Eating out three meals a day, even once a week, is obviously messing up your goals. For most people, eating out for all three meals would be considered excessive. But, I understand that you want to spend time with your BF away from roommates.
If you MUST eat out for all three meals, I would pick ONE where you can eat what you like. The other two need to be healthy AND low calorie. I am talking 300 calories or so. Bring some light snacks with you so that you are not starving.
For the ONE meal that you allow yourself to eat whatever you want, follow these rules:
1. Stop when you are full.
2. If you want dessert, stop BEFORE you are full.
3. NO doggie bags. What you don't eat, stays at the restaurant.
Also, try to incorporate something active into your date. Such as:
Make part of your date a walk or hike. Maybe there are paddle boats you can both peddle and cruise around a lake. Ride a bike together.
