    Cutting portion in half is a great idea.........I'll start doing this. I do often when I know I'm going out to eat I check nutritional facts prior to going..........especially if I know ahead of time

    I started doing this this summer when family came to visit. We always eat out when my parents are here. It really helps!

    To expand, If you can get nutrition facts ahead of time, you can plan which meal and size to buy. I often eat a little more than half at the restaurant for dinner and a little less than half for lunch.
