I am getting more comfortable with eating out. Now that more of the chain restaurants have posted nutritional information on-line I have found it much easy to make meal choices. I have also learned that calling in my meal to the restaurant at least 30 minutes prior to arrival helps in assuring that I can eat my food almost as soon as I am seated.

Of course not all restaurants provide nutritional information and most of the menu items are a heart attack away from killing you ( high fat and high sodium) but in general I am having a much better experience than earlier.
