Written by a nutritionist with extensive knowledge of ethnic foods, this indispensable guide to restaurant dining is divided into three parts. Part 1 describes common problems faced by dieters when eating out and offers practical solutions. Part 2 discusses in detail French, American, Italian, Mexican, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, and Greek cuisines, listing healthy, low-calorie dishes to order and unhealthy, fatty, or salty dishes to avoid. Part 3 recommends ordering special meals when flying (at no extra cost) and provides a plan to help minimize jet lag. The author urges diners to order with confidence and not to feel intimidated when asking for the foods and preparation methods they need to eat healthfully in restaurants. Since most people eat out about 500 times a year and are frequently on some kind of diet, this informative book will be popular in public libraries.
