Health Tip: Eat Smart
Don't overdo it at a restaurant

(HealthDay News) -- To avoid overloading on an enormous restaurant portion, follow a few basic principles to chow on a more reasonable serving size.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture offers this advice:

  • Order small or medium portions for any appetizers, sides, drinks and main courses.
  • Order a menu item, versus opting for a buffet meal.
  • Choose an appetizer or side dish instead of an entree for your meal, or split an entree with a friend.
  • If you order an entree, ask for a doggy bag and immediately put half away before you start eating.
  • Ignore the "clean plate club" rule, and stop eating when you're full.
