    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 :confused::confused::confused:

    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.
