    Evening All,

    Hope someone out there can help me, i'm desperate to keep my plan on track and tomorrow I am going out for a meal to our local Italian.

    I won't be drinking and so my syns will be purely eating wise.

    What would be the better options to go for?? I have to be careful as last time I went I was poorly almost straight after, I think it was all the oil etc when I never have any whilst on SW. :eek:

    I was thinking perhaps a pizza and try and work out the syns but what do you think???

    The best Italian dishes are pasta dishes that are tomato based, rather than creamy, e.g. arrabiata, which is relatively low in syns on all 3 plans - just count for the oil used. Pizza will be comparatively high in syns.

    Maybe a risotto and ask them to bulk it out with some vegetables?

    I did have the Arrabiatta int he end, a lovely spicey tomato based pasta, just a shame I had it with half a pizza and half a bottle of wine! Never mind, It was a lovely treat and i'm back on plan today!!
