Prepare for Eating Out

If you know you're going to be eating out, download the nutritional info from the restaurant's website the day before. Then make 1-2 "safe" choices, or take the info with you. If you choose restaurants at the last minute, keep a file folder with the nutrition info pdf's in your car.
