    My OH went out for chinese takeaway for his dinner tonight so I had a look in the eating out booklet for points values for me. Thing is, the points seemed really really low, so I wasn't sure how it was pointed (ie, for the whole portion or for part?), does anyone know?

    I really wanted Singapore Rice Noodles and according to the eating out book they are only 5.5 points 'per portion'!! But what is the portion size...the whole thing?!

    I believe the portion is per serving. I was surprised at how low some things are too. Thats why I have Chinese as my treat ;)

    I was hoping you'd post a reply Starlight, as I know you have chinese as a treat at the weekends...and I can now see why!

    So, am I right in thinking that you believe the points in the eating out guide to be for the whole tub of food? If so then I am a very very very happy girl! :D

    Marie sorry I took so long to reply but I was at my parents last night and not online a lot. It says in the WW Eating out book that many chinese dishes are low in fat.

    When I was going to WW classes I asked the leader about it and she assured me that a portion was as youd expect - the whole thing. ie Spare Ribs portion the whole lot you get in the long take away tray.

    Thats why I have Chinese, I actually stay within my points but it feels like SO much. Last week I actually had Ribs AND chicken fried rice ;)

    So keep Chinese in mind if youre struggling and hubby wants a take away - its so much better than Indian or Pizza :)

    Wow! That must have taken you ages to type up!! Thats going to be SO helpful, I expect loads of folk will make good use of it :)

    Actually now that I think about it, would it be helpful to have this as a 'sticky' thread and have it pinned to the top of the page?

    I don't know for sure, but if I were you I would go for the higher - just to be on the safe side.

    I don't think that i should have read this, cause if i have a takeaway it would be a Chinese and now it put me off but may be a good thing.

    Low! Low! I like Pork Fried Rice, Curry Sauce and Chip, sometime spare rib that i share with my mum.
    An the Egg Fried Rice a loan is 10 so i would hate to know what it is if you add the pork and the rest of the stuff!!
