Eating out tip

One of the biggest problems of eating out is portion size. One way to make sure you don't over eat is to ask for a to go box with your meal so you can take half (or more) off your plate before you even start eating.

Eating out tip

Or split it with your better half if that's an option.

That's one we use often with success. Will use the method MWhyte suggests when I don't feel like cooking the next day

2nd that, we often share meals when we ride. No sense in taking leftovers on the bike. Plus we are both always trying to lose weight, or else I am giong to need to get new shocks-LOL

If you're going to a sit-down joint, most will make some modifications to the standard plate if you ask. Instead of having your salad piled with croutons and cheese, you can ask to have them left off - maybe substitute with some additional fresh sliced veggies, and go for the balsamic vinaigrette or oil/vinegar dressing. Instead of rice or potato to go with that grilled chicken, ask for some veggies. Stuff like that.
On portions, the key is to eat what can fit in the palm of your hand.

I've never had a plate of food in front of me that I couldn't eat. I'd like to split it with my wife at times but there is a real issue at hand. She's a vegetarian and I'm a Carnivore!!
