- BE ASSERTIVE WHEN DINING OUT: Quiz your waiter about how a dish is prepared, and don't be shy about asking the chef to prepare something without sauces or extra fat. These days, many chefs are willing to do just that.
- PUSH YOURSELF TO TRY AT LEAST ONE NEW FRUIT OR VEGETABLE PER WEEK: You'll be treating yourself to a new taste sensation and a variety of nutrients - and you'll be helping to expand your culinary repertoire in a healthy, low-calorie way.
- QUIT THE CLEAN PLATE CLUB: If you get out of the habit of finishing what's on your plate - and stop eating when you're pleasantly satisfied, instead - you'll spare yourself loads of unnecessary calories at every meal.
