Diet Tip: Take Your Own Takeout Container

Everyone loves a nice meal out. Food just seems to taste better when someone else prepares it.

While it is fine to indulge occasionally, the humongous portion sizes at many restaurants can lead to serious overeating. Here's an idea to try. Bring a reusable plastic container with you when you go out. Just stash it in your fashionably large purse. Bringing you own container is not only good for the planet, but you can easily shrink your meal to a reasonable size before you take your first bite. Wrap up half your meal and then dig in. Then you can feel free to enjoy what's left on your plate and know that you'll feel satisfied but not stuffed. What's another plus? You'll have lunch already made for the next day.
