I don't know about anyone else, but there are a few times when we go out to eat when I really wish the portion sizes were smaller, or even a little healthier!

I think it's hilarious that there isn't one single suggestion here yet!

Ruby Tuesdays
7 oz Petite Sirloin w/ mashed tatas & steamed broccoli = 561 calories for meal
9 oz Top Sirloin w/ same = 651 for meal

IHOP has several options and lists their calories on the menu for those items. I usually get the egg substitute, turkey bacon, and toasts. Two of each.

Wendys - Apple Pecan salad. I usually get the half salad and a bottled water. Sometimes I get the Baja but don't use any dressing with it.

Panara Bread
Half smoked turkey sandwich on country bread with black bean soup 390 calories. I usually get the apple for the other side and take it home to eat later. They're great b/c they list the calories on the board.

Olive Garden - apracot chicken plate. I LOVE their Zupa Toscana so much but it's so bad for me If I want that, then I'll just get that for my meal.

Chic Fila - grilled chicken salad or wrap with berry vinegrette (sp?). Once in a blue moon I may get a grilled chicken and fruit cup.

Waffle House - one waffle w/o the butter and egg substitute. I eat the egg first and usually only eat half the waffle. I sometimes get the strawberry topping, tell them to go lite on it, w/o the whipped cream too. No syrup with the strawberrys.

Pizza - think crust, light on cheese, with ham and pineapple

Japanese - Sushi w/o the fish. I have two veggie rolls )or one avacado roll & one cucumber roll) because I don't like fish. I typically have a side salad with the ginger dressing on the side. Yummy! If this isn't your cup of tea, try to just sub steamed rice (brown if you can) for the fried rice. This is great with teriaki (sp?) chicken at our local place.

Traditional mexican restaurant - I normally get the chicken fajitas, hold the tortillias, no cheese or sour cream, and eat the meat with onions & peppers, the rice, and the refried beans. We typically eat here for lunch and they don't give you the salad stuff, cheese, & sour cream on the lunch fajitas so that helps.

I avoid chinese buffets, or any buffet for that matter except the Ruby Tuesday salad bar, fast food at breakfast time,and places where I can't get nutritional info for.

This is what I get most of the places that we normally go. The most important thing is to have a plan in mind before you go. I almost always try to figure out where we are going before we leave so I can go online and look up the nutritional information.
