Lauren Conrad said, also can eat lean Oh in the restaurant!

Lauren Conrad posted some of her summer stay-slim secrets to her website today...they're all about how to eat well at restaurants, and I think a lot of us can relate!
As you know, restaurant portions can be ginormous. In fact, over the past twenty years: The size of hamburgers have grown by 23 percent; a plate of Mexican food is 27 percent bigger than it used to be; and sodas are larger by 52 percent. That is why it is simple to eat over you mean to--or need to.

Says Lauren: "I enjoy the taste of healthy food--salads, whole grains, lean meats, and lovely fats. and I have come to recognize that I can much order what I need at a restaurant as long as I keep my portions in check. If I need a few sweet-potato fries to go along with my grilled chicken salad at lunch, I will get them! But I make positive that I‘m aware of how plenty of I am eating. My largest challenge isn’t what I eat but how much of it I eat."

Makes sense, right? To keep her portion sizes at restaurants under control, here's what Lauren suggests:
●Split an entree along with your dining partner.
●Move a portion of your entree onto your bread plate and eat from there in lieu (research has shown that eating from smaller plates can help keep your appetite in check).
●Eat the portion of the entree that you require, then pass the rest over to the man you are dining with (what is up with guys and their metabolisms, anyway?).
●When you start to feel full, cease eating and give yourself ten to 15 minutes to let that fullness sink in. Talk to your dining companion, or if you are by yourself, walk around the house. In case you still feel hungry after those ten to 15 minutes are up, "I know that I can eat a small bit more without getting stuffed," says Lauren.

Ooh, I like that last tip--it's so simple to eat and eat until you get that "I wish I was one time wearing sweatpants" feeling. What do you think? How do you keep your portions under control at a restaurant?
