1. I'm invited out to a Chinese restaurant in a couple of weeks with a couple of women from work. I don't make friends that easily and this is a nice invitation, I'd like to go.
It's an all you can eat buffet type, so I plan to pick what I Can eat and ignore what I can't but I wondered if someone could suggest good low carb choices in the Chinese food area? 5 weeks ago, it would have been sweet and sour coated battered meat on fried rice but that's out
2. I'm doing Dukan, which means alternating days of just protein with days of protein plus low carb veg. On the just protein days especially, I'm so not hungry that I sometimes eat very little - and today have felt very waffy and distant because of it. I read somewhere that you can't eat too much protein; the more protein you eat, the better the loss. Is this true? Or do I still have to bear calories in mind.
Today's food (which I would identify as eating a lot) was Breakfast: Tinned tuna; Lunch: home made beef stew with a little onion and tinned tomato, some vlf yogurt sprinkled with oatbran and splenda; Dinner: a little smoked salmon and soft cheese, 6 small chipolatas, all meat apart from a little rosemary. Darn! I forgot to eat veg. again.
3. I really, Really want something chocolatey. What does anyone do to scratch that itch? It's purely mental but still, I think I need to work on my low carb desserts.
