Say Yes to Steak

Red meat tends to get a bad rap, but when you order a lean cut, such as a filet or sirloin, it contains about the same calories as oily fish like tuna and salmon—especially when you consider portion size. "A lot of times, you'll be served an 8-ounce portion of salmon and a 5-ounce portion of beef," says Jackie Newgent, RD, author of "1,000 Low-Calorie Recipes." "Calorie-wise, the beef is better." Of course, the whole equation changes when either is served with even a little butter, oil, or sauce.

Solution: Ask the waiter to serve yours without. Better yet, request a side order of grilled lemon or lime for extra flavor.
