your metabolism.   [Photos: Shutterstock]According to Dan Benardot, PhD, RD, an associate professor of nutrition and kinesiology at Georgia State University, and Tammy Lakatos, RD, your meal should have at least 3 ounces of protein in order to speed up your metabolism. Protein is necessary in order to maintain muscles in your body. Fish is a great source of protein and is leaner than most meats, so you won’t be eating a heavy amount of fat.Salads are always a great choice for lunch, according to Dr. Benardot and Dr. Lakatos. Salads have fiber to help your digestive system get stronger, and can be mixed with other additives like meats, fruits and nuts to get an extra dose of protein, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants necessary for your metabolism. Make sure you aren’t dousing your salad in dressing and cheese since those items can add fat and calories to your once-healthy meal!Chicken and other poultry dishes are great for getting the protein necessary for your metabolism. Poultry also contains iron, which helps carry oxygen to your muscles and burn fat away.   If you have a low-iron diet, you will begin to feel sluggish due to low-energy, and your metabolism will start to slow down too. So stick to lean poultry meats like grilled chicken and turkey for lunch to get energized for your day.Tofu is a vegetarian’s favorite for protein. For those of you who don’t know, it’s a soy-based product that also contains vitamin D, which is crucial to preserving metabolism-revving muscle tissue. It is also very versatile to cook with, and absorbs basically any flavor you add to it to make it nutritious and delicious!Lunch hour at work can be a total killer to your diet, especially when you work in a city where pizzerias and McDonald’s' are everywhere you turn.

The One Organic Mistake That’s Slowing Your Weight Loss, According To A Dietitian

2017-03-27T15:12:11Z

For the most part, the emphasis on healthy eating is a big step in the right direction — with a few glaring exceptions. Organic foods are produce and other foods grown without pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, and genetically modified organisms and organic meats are those sold without growth hormones and antibiotics. Generally speaking, it's usually healthier to opt for organic foods if you have the choice.   [Photos: Shutterstock]But there's one common organic mistake that Andrea Giancoli, registered dietitian and spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, told the Chicago Tribune could be affecting your health and weight.If a package of chocolate chip cookies is labeled "organic," it does not mean the treat contains fewer calories or grams of sugar and fat than non-organic junk food, Giancoli says, who adds that many people see the word "organic" and, assuming it's healthier, stock up on that food. In reality, Giancoli says, an organic cookie simply contains ingredients like wheat, sugar, or chocolate that are grown organically. At the end of the day, chocolate is still chocolate: decadent and delicious, but not a low-fat goodie.Anytime you are purchasing an organic high processed food, Giancoli says your radar should go up. Unlike organic whole foods (like veggies and fruits), these processed foods often contain lots of sugar and refined white flour. Pretty much the opposite of what comes to mind when you think about a healthy, organic food.When in doubt, remember to read food labels carefully and to pay close attention to both the amount of sugar, sodium, and calories in a food, as well as the ingredients that pop up first on the list.For the most part, the emphasis on healthy eating is a big step in the right direction — with a few glaring exceptions.

The One Thing You Should Never Do To Dry Skin, According To A Dermatologist

2017-03-27T13:46:31Z

If you suffer from dry skin, your first thought might be to scrub away the flakes. You also might want to hydrate with a long shower. However, it turns out you might be doing more harm than good. Click through the slideshow to find out the one thing dermatologists say you should never do if you have dry skin.   [Images: Shutterstock]According to the American Academy of Dermatology, the number one thing you want to do when you have dry skin is to avoid hot baths and showers. Baths and showers can make dry skin worse. If you have dry skin, the AAD suggests limiting your time in the shower or bath to 5 to 10 minutes. You should also use warm water, opposed to hot water.According to StyleCaster, people with dry skin should also avoid stripping their skin with harsh cleansers. Find a gentle cleanser that won't irritate your skin. The AAD suggests applying enough cleanser to remove dirt and soil, but avoid using so much that you see a thick lather. After cleansing, gently blot your skin with a towel and immediately apply moisturizer.    You also want to avoid products with a high content of alcohol, like toners. These products will dry out your skin even more. Another no-no for dry skin is using a lot of face masks. Many ingredients in face masks can dry out your skin. If you have dry skin, avoid clay or clarifying masks. Instead, look for masks that are moisturizing or soothing. For a brightening and hyrdarating treatment, try to the Glossier Moisturizing Moon Mask ($22).   Exfoliating too much can also dry out your skin. You might think it's a good idea to scrub away your flakey skin, but this will actually irritate and dry out your skin. Exfoliate 1 to 3 times a week with a gentle scrub.Those with dry skin should avoid powder makeup and foundation. According to StyleCaster, powders can emphasize dry skin. Stick with liquid foundations and cream products that will be hydrating and give you a dewy finish.If you suffer from dry skin, your first thought might be to scrub away the flakes.

