"Get a doggie bag before the meal and put in a portion of the food when it is first served."
I went on a date with my hubbie last night, our first alone since the birth of our firstborn son. We went to Olive Garden since a friend had given us a gift card. I ate more salad and only one breadstick. When my capellini pomodoro arrived for dinner, I immediately asked for a to go box and put in four cups of the dinner, leaving only one cup for that evening. Instead of inhaling 840 calories, I consumed 168 calories of a fantastic pasta dish. I didn't feel over-stuffed and even halved the lowest calorie desert with John. I ended up with a little over 600 calories total for dinner, more than I normally would eat. But, it was a once a month date night and I didn't consume too many calories for the entire day.
