    I miss going out for meals - it's what my boyfriend and I really enjoy doing socially, but it's so hard to find places to go when you are on a diet. Has anyone found anywhere that's "xenical" friendly? It's be good if restaurants/pubs listed calories and fat on the menu.

    In my student days I used to work for Wetherspoons and I know they tried to offer healthier food too, so I just went on the website and I found this though that might be useful...

    Food Facts

    Here's the menu too -

    Things like the Spag bol, sweet chilli noodles and the 5 bean chilli are okay i think.

    OMG how scary are some of those meals!! The large breakfast with mushrooms is shocking 1548 cals and 97.5 g fat!!! I wouldnt have that if i was you! lol

    Could only find the Spag Bol and 5 bean chilli. I'd go for one of those.

    I'm not on xenical, but I eat out a lot with DH and have done the whole time I've been losing weight. I think most places have at least one choice which is ok - my default is mozzarella salad as virtually everywhere offers that. South Beach is unusually well adapted to eating out, but I think most diets can fit around restaurants! I wouldn't stop eating out, you need to keep doing things you enjoy. (I have popcorn at the cinema too :D)

    Take away arent too bad, if you choose correctly. DH likes to get a pizza every now and then. so i have a chicken Shish kebab. Only about 300 cals. I have no salad dressing on and i normally do a few oven chips whilst i wait. Its all within the Xenical limits.
    Trying Chinese next weekend. Its my 30th birthday on Tuesday, so i'm having a day off then and we're having a little get together at the weekend where i will continue taking tablets. We'll be ordering chinese so will chose carefully.
