Dining Out Tip

Monday, August 22, 2011

Here is a tip that I got in my email inbox today:

emoticon People consume more calories when dining with friends. Skip the seconds/dessert and opt for a cup of herbal tea after you finish your meal. It will keep your mouth busy while others get seconds. (paraphrased)

The tip was from the “Eat this, Not That” E newsletter. The following is the link to the article. #12 on the list is hysterical.

    Agreed, it's way easier to indulge when you have a little peer pressure going on! Once you get to the point where you can dine with friends and NOT give in to THEIR indulgences you are REALLY getting there! Great advice! emoticon
