Chinese takeaway - points values

#1
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 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 :)

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!!
