Thought for the Day--January 19, 2011: Considering the Context When Eating Out

The takeaway from this week's Weight Watchers' meeting: When going out to eat, consider the context. For example, Is this primarily a social or business event? OR Is this an eating event? Either is okay, but how you approach the event will depend on the context. For a social or business context, the food itself is less important than socializing with your companions, so you might not need to use a lot of your extra PointsPlus for the event. However, sometimes we go to a restaurant because of the food. In that case, it's okay to focus on the food by using your extra points. NOTE: If you're not on Weight Watchers, it's okay. You can still go to restaurants just for the food-- Keep in mind, though, moderation in all good things.
