Dr. Oz says eating dinner backwards can actually help you lose weight. In Europe, most salads are eaten at the end of the meal, which Dr. Oz says is beneficial. "The salads stimulate those digestive enzymes. They have a lot of water in them and they physically fill you up, so you're less craving of desserts afterwards," Dr. Oz says. "The other thing is that salads have a little bit of sweet to them so you won't desire the dessert as much as a taste on top of that."

Still, most of us aren't eating European meals with many courses. Many people, like Eric, a 41-year-old salesman who travels frequently, only have time to grab fast food. Eric wants to know more about making healthy choices when fast food is his only option.

Dr. Oz says if you must eat fast food, there are three things you should keep in mind.

  • Avoid fried foods.
  • Avoid fattening salad dressings.
  • Be proud of a "doggie bag."
