Keep a Smaller Waist In Mind When Ordering Large Plates

Skip the Supersize and Order Down

If you're a fast food frequenter, you've probably heard the term "supersize" more than you'd care to admit. While obesity continues to grow as an epidemic, it seems the question we should be hearing is, "Would you like to minimalize that?" Since it's not given as an option at most eateries (doesn't exactly help the bottom line, right?), try posing the question to yourself before ordering your meal.

Instead of getting a large bowl of soup and a house salad, consider going down a notch from your usual size order. Ask for a small salad or sandwich or even an appetizer for your entree. Chances are, the smaller portion will satiate your appetite just fine. In addition to it filling your belly adequately, the smaller size is likely in tune with recommended portions and will save you a buck or two on the bill. Besides, if you are still hungry after the gobbled grub, you can always order more.
