If You Are Going To Be Eating Out Or Going To A Party, Try Eating

a serving of vegetables before you go if you can. Many restaurants serve large portions of the entrees but don't always include vegetables other than potatoes or a side salad. Parties and cookouts may not have a lot of healthy food available. By eating a veggie serving before going, you won't be so hungry when you arrive and can avoid bread baskets & less healthy options, and get a daily serving of veggies. You can take part of your entree home for lunch the next day if you want.

Afraid of going to a party because you might over eat? Go ahead and go. This is how I view parties. They are an opportunity to see friends and family; NOT A TICKET TO EAT EVERYTHING IN SITE. I either eat before I go or when I get to the party I fill my plate with healthy items and nibble on them. So go and enjoy yourself.=)
