Dining Out!

When I know I am eating out I try and go to the restaurant's website's nutrition page first. If they do not have one I will most likely choose another restaurant that does. I have found that if I go without checking first I will consume more calories than I expect. I think I make healthy choices, but when I actually look it up, I have consumed about twice the calories and fat I had expected. Once I figure out what I will order, I plan the rest of my meals and snacks accordingly.
