Americans eat out now more than ever and this is likely not to change. Here are some tips in eating out:

Don’t skip a meal on the day you are going out to eat
Eat a light snack (e.g. an apple, an orange, or a slice of low fat cheese) an hour or so before the meal thus avoiding overeating
Choose a restaurant that offers a variety of food including low fat options
Order more plant based foods – pick salads and deserts that emphasize fruits or vegetables; look for whole-grain pasta, bread, rice, and
Order baked, not fried; grilled, not greasy
Ask about substitutions of lower fat, lower carbohydrate food as side dishes
Taste your food before adding salt, butter, sauces, or
Order on the side of your salads
Substitute healthier condiments such as mustard for mayonnaise, or pepper or lemon juice instead of salt
Resist the desire to “supersize” your meals
Make the salad your fist course with plenty of veggies and fruit
Eat slowly
Order food that requires work such as crab legs
Order water, sparkling water or mineral water with a twist of lemon – it’s filling and has no calories (most insist on at least 8 glasses of water per day for a reason!)
Finish the main disk before you think about ordering desert
For dessert consider lower-fat, lower-calorie options such as fresh fruit, or sherbet
