There’s an easy way to enjoy your next dinner out and stick to your diet. All you have to do is stick with these three tips: 

  • Know how to read the menu.  Adjectives like sizzling, creamy, rich and juicy literally make our mouths water! But you’re less likely to be influenced just knowing this information.

  • Don’t order your dressing on the side! The serving of dressing the restaurant would normally put on your salad may look skimpy served separately - so they’ll send out more, which could add up to 200 more calories! If you do ask for the dressing on the side, take two tablespoons worth and send the rest back.

  • Pay in cash! In a survey of 100,000 restaurant purchases, people who paid with a credit card spent 30% more on average.
