Dining Out - Save Half Your Portion Before You Eat




When ordering your food at a restaurant, ask for a To Go container at the same time. When your food (and the container) arrives, take half and put it away immediately.

More Information:

The benefits you gain from this approach:
1. You have a 2nd meal to enjoy later
2. You won't be tempted to eat "everything" at once.
3. You will have cleaned your plate just like "mom" wants you to!

    I do this. Otherwise I'll clean my plate without even realizing it. - by MSTALLINGS
  • Half, I can only eat a third so I have 2 or 3 meals for the week. I eat very small amounts and some people get upset with me but then they eat everything and more. They are also twice my size and I am not downing people but they always got on my case.
    Love Spark peopl. God bless you. - by CHATTIEGIRL
