I heard that it is best to eat before grocery shopping.  The below information will help you when it comes to those times that you are out and about, in general.  Take a look.

“One of the biggest mistakes people make is to ‘save up’ for a large holiday meal,” says Rebecca Rick, M.S., RDN, a sports dietitian at eNRG Performance in Littleton, Colorado, adding that the strategy inevitably backfires. Why? You end up over-compensating for the calories you didn’t consume earlier in the day. A better plan: “Eat normally, then have a small meal before you meet up with everyone,” says Brad Schoenfeld, PhD, author of Look Great Naked. Spanish researchers agree: In their study, people who ate a “merienda,” a small meal between lunch and dinner, were 36 percent less likely to be obese than those who didn’t consume an afternoon meal. Shoenfeld’s go-to merienda: Spinach salad with chicken. “It’s packed with nutrients, and the fiber and protein will help curb your hunger,” he says. Another option: Avocado toast with tomatoes.
