    Hi guys,

    I'm off to uni next week and so my family are treating me to dinner before I leave. However, I need to pick a restaurant with healthier choices so I don't go over my points.

    Preferably not Yo Sushi or Pizza Express as I've been quite recently, but yeah, any menu suggestions?

    Thanks in advance! :D

    a nice pub carvery i think!!!!! its not too bad on points as all you have to count is your meat and potatoes !!!!,and it fills you up all day,and you can eat all the veggies you want!!!! some carvery's iv been to even do a low fat sorbet for afters!!!XXX when i go for a carvery i just avoid yorkshire puds and i use to vegetarian gravy(guessed it would be lower) have a nice meal hun xxx

    Ooooh! Great suggestions! I'm liking the sounds of a carvery or Nando's! I haven't have a meal with proper meat in it for ages!!!

    Thanks!

    no problem at all, Starlight has put a eating out section at the top of the points area as a sticky, all in there are main places eat out or snack at and links to websites telling you all the nutrition information you need to work out their points :) if what your looking for isn't on there just let me know or type uk lady luck into google (sorry can't put link on here anymore for legal reasons :) ) but everything is on there, though would double check if you can on a few things as sometimes the values have changed since the site was updated etc :) enjoy xx
