Dinning out can often be a problem because it is hard to control what foods will be served. That hot bread that comes as soon as you sit down can be so tempting and yet full of empty calories. One bite often leads to another, so avoiding it all together it the best idea.
Ask for a salad full of lots of yummy vegetables with the dressing on the side. Instead of pouring the dressing all over the salad, dip your fork in the dressing and take a bit of salad. It will provide just enough dressing to give flavor to the salad and it will control your hunger and help make you feel satisfied until the rest of the meal arrives.
