    You just need to use some common sense! You know what the healthy options are - avoid fried foods, creamy sauces, cheese, white breads, sweets etc. Go for grilled meats, vegetables, tomato-based sauces. And you can ask for things to be cooked with minimal oil, or for dressings to be put on the side. That way you control how much you use.

    So lasagne is a really bad choice!

    How about ordering from the starter menu to reduce portion size and if you really can't face sitting there with no dessert while you're friends tuck in, see if they have anything like sorbet on the dessert menu, tasty and seeing as it's really only frozen fruit juice, it would be "bad" for you.

    Most importantly, enjoy an evening out with your friends. Diets shouldn't mean that you are forbidden to have any fun :)

    Just enjoy the experience and the company. Choose something you won't feel guilty about but that's still nice. Steer clear of fried or battered. :)

    Yes i do realise these arent healthy options but my question was what would be the best thing to eat between very unhealthy foods... each of them wouldnt be healthy but i wanted opinions on which one would be the healthiest if thats even possible... and so yes, even i know lasagne is a really bad choice but im wondering if its better to eat than to eat for example a burger...

    If it was me I'd go for steak or chicken with a jacket potato. I'd ensure, like has already been said, that I stayed clear of creamy sauces and anything deep fried.
    However, don't punish yourself. Have this one meal 'off' if you need to, and then get back on it. There are very few people who can go through this world eating *only* the healthiest choices every single day.
    Enjoy.

    We all need the occasional treat . Keeps us sane. Just enjoy and drink plenty of water before and After will help your body expel anything bad quicker :)
