Here’s my number 1 tip for staying healthy at a restaurant:
Be the first to place your order
Studies show we’re most likely to follow the tone set by the first person’s order. If they want fries, we’ll give ourselves permission to indulge too. Similarly, if they go for chicken salad, dressing on the side, we’re inclined to get strict with ourselves.
Ordering first gives you the opportunity to set a positive tone not only for yourself but for your friends too. Whether you’re in the mood to have something rich or want to eat really clean is not the point. What matters is you can decide what you’re truly in the mood for and own that choice.
Even better if you can place your order with total ease and peace with yourself – what a great vibe you’ll set for everyone else!
