| 3. Nutrition Tip – Restaurant “Value”
Big restaurant portions typically shatter any healthy limit for fat and calories at a single sitting. Don’t feel you’re wasting your money if you can’t eat it all — eat half, wrap up the rest, take it home, and make it a second meal later. If there’s a lot left over, ask your server to put the food into two take-home containers and make more than one extra meal out of it. Or, if you know your eyes are bigger than your stomach, ask to have half your portion wrapped up to take home before it ever reaches the table, so you won’t even be tempted to eat it all in the restaurant.
