So I thought I would do good last night, went to a bar. I usually eat dinner around 11 and then go to bed by 1 or 2. Last night I ate dinner at 9 (before going to the bar at 10) and drank water while I was there but dinner was small and I was hungry by 12.

Normally I'd have been in bed 3 hours after eating so I wouldn't have realized I was hungry. Being vegetarian I though great, all I can get here is fries. but we checked out the menu and they had several veggie options. I ended up getting hummus and pita bread. which is also what i 'd had for lunch so even t hough I went a smidge over it wasn't much and it wasn't on fried greasy food! woot!

Good for you! Many people don't realize what options are available to them on bar menus. I work for a company that owns several bars and restaurants and our hummus is to die for! I limit bread, so I sub the bread for red pepper slices, broccoli, carrots, and celery. This ends up being a pretty satisfying lunch.

Even if I just need something to snack on when I'm not at one of my bars I will just order some celery and carrots (or whatever other veggies they have) and some dip.

Good job seeking out something that is not only good for you but that will also fit into your good eating plan!

Sure!

Dip or ranch dressing isn't exactly calorie friendly, but if I am careful about my "dips" it's not a bad way to go.
