This Sparked Me!

When you sit down at a restaurant, immediately order tea. It will give you something to do so you won't be focused on the bread basket when it comes.

    You could also ask that they not bring a bread basket to the table. (Not that I have EVER done that!) :)

    I like this i am going to limit myself on how much bread i eat

    This is a good idea. I put a little artificial sweetener in my tea, and it's a real treat! I also place the bread basket out of my reach, and sometimes out of my sight. Out of sight--out of mind. It has worked pretty well for me. No cheddar bay biscuits at Red Lobster, no bread sticks at Olive Garden, etc.

    Planning to do that every time I'm at one of those restaurants.

    I'm all about distracting myself to a better place without restricting others around me. Cool idea.
