Health Tip of the Day

Smart Meal Ordering

To keep a restaurant meal lower in calories, start the meal with water instead of ordering a soda, according to IDEA, an association of fitness instructors in San Diego. When you order a fast-food meal, avoid the temptation to super-size. Remember, the recommended serving size for meat and poultry is 3 ounces, or about the size of a deck of cards.
