You can still eat out. Just have an IP product with a salad at lunch, with your own dressing.
Meat, veggies, salad work well for dinner as well.
What I'm more concerned about is a non-supportive clinic. What are you paying them for?

The BMI chart on WebMD (height/weight/age/activity level) indicate I'm overweight at 26.6. I can see that. My doctor's electronic measurement showed 36.6 today. I'm just not sure what to believe. Crazy! Anybody else see differences like that?
The bioimpedence scales are notoriously inaccurate. That isn't just inaccurate, it is wrong.
Are you sure they didn't mix up BMI with some other calculation (body fat percentage or something?)
Losing weight is hard. Maintenance is hard. Being fat is hard. Pick your hard. (-Ishbel)
