Trimming Calories at Lunch

  • At the pizza place, order a thin-crust, vegetarian, with little or no cheese.

  • Substitute fat-free chips or pretzels for corn or potato chips in your brown-bag lunches.

  • Try low-fat cottage cheese topped with dried, herb-blend seasonings or a handful of raisins.

  • When you have to have a burger, order the smallest, plainest one on the menu.

  • Starting with a salad? Request a low-fat dressing on the side.

  • Make your sandwich with lean roast beef instead of corned beef. Use mustard instead of mayonnaise.
