As Science of U suggestss, sometimes you might let your friends pick what to eat:
I started doing that when I learned that agonizing over decisions can be stressful. And in the restaurant scenario, the consequences of what you eventually choose are not that different from a different option you might have chosen.It's never backfired — I always select people who I believe have my best interests at heart, and who know I need lots of protein. I don't really ever dine alone, but I do often ask the staff for their recommendations.
