social eating..........

Saturday, March 19, 2011

We are empty nesters who love to go out with friends and we always end up at a restaurant, I don't want everyone to know I am watching my calories and I don't want to pay for food I don't love, and that is a big problem! How do other manage this?

    I go online and check out the menu in advance. Most good restaurants have menus with nutritional information these days. I select what I will have before I go and automatically cut my entree in half and ask for a to go box. If anyone says anything, I say I am just not feeling that hungry right now and would rather have the rest of it later. Also, it gives me another meal to enjoy and saves me money!

    It's hard! We love to go out to eat and sometimes, in spite of my good intentions, I eat it all. I try to only eat half and ask for a take home box for the other half. I will sometimes order Ala Crate and order light things. Mostly it depends on where we are eating and the mood that I am in. Good luck!
