Restaurant meals can be deceptive and pose a special challenge to healthy eating.
"Even meals you think are healthy in restaurants are loaded with calories because of cooking methods that add a lot of fat and sodium, so ask to have foods prepared as light as possible to avoid extra calories," Lee suggested. ...
