When I go out to eat with my wife, we agree on a selection and always split one dinner between the two of us. If we're in a nice place, we request a "kitchen split" and pay the fare.

For us, one American dinner is usually two or three dinners for us. So even splitting one dinner, we still slightly overeat.

I'm 6-1 and weigh 185. My wife is 5-6 and weighs 135.

We seriously watch what we eat -- especially in restaurants.

We do the same kind of thing, except we are crass enough to ask for a doggie bag (We don't have a dog.) We ate at one of our regular restaurants Thursday, and I got two of the hugest pork chops I ever saw. I ate part of one of them, took the other home. Still to much for me to eat.

We also took half the order of asparagus home.
