*How to Eat Out and Not Get Fat...
-Ask if you can order a smaller lunch-sized portion at dinnertime. Or, have an appetizer as a meal.
-If you order a full entree, ask for a to-go container. Package up at least a half of your food even before you take the first bite. Or, have the waiter do this for you in the kitchen before the meal is served to you.
-Ask for foods to be grilled, steamed or broiled instead of sauteed or fried. Also, request that the item be cooked without, or very little, oil or butter. Did you know most restaurants brush meat dishes with melted lard or oil before serving to make it glisten?
-Please, do not let a waiter or a chef tell you they can't or won't do something. That is ridiculous. It's your body. It's your food. It's your money. And, if a particular restaurant won't honor a reasonable request, there are plenty of good ones in the city that will welcome you.
