Yes, you can still go out, enjoy great food but not feel weighed down afterward. How?
- When ordering, look for these key words: steamed, poached, boiled, baked, broiled and grilled — and go ahead and box up half your entree to keep portion sizes under control.
- Drink a bottomless glass of water — not only cost-free but calorie-free.
- Go ahead, order a dessert — but make sure it’s fruity.
- If movies are on the agenda, plan out snacks ahead of time, like fruit, pre-cut veggies, or air-popped popcorn.