Click through the slideshow to find out the one thing dermatologists say you should never do if you have dry skin.   [Images: Shutterstock]According to the American Academy of Dermatology, the number one thing you want to do when you have dry skin is to avoid hot baths and showers. Baths and showers can make dry skin worse. If you have dry skin, the AAD suggests limiting your time in the shower or bath to 5 to 10 minutes. You should also use warm water, opposed to hot water.According to StyleCaster, people with dry skin should also avoid stripping their skin with harsh cleansers. Find a gentle cleanser that won't irritate your skin. The AAD suggests applying enough cleanser to remove dirt and soil, but avoid using so much that you see a thick lather. After cleansing, gently blot your skin with a towel and immediately apply moisturizer.    You also want to avoid products with a high content of alcohol, like toners. These products will dry out your skin even more. Another no-no for dry skin is using a lot of face masks. Many ingredients in face masks can dry out your skin. If you have dry skin, avoid clay or clarifying masks. Instead, look for masks that are moisturizing or soothing. For a brightening and hyrdarating treatment, try to the Glossier Moisturizing Moon Mask ($22).   Exfoliating too much can [...]

This means I don’t have to buy cosmetics all that often, but every once in a while there’s a product I just need to own. When I saw this No7 Shine & Tint lip color in my local drugstore, I had to have it. The color was just so wonderful. There was actually a tester at the display, so I swiped a little across my hand. That did it; this lip color was coming home with me. That was months ago and since then this No7 Shine & Tint  hasn’t left my makeup bag. Whenever I need a nice wash of color on my lips, I always find myself reaching for this. Despite the fact that this is technically classified as a gloss, it actually delivers quite a bit of color. I love that it’s super moisturizing and has pretty good staying power. The intensity wears off over time, but it definitely gives you some sheen and color for hours. Most importantly, No7 Shine & Tint is only $9.99! At that price, there’s really no reason not to give it a try. No7 Shine & Tint ($9.99) Be sure to check out the best drugstore beauty products and our favorite beauty drops. [Photo: Target] [...]



How To Make Sure Everyone Has Fun At Your Wedding

2017-03-14T23:30:51Z

You’ve spent months planning your wedding day and you want to make sure your guests have the time of their lives. Paying attention to these seven details will put you on the right track.Comfort is key, so if your guests are too hot or too cold during your event, that is all they will focus on. Think about what you need at the venue to make sure everyone feels their best, whether it’s plenty of shade for a summer wedding or heaters for a winter event.Your guest list will likely span many age groups, so make sure your band or DJ covers a wide spectrum of tunes during the reception. The goal is to have almost everyone take a spin on the dance floor at some point during the night.   It’s also always a nice touch to add a little something extra to your wedding entertainment, such as a photo booth, professional dancers, a magician (if kids are invited) and the like.Hungry guests are unhappy guests, so make sure you have plenty of food throughout the event—and that there are also options for guests with dietary restrictions. And while serving alcohol is a personal choice for the bride and groom, if you are going to serve, make sure you have an open bar. No one wants to have to pay for their drinks at a wedding.Having a strict dress code for your wedding? Make sure you let everyone know well in advance of the big day. You don’t want anyone to show up and feel uncomfortable.   Another important tip: when you have a large gap between the ceremony and cocktail hour, you lose momentum during the event. Guests get bored and hungry, and that’s not how you want them to come into your reception. If you must have a gap to take photos, plan for something to keep your guests occupied during that time, such as providing some type of entertainment or a tour of your venue if appropriate.Try to find a way to surprise your guests that they’ll really love and probably not expect, such as a specialty food truck in the parking lot as they leave the wedding or an appearance by your college marching band.You’ve spent months planning your wedding day and you want to make sure your guests have the time of their lives.

