When choosing an entree--look for words such as "broil", "bake", "steam", "roasted", or "marinara". Usually this indicates the preparation methods use little fat.
When ordering meats, choose "round" or "loin" cuts, which have less saturated fats.
Choose salad, soup or steamed vegtables for an appetizer.
Order pasta with a vegtable marinara sauce.
Drink lots of water with a twist of lemon.
When selecting desserts order angel food cake, fresh fruit, or sherbet.
