YOu are responsible for what you put in your mouth
I recently heard a friend say "my mother makes me eat rich food." Well, unless she had a gun to her head(she didn't) Mom didn't make her eat. Mom may have pressured my friend, but my friend ultimately made the decision to eat the rich food, instead of standing her ground and saying "no." No matter what pressure, or coercion someone uses, you are ultimately responsible for what you choose to eat.
Restaurant food is often very rich. If you go there while being totally starved, you'll eat the whole plate, would you? But if you eat a little bit BEFORE, you'll eat less and could even bring back some food home for another meal! :)
When it comes to eating, making a smart choice can be difficult. But when you are undecided about what to eat, remember you can enjoy healthy eating even more than all those chips, donuts, cookies, cakes, etc… Guilt will ruin your craving, while the happiness of eating the best choice will make you feel great, and finally but not less important, most of the time healthy food like fruits, vegetables and rich in fiber foods will make you feel fuller for longer time.
