we have to go for a chinese buffet meal tomorrow with the ILs. Im on a WW diet and would prefer not to ruin it. Any ideas?

plain rice with chicken and mushroom is a good bet. smile

Boiled rice, and vegetable curry?

Shouldn't be too bad. I am on WW also and a very big plate of boiled rice is only about 7 points.

I think Chicken Chow Mein is one of the good ones on any diet

i would normally share a chick chow mein with ds if we've had chinese but cant really remember whether things like chow mein are on the buffet menu

I've seen chow mein on a buffet.

I think for one meal, can you not just starve eat lightly for the day, so you can have something you really like? I thought that was the point of the points plan - you can do as you please!

well to be honest that will be my only meal for the day. On the bad side, my weigh in day is Monday!

How many points do you get a day? I'm sure for anything more than about 18 points you can get a nice meal - and never mind when your weigh in day is, in the long run you will be fine.


Rice digests very quickly wink and anything chilli will jazz it up/
