  • You could also ask that they not bring a bread basket to the table. (Not that I have EVER done that!) :) - by TRAVELISMYGAME
    I like this i am going to limit myself on how much bread i eat - by BECKYLYNNE77
    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. - by DUPSTER
    Planning to do that every time I'm at one of those restaurants. - by 2RICKIE
  • I'm all about distracting myself to a better place without restricting others around me. Cool idea. - by LIZ-GS
