Self Control when Eating Out: I Have None. Please Help Me

 Self Control when Eating Out: I Have None. Please Help Me

I have a problem. A big problem. I can’t control myself when I eat out. My food pyramid looks like this: steaks, anything with cheese, bread and butter, desserts and of course, a nice glass of red wine. If I’m fortunate (or unfortunate) enough to be traveling on business, the problem is even worse because I order everything I see (since I’m not paying for it), and end up cleaning my plate.

 Self Control when Eating Out: I Have None. Please Help Me

I over indulge, so not to waste anything. And I order everything because I want to try new foods. It’s a vicious cycle. And when I’m on a long, traveling stretch. I’m dining out 2-3 times a day, which is not healthy in the long run.

 Self Control when Eating Out: I Have None. Please Help Me

 The problem is, I can’t stop. I have no self-control. Help me dear readers. What’s the best way to prevent over-eating while traveling? How can I stop myself from ordering fatty foods, eating every morsel and repeating the process?

OH my gosh, I have had an insatiable hunger ALL NIGHT and then I saw the photo of that cake and I can’t stand it any longer. I have some chocolate stashed away, and now, thanks to you, I’ve got to go find it!

Hahaha, you see what I mean now? I can’t help buy eat dessert when they bring the menu out. It all looks so good!

This is an interesting dilemma. I just stop when I get full, which means I usually take about half of my meal home. But I very much share the belief in not wasting anything!

It’s tough taking a meal home when you travel since there’s sometimes no fridge or microwave to heat it up.

One way to cut down on your portions would be to invite friends – say two guys from the left coast – to join you. I can promise we could set aside our manners and fight you for every bite!
