Appetizer Advice Skip the bread basket, especially if you are ordering something to start Just scan the appetizers looking for healthier options. Personal favorites: broth-based soup (studies show people who start meals with soup eat fewer calories overall at that meal), Shrimp cocktail, Steamed clams Green salad (vinaigrette dressing).

Main Meal Management Things to avoid: anything fried, dishes with lots of cheese, pasta, and anything super-saucy. Better choices: grilled meats or fish, and steamed dishes. Sides: stick with veggies over starches. ask to substitute a salad as as starter for one of the sides
Dessert NEVER ORDER YOUR OWN! Share dessert with the table Have coffee or a night cap over dessert: Saving that second glass of wine for after dinner can save you calories over having dessert Have coffee to cure that craving for something rich Save dessert for another night: Don’t over-do-it, save some of that wiggle room for another night. Stop for ice cream or frozen yogurt, order a junior. Keep things simple: The more decadent the description, the higher the calories
