Going to lunch at an indian buffet tomorrow. I'll plan accordingly with regards to other meals and snacks throughout the day. Also planning to

- skip the rice and naan, maybe get some whole wheat roti/chappatis if included
- look for dals (lentil soups) to fill up on
- look for tandoori meats to avoid heavy sauces
- avoid the butter/cream dishes
- keep my serving sizes small
- eat slowly and drink lots of water or tea

I know that eating out varies hugely depending on how food's prepared at the specific location...but, if anyone happens to know any standard dishes that are on the healthier end of the spectrum, I'd appreciate suggestions :)

Oooohh...I love Indian Food!:p I'm cooking Indian and Thai food this week...and from the Indian recipes I have, it's going to be really tough to lower the fat, sodium and calories...sheesh...didn't realize Indian food was so LOADED with everything bad...but taste soooooooo GOOD!:crazy:

Guess my only advice would be to enjoy yourself, then get right back on the horse the next meal.:)

Ask for Raiata, cucumber and yoghurt salad.

Chana masala!! One of my favorites. Also if you want a saucy dish, you can always ask for the tomato based ones and verify that there is no ghee or yogurt/cream in it.
