When Dining Out

Make dining out a pleasure, even if you’re watching what and how much you eat. Just keep these pointers in mind:

  • Arrive on time for your dinner reservation so you won’t forced to wait in the cocktail, drinking and nibbling. If you want a cocktail, drink a single glass of dry wine, spritzer, or light beer slowly so it lasts through the cocktail period and into dinner. For non-alcoholic refreshment, sip a glass of no-calorie club or mineral water with a wedge of lemon or lime.
  • Start your meal with a soup, fresh fruit cup or fruit or vegetable juice. Avoid creamed soups and heavily sauced pasta appetizers. When ordering a salad before dinner, ask for it minus the dressing, with a low-calorie dressing on the side, or with a lemon wedge.
  •  If the restaurant has a salad station, choose your meal around an appetizing, nutritious assortment of greens and fresh vegetables. But watch out for those tempting toppings and calorie-laden dressings. Substituting a squeeze of fresh lemon or vinegar and a sprinkle of fresh pepper for the usual dressing helps you keep your salad meal within your calorie limits.
  • Since serving sizes in restaurants are often very large, consider ordering a hearty appetizer or a baked potato along with a small salad for your entrée. Otherwise, select your main dish from the baked, boiled, or poached poultry, fish or lean-meat specialties. Ask how gravies and sauces are prepared. If they’re made with butter or cream, request that they be served separately
  • Inquire about low-calorie, low-fat and low-salt items if you don’t see them on the menu. Fresh fruit, too, is generally available but often not listed. Many restaurants today are recognizing customer interest in light eating and are expanding their offerings.
