Dine Out on a Diet: Your Restaurant Survival Guide
The Dos and Don'ts of Dining Out
If all else fails, remember these five rules when eating out:
Do stop...in the name of your diet. Take a few minutes to de-stress when you arrive at the restaurant.
Don't dine with a novel -- you'll get sucked into the story and lose track of those bites.
Do scan the menu for tempting words like rich or velvety -- and stay strong.
Do hit the ATM on your way to the restaurant so you don't pay with plastic.
Don't just request sauce on the side. Measure out an even spoonful to ensure skinny dipping.
