I make it a practice when I go out to eat, I always ask for water, I drink water while I am looking at the menu then when my food come I only eat half. After drinking water before I am already full. I take my doggie bag home for the next day.

I read an SP article that suggested ordering half the meal to go as soon as you order. Most of the time I get more than half on my plate AND more than half in my "doggie bag." I end up eating most of what is on my plate, and putting the rest in my already almost full doggie bag. I end up savoring each bite, and drinking lots of water. The next day I eat half of the doggie bag, & have another half for another meal. I get at least 3 meals for the price of one! Thank you SP!! 252
My thing is that when I am out to eat, I ask for a "doggie bag" up front and put half of my meal into it even before I start eating.. This keeps me from over-eating. When I get home I can weigh and measure what is left over and get a good idea of what to log onto my Tracker for the meal I ate.
