Many restaurant menus feature 8-oz steaks (or bigger!). According to Canada's Food Guide a serving is just 2-½ oz. For women, 2 servings of meat or alternatives a day is recommended. Men should aim for 3 servings a day. One restaurant steak could be your meat for the day or two! When dining out, look for the smallest servings of lean cuts of meat, fish or poultry. Choose those that have been cooked by methods that require less fat such as baking, broiling, grilling, roasting and barbequing. And avoid high fat toppings such as creamy sauces, gravy and butter.
