I can’t say that I was terrifically well-behaved in this place, but I found ways to control my portions so that my outfit for the getaway wedding I went to would still fit. Check out my whole review of Florida Cracker cafe here.
These are the views surrounding the Cafe, and of the food. Again, this challenge was about portion control, so here is what I did.
Tip 1: We ordered exactly what we wanted. Depriving ourselves from ONE bite, may turn into binging on everything else.
Tip 2: We each had 2 Fried Green tomatoes and agreed to take the rest. We split each sliver in half and used as much mustard as we wanted.
Tip 3: I only are the things from the salad that I truly wanted, namely, the cucumbers, carrots and shrimp. Fried shrimp, not coconut- but the regular kind- is surprisingly low in calories, at around 300 cals a portion. So far, so good.
Tip 4: When dessert came *my companion wanted it* I managed to take 4 spoonfuls. After a while, I realized that restaurant portions are almost unsafe for any human consumption. Little by little you get to realize that. We took the rest to the Air BnB.
Tip 5: While I do not advocate in favor of any medication for behavior control, some people do need it. If you can benefit from an all-natural appetite control aid, use it. It is best to curb hunger when overeating may do more damage.
Also, walking around while you are on vacation does wonders. Take a hike, take a walk and dance the night away. All of it works!
