    Thank you Hun, if imagine that's prob just more than half of the take away portion would you? Mind you I do find it very filling and would have it in it's own :) xx

    I guess it depends on the containers they use. I order a syn free chow mein from my local takeaway, I'm vegetarian and follow the green plan. So instead of using oil they use extra soy sauce so it's syn free :) love chow mein

    Same here. Ask for it dry fried. Also check how they cook the chicken - mine stir fry it so the syns are definitely not what SW quote. I still allow 7 for mine although it's probably lower.
