Many women routinely order salads at restaurants thinking it is the healthier choice on the menu. However, often times it is not. If you're watching your calorie intake and are craving a salad, request the dressing on the side and avoid cream or milk based dressings, which contain loads of calories and fat. A high sugar or high fat dressing or sauce can completely eliminate any calories you thought you were saving by ordering the salad. When dining out, ask your server about healthier alternatives to the menus. Many restaurants today have dishes that are prepared specifically for the weight-conscience. When in doubt, it is always wise decision to go with baked chicken, or fish and fresh vegetables.
