Updated on July 29, 2014

Is It Possible to Eat Healthy at Hibachi Buffet Restaurants?

Are you doing a weight loss challenge for the new year and seeking creative ways to eat healthy without over doing it on calorie consumption? Believe it or not, there are many ways for people or dieting for either a weight loss journey, marathon, or just to have a different outlook on life to achieve and maintain good health. Healthy food selections are available at most buffet restaurants. You don't always have to give into temptation when seeing all kinds of delicious food before your eyes. In fact, Hibachi buffet restaurants specialize in serving healthy selections to their customers.

If you're wondering if healthy food is available at your local hibachi buffet restaurant, no need to guess anymore. Every hibachi buffet restaurant serves salad such as lettuce, spinach, sliced tomato, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, fresh sliced raw mushrooms, and pickles. Additionally, hibachi buffet restaurants also serve low-calorie salad dressing to dress up your leaves and veggies. If you're looking to portion size your lunch or dinner at the hibachi restaurant, starting off with a salad is a good choice and will inspire you to eat healthy while you're there. You're probably ready to dive into delicious healthy entrées at the restaurant after chopping down a delicious salad.

Portion sizing is critical to your weight loss and physique reshaping success. That can't be emphasized enough. It's so easy at any hibachi buffet restaurant to stuff your face and go nuts like girls gone wild over food. When putting food on your plate at the hibachi buffet restaurant, it's a good idea to portion size the following meat protein recommendations:

  • Salmon
  • Hibachi chicken
  • Pollock
  • Turkey
  • Shrimp
  • Mussels
  • Teriyaki steak

'Eating and Portion Sizing'

Portion sizing your food at the restaurant will allow your metabolism to effectively digest. It also allow your metabolism to process food and not converted into stored fat. It's a good idea an hour or two after you've consumed food to not only continue drinking water throughout the day, but also, take a brisk walk or jog on your treadmill at home if you own a home treadmill. As we all know food does have a tendency over time to slow down the metabolism as the body gracefully ages. Keeping you cardiovascular activity up to par before and after eating food not just at a hibachi restaurant, but any restaurant, is always a good thing.

Did you know hibachi restaurants also serve what's called tofu? It's a healthy source of vegetarian protein that meat free. Being that it's meat free and derives from soybean, the body does not have to work as hard as it traditionally would to digest meat protein. Tofu is a wonderful source of protein good for lean muscle building and good to consume in preparation for 26.2 mile marathons. Tofu is the preferred source of protein for vegetarians.

Eating healthy at a hibachi buffet restaurant is possible if you make the right choice. You're not always going to eat healthy every time. It's okay because you're human. You might sneak a chicken wing, Gen. TSO's chicken, fried mozzarella cheese stick, or perhaps something else on your plate that's fried. If and when you do put things like that on your plate, immediately repent for by doing cardio on the treadmill or walking at your local park the same day. It'll help your metabolism to the point of getting those foods removed from your system as soon as possible. There's many more healthy selections of food at hibachi buffet restaurants that's too many to mention. All you have to do to stay healthy is make the right choices when out dining whether it's lunch or dinner.

'Helpful Calorie Burning Tip'

Here's a helpful tip that may potentially help you burn more calories before and after eating healthy hibachi food. If you do cardio on your treadmill at home or at the gym 10 to 20 min. before arriving at the buffet restaurant, it'll help boost your metabolism "as previously mentioned." By doing cardio before arriving at the restaurant you are stimulating stored fat to be burned. That's always a good thing.

It'll also help you lose weight faster if you practice this healthy habit of doing cardio before eating. It's a wise practice to do cardio first thing in the morning for 20 min. to one hour before starting your work day. Always remember you are what you eat so choose wisely when dining out at hibachi buffet restaurants.
