The Hungry Girl's Dining-Out Survival Guide

You don't always have to cook to maintain a healthy diet. Just keep these healthy eating tips and strategies in mind when eating out and you can enjoy your favorite dishes without gaining weight.

Italian Food Tips

Chicken parmigiana over spaghetti is a favorite for many people, but it can easily contain an entire day's worth of calories and fat. Instead, order grilled chicken with marinara sauce and a small side of whole-wheat pasta: all the flavor, but it's a much healthier way to go.

Other great choices: Minestrone soup, steamed mussels or clams, baked or broiled fish, and steamed veggies.
