Robyn offers these tips for eating healthier when ordering in or taking out:
1. Order extra so you have leftovers, but make sure not to eat it. According to the study, more than half of females between ages 30-34 purchase more food than they plan to eat when ordering delivery so that they have leftovers.
2. In your special instructions, ask the restaurant to hold the bread. The study found that people are significantly more likely to waste calories on bread while dining in a restaurant. Taking away the temptation allows you to enjoy your meal and watch your waistline.
3. Save some calories by selecting the healthier options. The study found that almost 50 percent of survey respondents have asked for healthier substitutions for dinner. Take the healthier options, like "dressing on the side" or "brown rice" that are already pre-populated for you.
