    Post Best option for takeaways ??

    Hi everyone

    I`m wondering if anyone can recommend the best options for takeaway ? Saturday is our "treat night" which usually consists of a takeaway and I am petrified that the 4lb Ive lost will creep back on...Any tips or suggestions would be really helpful

    Chinese is good! Your boiled rice is free, and if you're doing Extra Easy you can get chicken or beef in blackbean sauce for 5 syns. If you have the Food Optimising book, there is a take away section near the back.

    My favourite takeaway is Indian, and I usually have one each week. I get Chicken Jalfrezi which is 8.5 Syns per 350g. Boiled rice is free, and then I also order a salad with it to keep my SuperFree up.

    As coughdrops said, Chicken or Beef in Black Bean sauce is a good option from the Chinese. A 360g serving is 5 Syns.

    You really do need to make sure you are measuring your portions with anything you get from the takeaway. Portions are usually a LOT bigger than you think. I know that my Chicken Jalfrezi is roughly half of the carton it comes in, but I still always weigh out 350g to protect my weight loss. Most takeaway measurements / Syn values are listed on Syns Online if you need to check - the problem with the food optimising book is it doesn't give you the portion size.
