    Since I’ve placed myself on a reduced calorie diet to lose weight, eating out is a big problem. Some restaurants have smaller portions e.g. Qdoba has their craft2 menu) but most places have gigantic meals that are more than half the calories allotted in my diet.

    Restaurants have to help re-educate their customers on what is proper portion size. Smaller portions benefits both parties. The customer receives a healthier meal and the restaurant reduces their food bill.
