This New Yelp Feature Makes Healthy Eating Easier Than Ever
For years now, Yelp has been a helpful guide for eating out and takeout enthusiasts everywhere… effortlessly presenting users with the widest array of dining options in their area.
In addition to helping people find the best food near them, the review service and delivery app is now giving back even more to the community. A new feature recently unveiled on the app allows users to filter restaurant results not just by proximity… but by specific allergies, diets, and even religious needs.
For Yelp users, this change represents a significant step forward in eating out.
By setting specific preferences on the app, dieters won’t have to waste time calling restaurants to ask how food is prepared… whether there are gluten-free options on the menu… or whether or not there are halal and kosher places around the corner.SPECIAL: What’s REALLY Causing Your Weight Gain, High Blood Pressure & Constant Fatigue (If You’re Over 30 You Need to See This)…
While this feature might not seem too groundbreaking for folks without specific dieting restrictions and sensitivities, it makes a world of difference to those who have had to struggle for years to eat clean while eating out.
If you’re curious, here are just a few of the new preference settings you can enjoy on the app:
1) Search By Diet
It’s hard enough to stick to a new diet without having to face the challenge of eating out.
Traditionally, takeout been framed as the unhealthy alternative to preparing meals at home. However, the reality is that in plenty of places now, even outside of large urban locations, healthier options are starting to boot fattier, fried foods off the menu.
Yelp’s personalized results won’t just help seekers find healthier dining options based on diet preference. They’ll also help key users into offerings on the menu that are perfect for pescatarians… keto dieters… or folks looking to get a jumpstart on their new year’s resolution by eating clean.TRENDING: Science Reveals Easy, No-Workout Ways to Lose Weight… While You Snooze!
For many dieters, sticking to the clean regimen often means abstaining from fine dining altogether. Not anymore!
Thanks to this new feature, it’s a breeze to order healthy items off the menu… without having to scroll through every photo and review to find what you’re looking for.
2) Search By Sensitivity
Have an allergy or a sensitivity to certain ingredients? No sweat.
With the new app feature, all you have to do to set your preferences is download the latest version of the app (or upgrade your current version)… go to your profile… and check off all the boxes that apply.
Have a gluten allergy? You can now filter out all the lunch spots and bars without gluten-free options.
Trying to stay dairy-free? You’ll be gently guided toward cafes, restaurants, and sit-down spots that offer dairy-free options… and won’t make you scared to take a bite out of that no-cheese grilled cheese.
If you’re trying to cycle out certain ingredients from your diet, such as red meat or processed foods, searching for tailored, healthy options within a stone’s throw of your location doesn’t have to take up the bulk of your time anymore.
3) Search By Religious Needs
Food allergies, sensitivities, and special diets aren’t the only thing preventing Americans from eating out as much as they’d like.
If you’re someone who observes dieting rules according to your religion, there’s now an option to funnel out all restaurants who don’t observe Kosher or halal laws.TRENDING: Women Who Eat These 3 Cheeses Are Losing Pounds of Stubborn Belly Fat (Research Proven)
Even if you’re not religious, you can tell the app more about you so its predictive technology can help you avoid spaces where you might not feel comfortable.
For instance, if you’re searching for a place with gender-neutral bathrooms… a place that’s dog-friendly… or somewhere that’s safe and hospitable for families with small kids… you can let the app know and be guided away from establishments that don’t meet your criteria.
If you have certain lifestyle preferences, you can let the app know. For example, if you don’t own a car, some options might be too far away to count as a valid pick-up option.
If you have limited mobility, own a pet, or are the head of a household, Yelp can factor in your lifestyle preferences. This helps make your life just a little bit easier when dinner rolls around and you’re faced with a hungry hoard of kids and an empty fridge.
4) Search Clean Options
Any dieter can tell you that trying to stick to the confines of an eating plan… no matter what it might be… is difficult even without the constant temptation of takeout. It’s so quick and easy! Plus, it satisfies a deep need in all of us to have freshly prepared food served to us while we’re in our pajamas.
Thankfully, Yelp’s new preferences can help dieters of every stripe stick to the plan and avoid relapses. The app makes it easier than ever to filter out unhealthy or compromising options on your home screen.BRAND NEW: These Delicious Desserts Can Help You Burn Fat & Lose Weight
Temptation is a lot easier to avoid when it’s not placed right in front of you every time you look at your phone or pull up a takeout app! For folks who find it a struggle to eat clean without giving in to the temptation of a greasy fried treat, this new feature is truly a game-changer.
So, next time you’re planning a meal out (or some takeout), take this new Yelp feature for a spin. You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to find healthy-eating options tailored to your needs and preferences!
3 Science-Backed Tips To Lose Weight Faster While Eating Out (Even If You Occasionally “Slip Up”)…
This new Yelp feature is great, and VERY helpful… but sometimes we’re just too busy to search through an app.
One situation that always trips me up is when I’m running errands. Relatable? You might get hungry running around… and you just eat at the closest spot.
Personally, I can almost *never* go to Target without stopping in at Starbucks for a latte and a muffin. It’s those few moments of heaven that make running errands worth it in the first place!
…and then, with how I like to shop, my wallet comes out MUCH skinnier than my waistline…
So instead of guiltily going to the gym to burn off all those “impulse calories”… or avoiding eating out… or not going out with friends so you can stay in and starve yourself with kale salad (again, ugh)…
For example… did you know eating more protein is one of the absolute best things you can do to passively lose more weight?
The science is absolutely settled on this!
