    Hi, we're going out today soon with some friends and are going to be out during lunch so will probably stop off somewhere. Normally we'd have a subway or a mccy dees but I want something that won't cripple my day! Any suggestions? I was hoping the 'low fat' subways might be ok but they're still way over the syn allowance :(

    Any ideas ?

    Hi, You don't say if your on a red or a green day? On green days I get a jacket spud and beans from a van in town. If we go to the pub I try to have a pasta dish with tomato based sauce.
    On original days I struggle a bit. M&S do a nice tuna and edame bean salad. At the pub I will have a chicken cesar salad with the dressing on the side. Or I suppose you could have a burger without the bun but I'm guessing that would still be loads of syns due to the fat.

    Thanks everyone. Off out now. Not on either day as had a neutral breakfast. I'd forgotten about jacket potatoes, we have a spud u like type place so hopefully they won't mind going there and I can have a green day, or an idea I had was maybe one of those all day breakfast type places and I could go for bacon and eggs (although the fat may be an issue?).

    Thanks for the ideas!!

    I usually go for gammon steak with a small jacket spud for a red day.

    Jacket spud with beans is ideal for a green day!


    Good luck

    Thanks everyone! I had a jacket with cottage cheese and chives and a pepsi max. It was the first moment since starting 2 1/2 weeks ago that I've felt a bit bummed out by the diet because everyone else had burger king!! But I was good, my meal was less than £3 so cheaper than what they all had too and was probably a lot more filling. I had a solero too whilst they had white magnums, but I didn't feel like I was missing out on that one cos soleros are so tasty. Glad I didn't cave and go with the BK as the jacket was nice (although not AS nice....!) and I've stuck to the plan. Had a great day :)

    well done! it's great when you can go out and socialise and still stay on plan. imagine how crap you'd feel right now if you'd had a burger king!

    Yeah I said to my hubby last night 'man I could have really gone for the Burger king earlier!!' but I would have regretted it now. I'm not normally one of those mililtant dieters and do believe even on a diet you should enjoy yourself but at the moment I'm feeling so desperate to lose the weight and so unhappy about my body that I need the focus. This place is really helping with that so thankyou everyone. I WI on thursday :)
