A survey found that about 50% of men and 40% of women order take-out or delivery at least once per week, and they tend to order healthier foods than when they eat at a restaurant, according to a survey by Seamless. Registered dietitian Joan Salge Blake writes that healthy strategies for eating take-out include planning the order early, before hunger pains are urgent; limiting quantities; and buying only foods that cannot be made at home, such as an entree.
