    hi guys just a quickie..!!

    When I go out 4 dinner now I try and choose the lower kcal option, but a lot of the time its gonna be over 600kcals and I'll want a glass of wine etc etc. As a one off I dont see it as a problem...

    My question is, when u guys go out 4 dinner of an evening do u do SF during the day? My view is that if I know I will be eating more than 600kcals for dinner ive already gone against SF rules, and the shakes will be more than a salad. So I might as well have "normal" food but be good eg have a salad 4 lunch, snack on fruit and then go out 4 dinner..

    Do u do SF and eat out, or do u for go sf and stick to healthy food if eating out?

    If I know I'm going out, I wont SF for the day, I'd just have little snacks to keep me going and then I try to have a lower calorie meal. Then I just jump back on the next day.

    If i know im going out for dinner i carry on as normal, have shake for breakfast, meal bar for lunch. i tend to leave out the snacks so i have 300 extra calories to play with when im out.

    I slimfast as normal and then just try and choose as healthy as I can when i'm out. But I try not to allow myself to use it as an excuse to throw caution to the wind and try to stop eating when i feel full etc.

    Thanks that's helpful to me too as I have a few nights out planned over the next few weeks. I guess alcho pops arent too good? Unfortunately Im a light weight and can't manage anything too strong (maybe thats due to having to get up to 4 kids!!) Any suggestions?

    I guess we'll all find our own routine to cope with eating out :)

    Clarkey.. my teeth are tingling already at the thoughts of all that sugar in the alcopops... how do you drink that stuff lol? I'm a vodka, dash of lime and soda girl myself but haven't had a drink since xmas cos I find i just get soooo hungry with booze and crave sugar the next day.. easier for me to stay off it.

    Well pre my last child I could drink for England but not anymore, I like the sound of the vodka lime and soda as I often drink lime and soda as a soft drink anyway, cheers!! Yes the alcohopops do make your teeth feel like chalk!!
