    I can't find my eating out guide (the house is a tip) and was wondering about chippy meals as they have been mentioned on the treat thread.

    A couple of the girls in my class said that they have VEGGIE chow mein, and it's only 4 POINTS !!!
    Does this sound too low? I just can't imagine eating a huge plate full of chippy meal and it only costing the same or less than a ww frozen meal.

    Also, how realistic are the points values when it comes to takaways, I just can't see how ww would know how much grub my local chippy will dish up compared to a chippy the other side of the UK... and yet they are given the same point value...(or I think they are) are the points values realistic do you think (chippy meal wise)? Do chippys all use the same 'portion' guide line?

    Nope that's about right, prawn chowmein is about 3.5, king prawn chow mein 5, chicken and char sui about 7.5, beef chowmein about 8. I think special chowmein is 7.5/8. if i am being a big pig i get a portion of mixed veg too as a side.. I don't know how many points that is but I always put it down as 3. i've lost 35lbs since January and have a chow mein every week :D

    I think the eating out guide is pretty good.. they might be wrong give or take a couple of points but I wouldn't worry about it... I've never had any problems following the points they allocate for things.

    Yeah I think you have to remember that the points are just an estimation really, some things are maybe slightly higher than they should be and others are less, so it should balance it out..plus as they are supposed to be eaten in moderation it won't affect your weight loss.

    I've always used the points in the guide and it hasn't affected my loss so eat up ;)
