5. Salads. Round out any meal with a “side” or “garden” salad. Some full-meal salads are good options, but croutons and other nonvegetable toppings can quickly pile on the calories. As always, get your dressing on the side.

6. Vegetable soup or chili. These are usually filling and relatively low in fat and calories—but not always; check the nutrition information first.

7. The kid-size plain burger. This meat portion still satisfies, and it might even come with fruit or carrots.
