I love the all-you-can eat Chinese as well. We go once a month because it's a treat for the children. My strategy is to fill my first plate with veggies, a pickle and some fruit, no dressing. I have to eat that before I can have anything else. My second, and final, plate, I can have anything I want, but it has to be within the bottom of the plate...not allowed to touch the rim of it, and it can only be one layer with a little bit of space between each food item. That way I can have the things I like, but it's still very portion controlled. We order water and green tea with the meal.
Swiss Chalet is also a great choice for eating out. I love their healthy chicken meal choice with two healthy sides....steamed veggies and garden salad are my favorites.
