Regularly eating out can result in consuming hundreds of unwanted calories in a sitting, but luckily, there are many ways to save calories when you eat out. A 2012 study found that these strategies do, in fact, work; people eat fewer calories when they dine out if they regularly put a few mindful eating tips into practice. In the study, the group that regularly attended an intervention course, which included classes focused on education, tips, and meditation, ate about 300 fewer calories than before studying mindful eating and ate fewer calories overall than the control group, who didn't have access to these resources.
We've got the details of some of the best calorie-saving tricks, including a few learned in this study, for dining out. Read on for the tips, and let us know if you do these things when you eat out!
