    Hi Sooshine, I think fish and chicken if they're grilled are pretty good choices. I would avoid anything with cream, cheese or butter. I think Lamb's quite high in points too. So the seabass you suggested seems a pretty good choice and sounds yummy! You said you've been saving points and I find that I can usually get away with one day eating more if I make it up on other days.

    Have a great night! :)

    Thankyou Suz1506 - I hope I can get away with it too :cross:. Unfortunately my weigh in is on Monday so not much chance of recouping points after sunday lunch :(
