    Need help with chinese takeaway!!

    Hello

    My family are all meeting up tonight and ordering a chinese. I eat anything and lots of it. Can you give me some ideas of syn values for different chinese dishes and what a good combination of low syn dishes would be?

    I've only been doing s/w for a week and a half, don't want to put the weight back on that I've already lost!

    Thanks

    chicken chow mein is only about 7 syns on a green day. Avoid duck in pancakes and anything pastryfied such as pancake rolls. I usually have chicken and mushrooms/veg or chicken and pineapple with egg fried rice, although boiled rice is less fattening. Just don't pig out completely and enjoy your night out!


    This is my 4th attempt to get to target with SW!

    I agree with the chicken chow mein, that is normally what I have. I'll also have 2 pieces of sesame prawn toast... I think thats about 8 syns a slice... MMMmmmm x

    Overall weight loss (with SW and WW)

    i would go with green and have lots of rice and not so much of the main dishes, when i was travelling around south east asia last year all the people are tiny and this is basically how they eat

    i'd go green and fill up on plain or egg fried rice, then add chow mein (save a b choice for your chicken to free up more sins) and maybe add some of a mixed veg dish.

    if you fill up on these then you're less likely to start eating deep fried things, such as pancake rolls!
    keep on keepin' on!

    Go for the boiled rice rather than any fried ones. Apart from that I agree with the advice already given

    egg fried rice isn't too high in sins - and much tastier.

    i had a mushroom chow mein for dinner last night - then beans on toast a few hours later as i was hungry again! it was all legit though!
