View Full Version : Frustrating evening out...

Hey everyone
(Sorry for the multiple posts today)

I went out to eat with my family tonight. Everyone wanted Chinese food so I went along, even knowing it can be tough to do IP at a Chinese food restaurant. I planned ahead. Ordered shrimp and vegetables. Asked the waiter three times to make sure I understood how they were cooked. Then they came out covered in something. I don't even know what the sauce was. It was clear but clearly there. I really minimized what I ate to watch the calories since I didn't know what I was eating.


Has this happened to you in restaurants? What do you do the next day to make up for it?

Hi Rebecca,
I agree, it's so frustrating when what you order doesn't come out as expected. However, there's nothing you need to do the next day...just be 100% tomorrow and you'll be ok!

it happened once and I sent the order back...twice. by the third time they got it right.
sometimes I have refused to eat and refused to pay for it
sometimes I ate minimally and just sucked it up. Don't try to "undo" it tomorrow just get back 100% OP tomorrow. Don't try to blame yourself either, you did the best you could in the situation. all of us have faced times like these and we get through it the best that we can
