2. Instead of eating the entire dinner portion, try splitting it in half, saving the other portion for later. Or, better yet, share a plate with your family.
3. Stick to healthy fare like fresh salads, grilled vegetables, and lean meats.
4. Stay away from fried or sautéed entrees because they have been cooked in oil or butter, making them calorically dense.
5. Before eating out, recognize your hungry levels. If you go to a restaurant so hungry you could chew your arm off, chances are you will be so hungry that everything will look (and taste) good, enticing you to eat more than your stomach can handle.
