First Time Eating Out

S: 13st1lb C: 12st0lb G: 10st0lb BMI: 30.7 Loss: 1st1lb(8.2%)
Hi everyone, I'm new to both the forum and Slimming World so don't really have a clue what I'm doing yet! Apologies if I get anything wrong!

My Mum is coming down this weekend and we will be going out for a pub meal. I have no idea what to eat! If I put a link to the pub menu could any of you give me a bit of advice and guidance please?

Thank you! :)

Link is:

Main Menu at The Churchillian - Portsdown Hill, Portsmouth

How about a steak but ask them if you can have a jacket potato and salad instead of the chips and onion rings:) I'm assuming your doing EE of course and welcome to the forum and SW:)

eeeeek......... thats not very SW friendly at all. Guess the steak would be ok if on EE, maybe ask to have it with a jacket potato instead of fries??
or a jacket potato with beans and cheese?

tbh, think i would just eat what i wanted and be good for the rest of the day and the week and i dont think it will hurt. enjoy your meal out with your mum We went out once a month and just ate what ever and i still continued with my 2lb a week loss.

Thanks everyone. I have chose such a dreadful week to start Slimming World. I feel really bloated as well, is that normal?

I think there's lots of things you could go for; pasta arrabiata, pasta with tom, chicken and mozzarella, omelette, smoked fish platter, chilli con carne, grilled meats. It seems to be all the accompanying chips and bread that will pose a problem but things like this should be easily swapped for salad or veg if you ask.
Enjoy :)

What a choice...

I think I would have to agree with the steak and ask for jacket pot and salad instead of all the usual accompaniments.

Whatever you want have it and enjoy and get right back on track after.

Something I do when I eat out and want to ask for something other than what is ´norm´is to say that I cannot eat fats for medical reasons - they soon conjour fat free food up without that knowing look that shouts ´you are on a diet`!!!!!
