Many people fall off the health wagon when dining out, but with a little forethought you really can make smarter choices.

Most appetizer choices are very rich and high in calories.

Shrink Portion Size

Restaurants often serve portions that are three times the size of a normal portion size. Shrink the portion size down by half by taking half of it home to eat for another meal.

Swap a Side Item 

Don’t be afraid to ask your waiter to swap out items. Most restaurants are happy to accommodate their guests. For example, you can ask to swap a fattening side item for a fresh, low-calorie garden salad or steamed veggies (hold the butter).

Choose Water 

Soda alone can be 250-300 calories or more. Swap sugary sodas for lemon water or herbal tea.

Skip Dessert

Or, if you just can’t pass it up, share with a friend.
