Who said you can’t eat out whilst dieting?  It may be difficult to find a diet friendly restaurant in Newcastle, especially with the majority of them not providing nutritional information for their meals. However, by simply doing a little bit of research, you can find plenty of restaurants which do. This way you can save yourself from over eating and ruining your diet.

Here are 5 restaurants in Newcastle upon Tyne that provide nutritional information and offer meals below 600 calories.

Address: 6 St. Georges Way, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE1 7JD ·

In my opinion, Nando’s is one of the best restaurants to go to whilst dieting. Their high protein, low fat options make it simple to stay within your calorie and macronutrient limits making it a great choice.

Diet Friendly Meal:

Main – Chicken Butterfly

Calories - 330

Protein - 57.2

Carbs - 0.4

Fat - 11

Side – Supergrain

Calories - 118

Protein – 7.5

Carbs – 28.9

Fat – 6.1


How to ruin your diet:

Despite Nandos generally being diet friendly, it can still be really easy to ruin your diet if you are not careful. By opting for a double side and having a dessert, you can really put yourself over your calorie limit. One side of Peri-Salted Chips is more than double the calories of a chicken butterfly and side of supergrains.

Ask Italian

Healthy resturant in newcastle


Address: The Gate Newgate Street, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne NE1 5TG

Unlike Nando’s, Ask Italian is definitely not what you’d expect to be diet friendly; many of their dishes are extremely high in calories, some even reach over 2500 which is the recommended daily allowance for a male! However, they also have meals available for those watching their weight.

Diet Friendly Meal:

Main – Sea Bass al Forno & a side of potatoes

Calories: 562

Protein: 58

Carbs: 35

Fat: 22


How to ruin your diet:

This is how easy it is to ruin your diet at Ask Italian. A side of garlic bread with mozzarella contains more calories than the whole Sea Bass dish. Avoid starters, sides and desserts when eating here, unless you are certain you can fit them in to your daily calorie limit.

Wagamma is great for those on a diet; they offer a wide variety of dishes below 500 calories, so eating there couldn’t be easier. Take a look at their menu to see what you fancy.

Diet Friendly Meal:

Main – Chicken Ramen

Calories: 476

How to ruin your diet:

Try to avoid fatty cuts of meats like duck and lamb as they can easily increase the overall calories of a dish, and instead opt for the leaner meats like tuna and chicken.

Pizza Hut

Healthy resturant in newcastle

Address: 112-116 Grey St, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE1 6JG

Pizza Hut has recently introduced flatbread pizzas, all of which contain less than 600 calories, they taste delicious and are a great alternative to real pizza.

Diet Friendly Meal:

Main – Chicken Delight Flatbread

Calories: 443

Protein: 33

Carbs: 48

Fat: 13

How to ruin your diet:

Even a margarita pizza contains 182 calories per slice so don’t be tempted to buy one when you arrive. And forget having a garlic mayonnaise dip – one of those contains half the amount of calories as a whole flatbread pizza!

Main – Meat Feast

Calories – 2688

Protein – 157

Carbs – 242

Fat – 118

How to ruin your diet:

Harvester has an amazing ability to jam calories into many of their dishes, so it’s always worth referring to their nutrition guide before ordering; fortunately they provide this on their menu. I’d also recommend thinking twice before ordering a dessert; for such a small volume of food they contain a lot of calories.
