Fill The Doggie Bag First Before Eating At Restaurants!

This Sparked Me!

Restaurants serve too much food at once and if left on the plate I would eat too much while talking to my family or friends. I learned to ask for the doggie bag first and put everything that was over my serving size into it. Most places no longer have bags but 3 sectioned containers. Now I take my own container. Last time some friends & I went to a good restaurant we all filled our containers first and then had a healthy satisfying meal with great portions!
