Skipping This When You Eat Out Will Save Hundreds of Calories

Having a nice meal out can be a dieter’s nightmare| especially when you consider that many entr¨¦es can be more than a day’s worth of calories. But the main meal isn’t all you need to watch out for| says dietitian Julie Upton| MS| RD| of Appetite For Health. If you aren’t careful| you could be ordering appetizers that clock in at more than 800 calories| Julie warns.

What to do instead if you’re famished and can’t wait for your entr¨¦e? Julie suggests skipping the appetizers section altogether and opting for a side dish or a soup instead| which average around 250 calories. Go for healthy| produce-filled sides and broth-based soups to save big on calories.
