- Return the free bread and ask if you can have cut-up raw vegetables instead. (Do this four times in a three-week period and I've found most good restaurants learn the trick and automatically make that change every time they see you—if they see you at least once a week).
- Order oil and vinegar in separate containers and on the side for salad dressing, and put a little on (you have to do this; relying on the wait staff or chef to do so gets you about 400 extra calories per side salad).
- If you're going to have dessert, order one for the table and have a few bites.
