Hungry Girl: Dining Out

Hungry Girl Dining-Out Tips

  • Ask that no sauce, oil or butter be used in your dish.
  • Order double veggies instead of a starch.
  • Do your homework. Call ahead or research the nutrition information online.
  • Don't trust yourself to doggie-bag half your entree? Ask if they offer half- or lunch-sized portions.
