This tip comes from the Eat This, Not That! Restaurant Survival Guide:
Remind yourself that the waiter/waitress is a salesperson. A study published in the Journal of Retailing and Consumer Services found that you’re more likely to order a side dish when the server verbally prompts you. Like “Would you like fries with that?” But a medium order of french fries can add almost 400 calories to your meal!
So think twice the next time a server suggests an appetizer, dessert or drinks.
