    Oh gawwwwwwd!!!

    Well, I can't understand most of it without a tranlation book but most of it looks like 'goobye ketosis'.

    I think I'd probably miss out the starter (would just chat and sip on sparkling water) and then opt for the plain grilled Dover sole and green / white vegetables.

    Seems harsh but it depends how serious you are about reducing the chance of slipping too far out of ketosis.

    You could try and have a word wth the Chef etc a little earlier - tell him you have a number of food allergies & need plain grilled food with veg, no sauces or gravy etc. Tell him you must avoid milk, wheat & yeast products - those things are in most things that you shouldnt be eating whilst SS'ing of 790'ing.

    I'd skip the starter personally, as this could give you a green light to eat more, in your heart not your head though!

    Ahhh poor you having this sort of do - still if you can get through this one, there'll be nothing you cant do hun xxxx

    The most important thing is to avoid carbs as much as poss and sugar. It's probably better to order things you can resist as much as possible too! Try and leave some on your plate. And go for the least faffed about stuff as well.

    I'd go for the scallops then the sole or the halibut.

    It all sounds lovely though so since you have to do this, do enjoy it too.

    PS No booze!

    How about a caesar salad with chicken. Or ask for fish grilled with no sauce and with vegetables but no potatoes.

    I again would skip the starter

    Hope it goes ok for you whatever you choose.
