Dining at a restaurant can be daunting. However, keep in mind that options vary depending on the type of restaurant and cuisine you are eating.
First, do not be tempted by specials or the pictures in the menu. Most of these are entrees with large portions and more likely to have a high fat and/or caloric content. So, try to share an entrée and add a side veg and a salad.Always remember that the picture usually looks better than the actual food. If you are really interested in the special, see if you can have the server bring a to-go box so you can portion your meal prior to eating eat.
