Do you find it hard to resist those pre-meal all-you-can-eat tortilla chips that are served with salsa at most Mexican restaurants? Chips and other tasty appetizers can add plenty of calories to your meal.
One basket of restaurant tortilla chips, for example, can contain as many as 1,000 calories and up to 50 grams of fat. When dining out, try to carefully limit or even skip chips and other pre-meal snacks. To avoid temptation, try sipping on a non-caloric beverage such as water or iced tea as you wait for your meal.
