after effects of a meal out

G: 12st2lb
I had a birthday this week and ate out twice; once in an Indian restaurant and once in a bistro. I made the best choices I could but relaxed my own strict rules a bit. I did manage to refuse alcohol (if possible always drive the car wherever you go!)

Even with moderate choices,I know that the food had more fat, oil, sugar and salt than I have eaten in months. Consequently, I had quite an upset tummy -2nd day now. Has anyone else experienced this or do you think it's probably a bug?

It will put me off eating out in I while- I know that. Any advice appreciated.

Hi sweetie ;)

I find if I've been really strict & 100% that fatty food can make me feel awful, usually makes my skin go haywire & I get really dehydrated as well.

It could be the shock to the system or a bug - it's hard to tell. Just keep your fluids up & take care of yourself :) Hope you feel better.

After 2 weeks on SW EE i went out and had a burger, chips, pepper sauce and a pint. The next morning i woke up with what i can only describe as a massive hangover. I felt groggy didnt want to get out of bed took me 3 or 4 hours to shake it :)

I vote for for the shock to the system idea. Just drink loads of water and you will be back to normal within a day or two :) Feel better.

Thanks Charli

I feel much better now thank goodness.I met another slimmingworlder today and she said that fatty food makes her a bit queasy for a day or so. All the more reason to be good and stick to the plan eh?

I get weighed tomorrow and this will hopefully mean that 2 meals out won't have done any damage.

All the best

:confused: This is kinda putting me off a baguette with chicken, bacon bbq sauce and cheese. Had promised myself this as a treat with a friend next Friday night. Now I might stick to the plan :( Just doesn't seem as much fun
I feel exactly the same...... Even if I have one little thing it makes my stomach do sonersaults, it's a food hangover! Guess we have to stay away from the fat!
