The Dos and Don'ts of Dining Out

If all else fails, remember these five rules when eating out:

Do 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.

okay, I don't want to be the freak at the table meticulously measuring her condiments so she doesn't exceed 125.6333 calories. Just eat the burger or whatever!

This wasn't exactly what I expected. I mean really? Call ahead and take a bathroom break is considered a survival guide? I think time should have been invested before posting such an article that falls short of what it's title indicates.
