When ordering a less-than-diet-friendly dish at Chinese takeout (Mu shu pork, anyone?) simply ask for it to be prepared using very little oil.
You can also save serious calories by replacing sides like shrimp fried rice with brown rice and boost your nutrition and fiber count by adding a side of steamed veggies.
By making these simple changes, you can spare a few calories for a fortune cookie: They’re only 20 calories each!
