Does your restaurant meal count equal or exceed 6 a week -- the national average? Add them up. Don't forget meals eaten in or taken out, count that cup of java and nibble in the am, grab and eat-on-the-run lunch or afternoon pick me up!

Americans down a third of their calories away from home and fruits, vegetables, low fat dairy foods and grains are often missing in action. True, restaurant meals make eating quick and easy. So, mastering menu minefields will be a key to your weight control success!

Join Hope Warshaw, MMSc, RD, as she shows you how simple changes and a few tips skim fats and trim calories at Starbucks.

Tricks 'N Tips to Eat Right at Starbucks

- Lighten up on the fat content in your whitener (from half and half to whole milk). Let your palate aclimate and lighten up more (from a mix of whole and fat-free milk).

- Switch to sugar-free syrup to save about 80 calories per grande portion. Choose pink, yellow or blue (a low calorie sweetener) instead of white (sugar).

- Check out the Frappuccino Light menu - choices have about half the calories of their regular cousins.

- Craving an indulgent drink? Apply portion control. Choose "tall" (12 ounces) rather than "grande" (16 ounces) or "venti" (20 ounces).
