Secret number THREE
Is portion control, especially when you go out for a nice dinner, Now I know you want to enjoy yourself and you don’t want to be thinking about the number of calories you are eating and you also don’t want to settle for one of the “healthy” options on the menu.
The secret is you don’t have to, you simply have to think about the size of the portion you order. These days, most restaurants serve huge portions, and that’s where you can get yourself into trouble when eating out.
The secret to eating out, without spoiling your day, is to have your waiter control the portion size for you. It’s becoming much more acceptable for diners to ask for a portion of their meal to be served and the other half to be put into a doggy bag to take away.
The thing is, when you eat out, it’s easy to feel some guilt if you leave without cleaning your plate. You’re spending your hard-earned money on that food, and when you leave some food on your plate, your mind sees that as a waste of money. So if you have smaller portions you can eat everything on your plate and your subconscious mind feels pleased.
