You're watching that waistline and those calories, but you're eating out tonight for a friend's birthday party. That does not necessarily mean that you have to undo all the good work you've been doing for the last few weeks.

Take action:
Ask the restaurant to serve margarine rather than butter with the meal and to use fat free milk when preparing your meal; ask the chef to trim all visible fat from poultry or meat; request that gravy, sauces and salad dressing be served on the side; select foods that are steamed, grilled, baked, roasted or lightly stir-fried; order a garden fresh salad.
