How can you help yourself not overeat when you are eating out?  It is a challenge, but with some good habits, it can be done.  It will require special instructions, but I have never been in a restaurant that wouldn’t agree to accommodate my requests:


-Tell the waiter you have dietary restrictions, and salt and oils need to be used sparingly

-Ask for no butter to be added

-Request the waiter NOT to bring bread to the table

-Ask for sauces to be served on the side

-If you’re eating at a restaurant that gives huge portions, split an entrée with a friend, or ask for a box to be brought to pack ½ up immediately.  Don’t wait, or you will eat the whole portion.  At places like Olive Garden, the pasta Carbinara can have 1800 calories.

-If you see nothing but fried foods on the menu, ask for an appetizer such as stuffed mushrooms to be cooked separately (to cut mushrooms and sauté).

-Ask and drink a glass of water before foods are served.
