Turns out it’s not so much what you order, but when. The run up to Christmas brings plenty of chances to overindulge, but if you’d like to save yourself for a mega feast or two and make healthy choices in the meantime, there’s an easy way to manage temptation: if you order your food an hour or more in advance of eating, you consume fewer calories than if you order immediately before, a US study has found.
