2. How to avoid junk when going out with family for lunches/dinner ?

I try not to eat pizzas, burgers or pastas. They are yummy hence tendency to eat more. Also, the universal fact, they are carbohydrates which lead to weight gain.I do not need to elaborate more on that right ?
I Start with a soup, maybe clear or veg soup. For starters I have stir fried or tandoori snacks. I always order a salad with low fat dressing. And in end, I have one chapati (tandoori) with any vegetable sabzi. I avoid dal and paneer with butter laden gravies. I also try to have a glass of hot water/green tea when I reach home.

4. I have marriage to attend what can I have ?

First and foremost, I have a fruit and glass of milk before I leave for any function. If possible I have my mini meal, which seems stupid to my loved ones but I don't worry about that, I just do my thing.
then follow the routine mentioned in point 2 above.

5. I am addicted to chocolate/or any sweet, how do I resist the temptation ?

I try and control the temptation for first time and divert my mind because once I have a bite of it I crave for more and then it is a vicious circle. Hence, it is all about mental strength here. If I give in once then there is no stopping and once I say No to it I get the will power to say No every single time it is offered to me.
