    Yeah a lot of restaurants have great diet menus. I just used Chilis cause thats where my friends and I eat a lot. I used to eat at Famous Dave's a lot but, well if you have ever been to Famous Dave's you gotta pig out. Protein is great, I eat these beans. I think they're soybeans(Edinami I believe is what they're called) They are supposed to be rich in protein and they are cheap. Thats prolly the toughest part of eating right is its expensive.

    Are they giving you a reasonably accurate macronutrient tally for the portions you're getting?

    I just try to eat the smallest portion possible.

    The question remains, though... what's in that portion? How many grams of fat, carbohydrate, and protein? The food industry as a whole tends to be very creative in terms of how they market foods as "healthy", so don't accept their claims unless you've got the full picture of nutritional information.

    Also, in terms of trying to lose weight, it's often preferable to eat a larger portion of a less calorie-dense food than a smaller portion of a more calorie-dense food, all else being equal. The less calorie-dense food should make you feel fuller for the same number of calories, thereby warding off hunger.

    I guess my new strategy of only ordering mozzarella sticks instead of meals isn't going to work out as well as I thought it would.

    They only give you like six of those.

    I have lost 15 pounds since I started this thread. I've been following the food pyramid. My breakfast is whole grain cereals and fruit, lunch is mostly wheat breads, nuts, vegetables and fruits. Sometimes small meat portions. Dinner is meat portions (mostly chicken or lean meats), vegetables and whole wheat pasta or soup. I drink water, green tea and 2% milk (post workout). I will allow myself some snacks, but controlled amounts and to keep from binging.

    It also helps my boxing coach makes me weigh myself almost every day.
