    The thing is that every Friday is chip night and has been for ages...well now that i am trying to lose weight am i still entitled to have a chippy from the shop? Or should i cut it down to one every 2 weeks?
    I only ever have them once a week, never more and never eat maccies or burger king or anything like that - does that make it okay?

    Also what would be the best thing to eat from a chip shop?

    it really depends what diet you are folllowing. i personally have some sort of takeaway about once a week as a bit or a treat and dont think it does any harm as long as you are 'good' the rest of the week.

    I'm not following any special diet.
    I'm cutting down on junk food and going to the gym but i was think that once week wouldnt matter.

    I walk past a chippie every day on the way back from work. It's soooo tempting but I usually resist. I think if you're eating out you can still be good as long as you choose wisely. It's more difficult in a chip shop though, especially in Scotland cos they deep fry everything from pies to pizzas!!

    I live 2 doors away from a chip shop, was so hard when I first started the diet!! But I don't miss them now....I do have a weekly treat though, I go to a cafe for a great big breakfast every saturday morning! So once a week shouldn't hurt :)
