- Restaurants typically dole out gigantic portions of carbs -- think pasta, bread, rice and potatoes. Don't finish everything -- just setting aside 1/2 a tennis-ball size of pasta will spare you 110 calories.
- One serving of fried rice has 460 calories on average. If you switch it with steamed rice (330 calories per serving), you'll shave 130 calories and substantial fat.
- At the restaurant, request the bread basket to be removed from the table as you're being seated. Each French bread roll that you don't spread with butter and nosh on while you wait for your dinner, saves you 100 calories.
