    Calorie Counting for now
    I have a friends birthday meal out coming up, and she has chosen to do a chinese buffet. I cant trust myself to eat from the buffet sensibly (chinese is my favourite and i will find it hard to resist all my favourites and pig out!!)

    So i am going to order from the a la carte menu. I am planning to have a small breakfast and an apple or something tiny for lunch to save the calories for dinner.

    I am thinking around 700-1000 calories, any ideas what I should go for? I was thinking possibly chicken satay skewers and egg fried rice? When on weight watchers it was easy to google points for chinese but i have no idea in terms of calories!

    Gonna try and avoid battered/crispy things, but obviously sauce is going to be quite heavy on cals too. What do you normally have from the chinese?

    I dont eat any seafood and usually go for some kind of chicken option so any ideas or suggestions would be great!!

    thanks

    thanks for that link its amazing!
    i am thinking i might just have the night off but be reasonably sensible with the buffet, as ive been so strict the past 4 weeks and have already gone from 10st 3 to 9st 9 :)
