Eat Out and Still Lose Weight

When eating out at a restaurant, navigate the danger zones, eat what you love, and stay at a healthy weight with this menu guide and calorie chart from FITNESS.

Dining Out

Going out to dinner tonight? You've got plenty of company. Almost 75 percent of us eat at a restaurant at least once a week, and 25 percent dine out every two or three days, according to a study by the USDA. And hey, why not? Letting someone else cook is relaxing -- the perfect treat after a busy day. Trouble is, a recent study at the University of Texas found that female dieters consume an extra 253 calories and 16 fat grams on the days that they eat at restaurants. Portion sizes have ballooned in recent years -- and most of us tend to polish off every bite. Research by FITNESS advisory board member Brian Wansink, PhD, director of the Cornell University Food and Brand Lab in Ithaca, New York, and author of Mindless Eating, shows that we keep nibbling until our plates are empty rather than waiting for our bodies to signal that we're full, no matter how big the serving size.

Happily, you can order off any menu and drop pounds -- or maintain a healthy weight -- without depriving yourself. Just follow our easy, carry-it-with-you guide.

I just started using a new gourmet instant coffee that helps reduce appetite, eliminate cravings, reduce portion sizes, decrease stored carbs and recharge your metabolism to burn more fat. Javita Burn + Control works because it contains two safe, proven herbs: YERBA MATE: Helps suppress appetite, and increases caloric burn rate. GARCINIA CAMBOGIA: Helps decrease your appetite and reduces the amount of carbs stored as fat. Visit www.myjavita.com/thecoffeebiz to learn more!