The Worst Foods For Blackheads, According To A Dermatologist

2017-03-26T20:01:00Z

A healthy diet not only influences weight loss but it also plays a role in clear skin. Studies reveal that there’s a connection between what you eat and how your skin behaves. As the old saying goes, “you are what you eat,” so it’s important to be mindful of the foods that negatively impact your skin. Click to find out what foods potentially cause blackheads.   [Photo: Shutterstock]1. Juice   According to Jolene Hart, a certified health coach, "Juice, especially if it's mostly fruit, is high in sugar with no fiber. Sipped on its own it causes a spike in your blood sugar that leads to increased sebum production and inflammation.” Bottle juice, even pressed juices, can be a major breakout trigger.   [Photo: Shutterstock]2. Dairy   Registered Dietitian, Dr. Whitney Bowe says, "The exact process is still unknown, but the thought is that when [whey and casein] bind to receptors in the digestive tract they signal certain molecules that trigger breakouts.” Studies also suggest that the hormones may be another culprit. Either way, dairy especially skim milk (because there’s added proteins) can cause more blackheads.   [Photo: Shutterstock]3. Milk Chocolate   Milk chocolate is “a trifecta of some of the most common triggers: refined sugar, dairy, and often trans fats,” says Bowe. If you want clear skin, milk chocolate is definitely the food you should cut out. However, you can still satisfy your sweet tooth with dark chocolate made with at least 70 percent cocoa to avoid the bad stuff and get an antioxidant boost.

The Worst Restaurant Foods That Are Slowing Your Weight Loss, According To Dietitians

2017-03-24T18:42:46Z

Going out to eat is a battlefield when you're on a diet or just trying to be healthy. If that's you, make sure to not order these dishes next time you eat at a restaurant.    [Photos: Shutterstock]It's hard to dip responsibly, and most of us don't. Joan Salge Blake, RD, tells Health that the amount of bread and olive oil we typically eat at restaurants adds up to hundreds of calories, and that's before we even get our main meals!   "Pasta is inexpensive and it’s easy for restaurants to make a profit, but that comes at the expense of your waist," Blake explains to Health.   Since it comes so cheap, restaurants serve huge portions of pasta that you should really spread out into two meals. Think about it: this will save you money, keep you healthy and you get to enjoy the dish all over again the next day! A serving of chicken is just two-three ounces when cooked, but restaurants give you a way larger piece. "People think chicken is a free food, but some sizes of the breasts are huge. They can be 9 ounces!" Blake says. That should definitely be split into two meals at least! Don't be fooled by entrée salads. Restaurants tend to load up these dishes with thousands of calories, turning it into an extremely unhealthy option. "It’s amazing what some restaurants can do to a once-innocent pile of greens, especially when they serve your salad with the dressing on," Christine Gerbstadt, MD, tells Health.    For example, some salads at the Cheesecake Factory have more calories than an actual slice of cheesecake! Who would have guessed??Just like with bread and olive oil, it's too easy to overeat chips and salsa from a restaurant. Don't fill up before you get what you're paying for!Going out to eat is a battlefield when you're on a diet or just trying to be healthy.

The One Thing That Annoys Restaurant Chefs The Most, According To Chefs

2017-03-24T16:18:10Z

Going out to eat is always a fun time, but it can get stressful for the employees. From my experience working in restaurants, I’ve learned that chefs probably have the hardest job on the planet. They’re responsible for the most important part of a customer’s experience: the food.   [Photos: Shutterstock]Chefs are an obvious staple to the success of a restaurant since they make everything that people come for. But there are major challenges for these food experts, especially when a restaurant is busy.Chefs have to go through tons of obstacles each day just to get by at work. From nagging customers to kitchen fires (which can happen almost daily), I praise them for their remarkable patience in their work space. But there’s one thing that can push even the most experienced chef over the edge…And that’s being rushed by their customers, multiple anonymous chefs told Thrillist. “It is nearly impossible for any restaurant that is not McDonald’s or Taco Bell to seat and serve a table in 15-20 minutes," one of the chefs said.   Customers that come in and expect everything to magically appear to them in under 20 minutes are very frustrating to deal with, and it’s nearly impossible for chefs to try to cook a whole table’s meal in that time.If you are in a rush, make sure to make a reservation so the whole restaurant can plan for your arrival. Also, don’t order food that will take long to cook, like well-done steaks. Instead, go for a pre-made soup or simple salad to make sure you get out on time.Going out to eat is always a fun time, but it can get stressful for the employees.
