Health Tip of the Day

Tips for Guilt-Free Dining Out

  • Eat a light, low-fat snack before ordering your meal.

  • Avoid all-you-can-eat buffets. You're likely to overeat to get your money's worth.

  • Approach the salad bar with caution. It's easy to load your plate with fatty extras and too many calories.

  • Don't be shy about making special requests.

  • Order your entree broiled, boiled, baked, stir-fried or served in marinara sauce.

  • When ordering red meat, opt for the leanest cuts.

  • Use condiments conservatively.

  • Watch what you drink. Alcoholic beverages are high in calories.

  • Leave enough food on your plate to take home a doggy bag.

  • Choose an alternative to rich desserts.
