My friend DearSugar offered some great tips on keeping your diet in check while dating, and here's another one. When dining out with your significant other, a great way to prevent consuming a day's worth of calories in one sitting is to order one entrée and share it. But before your meal arrives, ask your server for two separate plates.
Just like it's a bad idea to eat straight out of the bag of tortilla chips, you don't want to eat right off the big plate of food. Scoop out a portion for yourself before you begin eating to help you keep tabs on exactly how much you're consuming. Do this every time you dine in or out together, and it'll help prevent weight gain while dating.
