Well... I've been hearing that word and I don't know what is the meaning? when do you use it?
"In order to" expreses "purpose". The purpose/reason for something .
Example: I will get up early in order to go to work on time.
"in order to go to to work on time" is a subbordinate clause that expresses purpose.
The negative form of "in order to" is "in order not to" .
Example: You have to hurry up in order not to miss the train.
Mohamed's right. I'm cutting down on chocolate in order to get slim = I'm eating less chocolate so I will become thinner. My sister is going to the gym in order to get back into size 10 jeans.... My sister is going to the gym so she is able to wear a smaller size.
