Very good point!

Re going to restaurants, whenever possible, I too look at the menu online and choose a good option before I go. Or I'll have half a portion. I love Reuben sandwiches (800 calories - ). Now I only eat half the sandwich and have a green salad instead of fries. Still not the most healthful choice in terms of fat calories, but it's a treat and I feel completely satisfied with just half the sandwich. I know people who ask for a take home container when their order comes, and they immediately put half of their meal into it.
