You're sitting at the table in a restaurant with a friend, or maybe a significant other when the waiter comes up and offers you a dessert menu. You don't need a menu. You know exactly what you want to order.
The only problem is you're near the end of your calorie budget and you know you don't need the extra fat and calories from a dessert- even if it is your favorite.
Your dining partner, however, is not concerned and decides to order what you wanted to order.
You decide that it wouldn't hurt too much if you just had a bite or two of the dessert. After all, that's something you've seen suggested just about everywhere when you look at how to eat out on a diet.
There's only one slight problem.
You know the nutritional information for the whole dessert. You can divide it in half if you and someone else split it down the middle.
But how do you track that bite or two of the dessert that you have to give yourself a taste without blowing your healthy eating?
